“Never be bullied into silence. Never allow yourself to be made a victim. Accept no one’s definition of your life, but define yourself.” – Harvey Fierstein
You may ask what is empowerment? How to empower yourself is a question many ask. Learning how to empower yourself is a process. It requires you to take steps to build your self-esteem and become a stronger and more confident person. Additionally, it’s taking control of your life, setting boundaries, and establishing your right to live a peaceful and healthy life.
It is important to put God first in your life if you wanted to start living life through faith. Faith is your biggest power tool. The more you trust that you’ll be taken care of, the more you’ll be able to relax in that knowledge. Knowing that God, or whatever higher being you believe in, will be with you all the time can seriously boost your ability to empower yourself. Faith helps you have the courage to do what scares you and to believe in your ability to get things done.
Empowering yourself and living life through faith is a process with patience and determination. It can take a while but you can start today to inch your way to becoming self-empowered and break any “People Pleasing Habits” you might have.
Empowering yourself and living life through faith.
Take responsibility for your thoughts. It’s your choice to adopt criticism from others as your perception of who you are. Allowing criticism from others to rule your thoughts reflects in your behavior.
Eleanor Roosevelt’s once said: “Nobody can make you feel inferior without your permission.” You can choose to brush off criticism and feel good about yourself. Someone may call you ignorant but you’re not unless you decide to agree. “I choose to think well of me.”
Self-esteem that’s based on external achievements doesn’t last! Take a personal inventory of your good qualities. Often what you hate blinds you to your great attributes. Become aware of yourself by looking for them and writing them down just to impress yourself. Read it often and let them sink into your consciousness to help you value yourself more.
Stop negative self-talk and override them with affirmations. Start to believe and have faith that Everything will work out for my good. Pay attention to any self-defeating thoughts you have. Try hard to be positive. It makes a big difference in your spirit.
