Empowerment makes us feel strong, in control and quite confident. We look for external factors to provide it, but empowerment can also come from within, and that’s where its strongest potential lies. In order to have a strong sense of empowerment coming from within, you need to define a meaningful purpose. This will help you develop the vision of what you really want, resulting in actionable items over which you can take a full control. Sometimes, empowering others can be a great help in fulfilling your own dreams and goals.
- Self-empowered people know what they want and take responsibility for their own lives.
- To become self-empowered requires knowing what you want and having a higher sense of purpose.
- Take action and then take responsibility for the outcomes of those actions, both good and bad.
“Based on what I’ve just described, it’s natural for most of us to seek a sense of self-empowerment in our own lives.”
