So, I can hear you saying, “Okay Dave, you’ve spent the last few weeks telling me how great I am and going on about my ‘perfect imperfection’ but I’m not feeling it. What practical advice do you have? What can I DO?”
I’m so glad you asked.
The first step to unleashing your own personal power is to recognize that you have it.
That sounds like a total jip, right? It’s like saying the only way to be powerful is have power, but you already are powerful, you just don’t know it yet.
Consider, while you may not be able to control everything that affects your life you do control how you respond to what happens. The ability to control your response is power and you decide whether or not and how to use it.
Refusing to acknowledge power you do have is choosing powerlessness. If you choose powerlessness you have no one to blame for your circumstance but you.
So the first step is to take your power, it’s yours – always has been and always will be. Don’t give it away for someone else to use over you. Take it, and when you do, you take control of your life.
Realize, this takes practice. If you are in the habit of flying off on your emotions, taking a minute to consider your options may be unfamiliar to you. But only by acknowledging that you have the power to decide on a response can you begin the practice that will lead to actualizing it.
You ARE in control of your own life, no matter what happens you do have power. USE IT.
To your perfect imperfection,
P.S. One of the first ways I began to take control of my life was to take control of my health.
