Self empowerment implies self belief, trust, and self leadership. Being self empowered, you will KNOW you have an active role in creating the future of your dreams.
"As soon as you trust yourself, you will know how to live."
Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
In order to trust yourself, you must know yourself! Explore your passion, purpose, your values and priorities through your personal mission development. Find out who you are!
Then, cultivate your personal success and fulfillment by giving yourself a fertile and stable internal environment. This translates to an attitude that is:
When I was a child, my mother had a small patch of ground by the side of the house that she called a garden!?!
During the 2 years of this 'garden', I was occasionally asked to help work in it. It was a bit of a joke. The soil seemed about 95% clay, and the seeds she planted would rarely become anything more than a sprout. A few very hardy seeds and a few weeds would persist, but it was a fairly futile exercise.
I had an aunt who lived on the same street. She cultivated the soil in her yard, tilling and adding manure and fertilizer. She found out about the vegetables she planted and gave them the best conditions to encourage vibrant growth. She had a lush garden and it was a joy to see the plants thriving in it. It was even more fun to eat her fresh homemade pumpkin pie at harvest time!
The simple difference was that she offered the seeds and plants the healthy environment that encouraged what they did naturally. And that's what we want to do,... create a vibrant healthy personal environment that will encourage our self development and motivation.
These elements may be viewed as the requisites to a healthy inviting environment for self growth.
If you are serious about enjoying fresh organic goodies from your own personal growth garden... cultivate these:
You can wield personal power with positive self talk. There is one caveat... your subconscious power must be working with you. When the subconscious is in alignment with your highest wishes, it is supporting the same constructive ideas as your positive thinking self talk. This is powerful.
What self motivation seeds ensure you are planting SUCCESS motivation? Motivate yourself properly to start with, and you'll love your life.
Think back to previous hopes and dreams, and the success you have achieved in your life. You can see that you had an underlying belief in yourself that you would be able to accomplish those particular things. Whether it was learning to ride a bike, or play a musical instrument,
or graduate from university,.. whatever you have achieved, you believed that you could. You were self empowered for that pursuit.
The structure of society has often encouraged people to defer to an expert and trust them unconditionally rather than foster belief in oneself. Many of us have grown with this understanding that there are experts who will tell us how to do whatever it is we are interested in. Society has taught us that self improvement advice is forthcoming from physician's for better health, religious leader's to tell us what god to believe in, and psychiatrist's to solve our emotional and mental health problems.
Experts of course have an abundance of knowledge and may be great resources. Empowered individuals take an active role in learning, sharing thoughts and ideas with other experts, instead of glibly believing and accepting what apparent authorities promote. It may seem like a bit of work sometimes, taking primary responsibility in ones own self development. It is certainly a life change in attitude for people who have become accustomed to depending on anothers viewpoint or justification, rather than cultivating knowledge and belief in oneself. When the effort is expended to achieve self empowerment, you will find the riches that much sweeter.
By becoming more aware of our self concept, improving self esteem, and increasing self motivation, our self knowledge and confidence build. It is a natural progression to trusting ourselves and our
As personal leadership development unfolds, our sense of being active creative participants in life also grows. This internal state of self empowerment is a dynamic platform to move forward from in our personal development plan.
