Self-empowerment is a term that is frequently discussed in the personal development arena.
Despite its many discussions, some are still confused as to what it’s all about. If you have been struggling with this matter, read on. This article will shed some light on the subject for you.
Simply stated, it involves changing your way of thinking and feeling about yourself in order to achieve a goal. The term becomes even clearer when rephrased. Self-empowerment is giving yourself power to achieve a determined goal. Obviously, it can help anyone to improve their life, but how can it benefit you?
1. No more procrastinating about your life goals - A key part of being empowered is removing emotional obstacles that hold you back. These may be feelings of self-doubt, excessive worry or fear of the unknown. Many times these feelings are a result of one or more past events that made us feel unable to control the world around us and certain situations in life.
Most of us carried those feelings into the present. By understanding that those events were out of our control…and are now in the past, we are able to let them go. Letting go will allow you to live in the present and look toward the future. This empowers you to work toward your goals now.
2. Better relationships - Some people walk into a room and seem to light it up with their presence. They easily build strong friendships and have no trouble working out interpersonal problems. These people are self-empowered. They radiate confidence, gratitude and love.
For most, this doesn't come naturally. Instead, it is developed through taking small daily consistent actions. These actions include: showing gratitude toward others, looking for the positive even in negative situations…and performing random acts of kindness.
It’s clear that making these tiny changes in your daily life can have enormous impact on the energy you project. They can have a positive impact on your relationships…completely turning your life around. Having better relationships is one of the biggest benefits of self-empowerment.
3. Enjoying life each day - Those who are depressed and suffer from low self-esteem don’t enjoy life to the fullest. However, those who are self-empowered tend to enjoy every second of life.
They see the good in the world and feel in total control of their lives. They also participate regularly in life-fulfilling hobbies. They spend enjoyable times with friends and family. They make this a conscious effort. On a daily basis, they make the decision to enjoy life instead of being overwhelmed by it.
I find it somewhat alarming that many people don’t engage a personal development plan for becoming more empowered. If you are one of those, you shouldn’t ignore it anymore.
