“Erin, can I come over right now? I have a big decision to make TODAY and what I am thinking of deciding is a little crazy.”
This was a few weeks ago when a friend of mine had a job offer in her hand. This was something she had been talking about, dreaming about, and wanting for over a year. But it was in an entirely different field than where she had spent the last two decades of her life. And it meant that she would have to take a significant pay cut to go after it. I knew she had given considerable thought on all of her options, but she was having a hard time making the final call. I invited her over and we did a day of Personal Power review to help her get clear on what she really wanted.
I reminded her that many of us underestimate the Personal Power we have inside of us. We are born with an inner strength and resilience that helps us learn and grow, but we often forget about it or take it for granted. It is our Personal Power that guides us into action. It is what allows us to build strong relationships, bounce back from adversity, and chase boldly after our dreams. Our Personal Power comes from our core, our basic instinct and intuition that guides us through this lifetime.
But we often fail to recognize this Personal Power. We ignore our inner voices time and time again, to the point where the whispers are no longer loud enough for us to hear. We set aside our own deepest wishes, thoughts, and desires to satisfy those that are expected of us. We may end up in the wrong career, the wrong relationship, living the wrong lifestyle all because we forgot about our Personal Power.
The good news is that we can get back in touch with it very easily. All we have to do is re- engage with our Personal Power. As I did with my friend Amanda, there are 3 easy things we can all start doing today to recapture our Personal Power.
Your Personal Power is there waiting for you to tap into.
So tell me in the comments below, how are you going to get back in touch with your Personal Power today?
