Do you ever think about the true meaning of empowerment? What does it really mean to be empowered? The dictionary says it is the “authority or power given to someone to do something,” or “the process of becoming stronger and more confident, especially in controlling one’s life and claiming one’s rights.”
Empowerment is simple
Empowerment is simple. It comes down to one thing, that is, choices. It is having the freedom to makechoicesin life, or it’s about having options. You can choose to go down this road or another. You can choose either to returnto school or take the job. The decision is yours whether to marry your dream man or to wait until you find the right man. Your choice to follow others or stay true to yourself is still yours. The power to lift or to bring people down lies in your hands. Your choices are your own, and you are in charge. So, show some love for yourself. You don’t have to follow what others have “planned” for you. You can choose your own path, or go your own way. Don’t be afraid to listen to your heart. It’s your life, and you have the choice.
You can learn to advocate for yourself, reach inside your soul, and find your inner strength. It is there, you just have to find it and let it show its face. Instead of putting others down, you can empower them by lifting them up. A put-down does no good. It damages people and accomplishes nothing. Why not give people compliments, encourage them when they’re down, and point out the good instead of the bad so that they, too, can achieve their dreams?
It is like the quote — “You can stay in bed and keep dreaming your dreams, or you can get up and go after those dreams.” There is no better time than now to start being each other’s cheering squad, including your own.
