You are in the driver’s seat of your own life!
Throughout our lives, we are often encouraged to ignore our inner voices and make choices to please others rather than ourselves.
We are continually giving away our power. This may be happening on a subconscious level, but it affects our lives nonetheless.
When you allow others in your life to have negative influences on the manners in which you think, feel, or behave, you are the one who suffers.
Changing the way you act around certain people in order to win their approval can leave you feeling exhausted and confused. If you aren’t protecting your energy and values, your boundaries can become blurred and you can end up feeling unsure and losing yourself in others.
When you decide to take back your personal power, it is important to recognize the situations in which you are giving it away. Perhaps you are waiting for permission to do things you don’t truly need permission for? Are you making choices that you think would please others instead of what would please you? Maybe you are putting the needs of others ahead of your own, even when it is detrimental to yourself?
When you know that you have the power to live up to a higher potential but choose not to reach for it, you are also giving away your power. It might be scary to listen to your own inner voice and choose to follow it, but it is an important component of living in your power.
Becoming aware of your inner voice that tells you what you want and need is a great way to start stepping into your power. Differentiating between what you know is good for you versus what others have told you that you should want and need puts you back in control of your life!
When you are in control of your thoughts, words, and actions, you get to decide the impact that your experiences will have in your life.
Although you can’t control the world around you, you do have the power to choose how you respond to events in your life.
I will leave with this famous quote that I love by Viktor Krankl:
“Everything can be taken from a man but one thing – the last of human freedoms – to choose one’s attitude in any given set of circumstances, to choose one’s own way.”
