Three Simple Steps To Self Empowerment


Self empowerment might seem elusive and far off to you at this moment.  If you’ve ever found yourself stuck in a rut, you probably know that feeling of helplessness that takes over your life. You want...and and know that you need self empowerment, but you feel helpless to do anything about it.

Perhaps you find yourself constantly making plans to improve your life’s circumstances, but you never get around to taking action because it seems so frightening.

Taking action can unnerve and frighten you. But, it can also motivate you! When you learn to use action effectively, it can provide fuel for moving forward and fulfilling your desired life circumstances.

In fact, you may not even have a clear reason for feeling frightened… you’re just afraid of the “unknown.”  I'd like you to seriously think about it.  Many times you will discover that you are just simply scared of being scared.

Funny thing, once you decide to take action, you realize there was never anything to fear in the first place. You begin to feel that you’ll never get stuck again!

Here are three simple steps that can help you get started:

Before starting, be sure you understand that your life is the way it is right now because you hesitate in taking some action!

Try to get clear about this, because then you’ll understand the importance of moving forward. No matter how anxious it makes you feel at first, you’ll know that moving forward is simply something you have to do for your personal success.

Decide on one action to get the ball rolling. Don’t overwhelm yourself. Think about your life right now. Ask yourself which situation you want to change first. You might choose your career, relationships, health, financial situation, or anything else that makes you feel powerless and stuck.

Then
think about one simple action you can take to trigger some positive change.It doesn’t have to be a huge action, just some action to start building momentum.

Once you’ve decided on your action step, you’ll have to push yourself to take that action, no matter what. This may seem inconceivable to you, or even scary.
Keep in mind that most often the things you fear are never going to happen anyway.

In fact, you may not even have a clear reason for feeling scared… you’re just afraid of the “unknown”. Sometimes you are just simply scared of being scared.

Repeat the same step. Then, add more steps. Once you’ve taken one step forward, keep pushing yourself to take others. Think about this: Even if you take a hundred small steps in a month, you’ll be empowering yourself for making positive changes in your life. This cannot help but bring about better circumstances for you!

Talk it up! Give yourself a pep talk. Push yourself in a way you’ve never done before, so you can move forward just a little bit. No sudden jolts. Easy does it. Just do something.

After you take that first step...

Let go of any expectations of what will happen because of your actions. Allow yourself to feel great simply because you did something about your situation …you took some action.

Here’s the good news… by taking action, you quickly begin building momentum. It has a snow ball effect. So, get that ball rolling! The more you do it, the easier it gets. Eventually, it seems almost effortless… and you continue to have that sense of self empowerment.  You are strengthened and empowered with every step you take.

Remember, prolonged non-action can create a cycle of doubt and inertia over time.
Start some action toward your self empowerment... right now.  By being proactive, you can create a positive cycle that continues to grow. You’ll get results from both action and non-action. From which would you rather get results?
You want and need self empowerment, but you feel helpless to do anything about it.
