Finding Your Power

The definition of personal power is based on strength, confidence, knowledge and I would add self-respect.  We are all born with personal power but sometimes you lose it, whether your parents didn’t encourage this quality or you allowed people in your life to slowly discourage this part of you.  I want to encourage you to find your power and it begins with you.


Every morning when you wake up I want you to say “Thank you for letting me wake up to see another beautiful day”.  This will give you the strength to actually get out of the bed, wash your face, brush your teeth, shower and get dressed. Next, I want you to do something for yourself first: Have a cup of coffee, breakfast, morning walk. It doesn’t matter what you do as long as it makes you feel good. Then, if you have a family take care of their needs but remember that you are in charge of not allowing your kids, husband, wife, dog, cat or anyone else to take advantage of you. Finally, after your family needs have been taken care of I want you to focus on yourself and embrace your strength and positive attitude over the rest of your day.


The definition of confidence is a feeling of self-assurance arising from one’s appreciation of one’s own abilities or qualities. When you step outside the comfort of your home it is very important that you hold your head up high, put your shoulders back and move with a purpose. Ultimately “Believe in yourself”


The definition of knowledge is awareness, facts, information and skills acquired by a person through experience or education. In your personal life please be aware of all the skills and lessons that life has taught you. Also, realize all the skills and lessons that you teach others.  In your professional life own your skills, facts, and information, we all have our unique talents.


The definition of self-respect is a feeling that one is behaving with honor and dignity. Even if you don’t have the inner strength that you should have, your confidence isn’t that strong, and your knowledge is lacking IT DOESN’T MATTER as long as you have Self-Respect other people will Respect you.  If someone disrespects you, hold on to your honor and dignity by speaking up for yourself and making it very clear that you will not tolerate their behavior.
