I GOT the Power

Some people say that they do not like the concept of power and want no part of it. It is true that in our world the word "power" has some negative overtone. It often implies control over others, and, unfortunately, is often misused.

The kind of power I am talking about is entirely different. In fact, it makes you less manipulative of those around you, and certainly more loving. I am talking about power within the self. This means power over your perceptions of the world, power over how you react to situations in your life, power to do what is necessary for you own self-growth, power to create joy and satisfaction in your life, power to act, and power to love.

This kind of power has nothing to do with anyone else. It is not egomania, but a healthy self-love. In fact, egomaniacs have absolutely no feeling of power-thus their compelling need to control those around them. Their lack of power leaves them in a perpetual state of fear, since their survival depends on the outside world. No one is more unloving than a person who can't own his or her own power. Such people spend their lives trying to pull it out of everyone else. Their need creates all sorts of manipulative behavior.

The kind of power I'm talking about leaves you free, since you don't expect the rest of the world to fill you up. It's not the ability to get someone else to do what you want them to do. It's the ability to get yourself to do what you want to do. If you do not own this kind of power, you lose your sense of peace. You are in a very vulnerable place.

When you become powerful within yourself, then you become authentic and loving to those around you. The truth is that love and power go together. With power, one can really begin to open the heart. With no power, love is distorted. You can easily play into being the victim.

Who Are You Flocking With?

Have you ever noticed that positive, successful people flock together? I never see positive successful people with negative downers. Its one reason successful people are successful. How do your associations affect you?

One reason, positive, successful people just seem to gravitate to other positive, successful people. Modeling is one of the most effective ways people learn. They learn by example. You can have negative modeling -which is why people who spend time with negative, unsuccessful people become negative and unsuccessful. Or, you can have positive modeling. People who spend time with positive, successful people become successful themselves. That's because they see successful people as models to learn from. They're inspired by them. They say to themselves, "If they can do it, I can do it".

They're grateful to have these positive, successful people in their lives so they can have a blueprint to follow. They know that if you take the same exact actions and have the exact same mind-set; chances are good that you will get the exact same results.

In contrast, what do poor people do when they hear about other people's success? Do they model them? Do they intend to rise to their level? No! Poor people often judge them, criticize them, mock them or try to pull the successful people down to their own level. How could they possibly learn from rich people or be inspired by them when they're tearing them down?

Energy is contagious? You either affect people or you infect people. Why would you want to be infected by negativity?

Is the Law of Attraction Working for You?

When the Student is Ready the Teacher Will Appear.

What does that mean anyway? It's simple. When you are ready to begin searching for an answer suddenly opportunities, contacts, and information becomes available. How does that work? You become aware. Consciously you are now aware of anything that might vaguely help you in your search. You could pass by a business every day for years not even aware of all the services they provide, or you could know an acquaintance that specializes or knows of someone who specializes in the information you are searching for without even knowing it. Because you are on a mission to get this information, your senses are in overdrive. Every paper, book, store, or person could be or lead you to where you want to go. Your senses are not only in overdrive but so is your vocabulary. You actively tell people about your quest and even during a light chit chat you mention it. Suddenly opportunity seems to be knocking at your door. Without even trying, the information you needed is coming to you from all sources. You notice that the business you've pasted by for the last four years has just what you're looking for. It was always advertised in smaller print but you never noticed it before. That acquaintance you ran into three weeks ago calls and says he's talked to a friend of his that can help you out. You are ready to learn and the teachers have appeared.

The Truth is You REALLY Are in Control - Total Control

For some reason, you are consciously or unconsciously choosing to be in that lousy job, you are choosing to hate the single life, you are choosing to stay in a destructive relationship, you are choosing to let you daughter drive you crazy, you are choosing to sabotage anything good in your life. I know this is difficult to accept the fact that you are the cause of the feelings that take away your joy in life. It is very upsetting when you begin to see yourself as your own worst enemy. On the other hand, this realization is your biggest blessing. If you know you can create your own misery, it stands to reason that you can also create your own joy. Taking responsibility for your experiences of life is the component of a more powerful way of living. Believe that you are the cause of all your experiences of life, meaning that you are the cause of your reactions to everything that happens to you. Whenever you are not taking responsibility, you put yourself in a position of pain, and hence decrease your ability to handle the fear in your life.

1. Taking responsibility means never blaming anyone else for anything you are being, doing, having, or feeling.

2. Taking responsibility means not blaming yourself.

(This sounds contradictory, but it is not. Anything that takes away your power or your pleasure makes you a victim)

3. Taking responsibility means being aware of where and when you are NOT taking responsibility so that you can eventually change.

4. Taking responsibility means handling the chatterbox (the voice inside your head that creates all sorts of stories, theories, assumptions)

5. Taking responsibility means being aware of payoffs that keep you stuck. (Staying in a lousy job for fear of rejection the payoff: easier to stay)

6. Taking responsibility means figuring out what you want in life and acting on it.

7. Taking responsibility means being aware of the multitude of choices you have in any given situation.

Success. What Does it Look Like?

The definition for success is different for everyone, but I find this definition says it the best.


“He has achieved success who has lived well, laughed often and loved much; who has enjoyed the trust of pure women, the respect of intelligent men and the love of little children; who has filled his niche and accomplished his task; who has left the world better than he found it, whether by an improved poppy, a perfect poem or a rescued soul; who has never lacked appreciation of Earth's beauty or failed to express it; who has always looked for the best in others and given them the best he has, whose life was an inspiration; whose memory a benediction”.

You CAN Have Absolute Control

You have absolute control over but one thing, and that is your thoughts. This is the most significant and inspiring of all facts known to man. It reflects man's divine nature. This divine prerogative is the sole means by which you may control your own destiny. - Napoleon Hill "Think and Grow Rich"

Wow! That is profound and so true. It is your thoughts that become your language, that becomes your actions and thus your life - destiny. YOU have the power to control it. The question is, "What are you going to do with it?"

What Makes That Important?

You are making decisions all day and in the midst of all that, you are always making something more important than something else. Notice that. What are you making more important? Once you figure out what it is, ask yourself why that is. In the process you will learn so much more about yourself that you probably never paid attention to.
As Pythagoras said, "Know thyself and you know everything."

If You're Afraid You'll Make a Mistake...

That quote came from all places the Family Circus comic. How true. If you want something to happen you must take the risk that you'll fail. But don't look at it as failing. It's NOT failing. It's learning. You're just on a learning curve. The most successful people in the world had a lot of failures before they became successful. They had to. It was a learning process. Without those learning experiences, they never would have become who they are today.

And remember what Don Shula said, "Success is not forever and failure is never fatal."

What Would You Rather Give More Energy to?

That's a good question. How often have you stopped to ask yourself if you're doing what you really want to do? Am I putting my energy into finishing the project I started or do I keep putting it off to do other daily stuff? And it is really just stuff. Keeping busy but not getting anywhere. Or, am I creating the life I want or going with the flow? Figure out what you rather give your energy to and then focus your energy there, spending time with your family doing things or working an extra hour or two. It's basically finding what does it for you. What makes your day? Put your energy there and you will be a much happier person. Besides, the world could use more happy people.

See it. Believe it. Be it.

What you want to be eventually, you must be every day. With practice, the quality of your deeds gets down to your soul. - Frank Crane

See yourself doing it. Believe that it can be done. Work on it on a daily basis. If you sway off your course, don't stop, get back on. With each day it becomes part of who you are and you no longer have to think about it. You then have embodied it.

What is Your Gift to the World?

We all were given our own special unique gifts to give to the world. What are they? That's for you to find out. The strange thing about gifts is that you may not recognize it as a gift because it comes so naturally to you. Are you a good listener? Do people naturally confide in you without being prompted? Or, are you the "go to" person? The one people go to when they want to make sure something gets done? Those are gifts. What is it that you are naturally good at and comfortable doing? You didn't have to learn it because it is part of who you are. You excel when you are using your gifts without really trying. In essence, you were born with them.

All your gifts were given to you for a reason; to use and share with as many people as possible. Start sharing your gifts. Stop hoarding them or pretending they don't exist. It comes down to this: If not you, then who? Remember, you are unique. NO ONE has the same exact gifts that you have in the same exact degree, used in the same exact situation. Go for it. What have you got to lose? Small steps, it starts with you.

“How wonderful it is that no one need wait a single minute before starting to improve the world” - Anne Frank

Uncomfortable? Good!

When things for you start to get uncomfortable, that's a good sign that you're growing. Yes, it may not seem all that fun at the moment, but in the end you will come away with increased knowledge and experience. Think back to when you were learning a new skill while you were growing up. There are so many to choose from because you were learning ALL THE TIME. Everything was new. Learning how to walk, riding a bike, baking a cake, learning a new subject, driving a car, dating for the first time, your first kiss, and your first job were all new experiences that you overcame and now you have embodied them. Do you really have to think about how to kiss anymore? All of those things you overcame and more importantly you grew. Therefore, the next time you are feeling uncomfortable with a new challenge that you are faced with, recognize it for what it is a chance to grow. It's all a matter of your perception that can make all the difference.

You See What You Want to See

Yes, that's what people do. They see what they want to see and then collect evidence to support that position. It's the Law of Attraction at work.

Take for example an environmental or the political issues that are being talked about these days. For every position that someone holds there is someone else countering that position with new or different evidence. Each side is seeing what they want to see. It is what they already believe in. They keep looking and hearing for the side that they already believe in, collecting evidence along the way to support it. When something does come up that may cast doubt on their beliefs, it is casted aside as not reliable, gossip, political positioning. Think about it, if everyone was truly open to all the evidence that is out there, we would not have debates or discussions, in essence, there wouldn't be conflict. Of course, the evidence could come down as being inconclusive, in fact, that is usually the case. Therefore, all anyone can go on is their own beliefs. Be aware of when you are holding a position. Are you doing it to be right, to keep your position? When you are collecting evidence, are you truly looking at all aspects or only the ones you agree with? Basically, are you truly being open.
