3 Self Empowerment Tips you can use right now: Part I

Have you been in a place in your life where nothing is going right?  You can’t believe this is  happening to you or you just don’t know how your life brought you here?

Many people have those thoughts – but the real question is: where do you go from there? How do you move upwards and on wards?

It all begins with empowering yourself to take charge of your own life. Not allowing others to influence or make your choices for you, using your own strengths to learn how to make your own choices about all areas of your life.  Below are three tips to help you start doing exactly that.

  1. Figure out what you want and act on it.  Think big and forget realistic goals and dreams. Some of us forget what it’s like to dream. So think of  a 5 year-old that you know and learn from their freedom with their thoughts and their carefree, free flowing passion for life. Every one of us, no matter how old or young, has the ability to be free and dream big. I challenge you to forget your current situation and express what you truly want.
  2. Empower your mind. Cultivating a new mindset is about your willingness to grow and expand as a human being. Observe your current, dominant thoughts, beliefs and habits. Do they serve you in a positive manner or do they keep you stuck? Cultivating a new mindset is also about acknowledging that you can control your mind and that it does not have to be the other way around.
  3. Check your personality and attitude.  Are you grouchy, grumpy and generally negative? You can’t go through life with these attributes or you will get no where fast. Get rid of the terrible traits and habits that unendingly hamper your progression. And really, who wants a grouchy supporter anyhow?

Take it one small step at a time and enjoy the process.  Stay tuned for Part II.
