Why you need to be Self-Empowered

Being self-empowered means that you’re intentionally in control of your own life and your destiny. You set goals and make positive decisions that lead you towards where you want to be, and you have the confidence in yourself to assertively make the decisions that lead you towards the achievement of those goals.

It means you have the financial ability to keep working towards what you want, and it means that you consistently work on your own personal development to enable you to reach the goals you’re setting for yourself.

When you’re self-empowered, you feel more confident and focussed on what you want to achieve in your life and you have a clear idea of what your goals are, and how to actively work towards them. You better understand where your strengths lie and how to use them to your advantage, and you also understand your weaknesses without feeling inadequate or comparing yourself to others.

Self-empowered people know they are in charge of their own destiny, and don’t sit back and wait for life to happen to them.

Let’s look at an example. Think of a situation where something could (or has) happened to you outside of your control. It could be an accident, losing your job, a relationship breakdown or anything else that has had a big impact on you.

Now the actual event is outside of your control, but how you react and what you choose to next is within your control. You could choose to dwell on what’s happened, be upset and angry about it, you could ask why me over and over and relive all the details again and again in your mind. Initially, all those thoughts and feelings are perfectly normal and in fact it’s actually really helpful to allow yourself to fully feel your feelings and emotions and let yourself have some time to process what’s happened to you. But what you do next will depend on your level of self-empowerment. Do you choose to continue with these thoughts and feelings, or do you choose to look forward, decide on where you want to go from here, and start making plans and taking that next step? One path comes from disempowerment, the other from self-empowerment. Which would you rather choose?

Being self-empowered seems pretty cool right? And it is! Being fully self-empowered fits under 3 main pillars which all combine create a strong foundation of personal success:
