Many are skeptical about getting involved with stipulations of life essence, the passion, the purpose and the power that nourish living to a greater achievement beyond imagination.
“No saves us but ourselves. No one can and no one may. We ourselves must walk the path” – Buddha
In some ways, we may have settled for less or sidelined instead of being actively involved in these essences of life exhibited in the game of life with passion, purpose and power.
Power is the ability to influence or change an outcome. Personal power on the
other hand, has to do with the influence and authority a person posses over an outcome, which may include power by reward, Coercive, legitimate, expert or referent power. In other words, yours ability to build relationships effectively, to persuade, influence and communicated with others in such a way that they help you accomplish your goals which essential to everything that happens to you and a key to finding personal power in your life.
The Simple Law of Control
Psychologists call this “Locus Control Theory”. There is a “Law of Control” that says you feel positive about yourself to the degree to which you take control of your life. It also says that you feel negative about yourself to the degree to which you feel you are not in control of your life. Each person feels that their life and personal power is controlled by either internal or external factors. A person with an internal locus of control feels that he or she is in charge and is making the decisions that determine the direction of his or her life.
Also, the person with an external locus of control feels that others are in charge, and that he or she is controlled by external factors and influences about which he or she can do very little. They feel that their boss, their bills, their childhood experiences, or their current marriage or relationship controls their life.
To Personalize Your Power
It sounds more to me like being a great leader. Leadership is not all about being the best; it’s about making the people around you better. Like the popular saying that those who shine from within do not need a stage, the important questions are:
- Am I growing?
- Where am I going?
You cannot expect others to do your own push ups for you, how many beliefs have been handed out to you without you knowing why? Personal Power may require you shutting up the demons inside of you. Do not believe everything you think because they said the mind has a mind of its own.
Nothing in life has meaning except the meaning you gave it. You don’t react to life with emotions, you should respond to life from your spirit because it is not about what happens to you … but what you do with what happens to you.
It is no doubt that when you live a fulfilling life, you have the power to create your own circumstances, owing to your enthusiasm and passion; rather than allowing life situations to frustrate and influence your mood.
Knowledge is Power
However, “Clear Mind, Better Performance, Bigger Results’’ – Jamie Smart
You are feeling your thinking not what you are thinking about. It is exciting to posses the knowledge with the privilege of encouraging and motivating men and women to recognize and step into the magnitude of power that resides within them.
Mindful meditation has been proved a wonderful practice to control anxious thoughts that often keep us awake at night. You take some time to sit still, take a few deep breaths, relax your entire body, and focus on your inhalation and exhalation. As you focus on your breathing you take control of your thoughts, many of your thoughts cease and you experience inner power, – peace.
This simple practice teaches you to manage your thoughts and emotional state, rather than being enslaved to your anxious thoughts. By simply acknowledging the thought or emotion and letting it float away is enough to bring peacefulness to your thoughts.
