Empowerment is not a race to get out of where you are and into your dream life. As you start on this journey, you will continuously discover new things about yourself and you will find that your dreams and desires change because of the growth you experience.
Each step you take shapes who you are each day. Practice something that helps to heal and empower yourself for a week and you will begin to see a difference in your life.
In making self-empowerment a daily practice, we discover new strengths and skills.
- The next step is to develop these strengths and skills little by little.
- Pick one skill that makes you feel exhilarated, that you are passionate about exploring – work on that.
- Then move onto the next one, and so forth.
- Each new skill you develop helps you to grow, heal old scars and reminds you how powerful you really are.
On the other hand, we need to be conscious about loving ourselves on this journey.
As we discover more about ourselves, we may think back on past situations and what we could have done differently. We may even find things about ourselves that we feel are weaknesses. But the truth is that this is a perception. On our journey of self-discovery, it is vital that we learn to forgive and let go of our perceived failures and weaknesses. These perceptions are not our truths – we have made them our truths.
There is no such thing as failure, only experiences that turned into lessons. In examining these experiences, look for the lessons – not how you could have changed the outcome, but rather what you can take from it in shaping who you will be.
Every experience you have had, each interaction you were part of, has shaped who you are. Some of the painful ones you may wish you could forget but together they have created the unique being that you are. And who you are is who the world needs right now. You may struggle with accepting this, but as you grow and get to know yourself on your journey of self-empowerment, the unique role you are meant to play will become clear to you.
As you grow, your needs will change – keep trying things until you find practices that work best for where you are.
Empower yourself in the way that feels right to you and never let another dictate any part of who you should be or what you should do. This journey is about YOU and only YOU.
