Empowering Qualities – Things To Do and Think To Empower Yourself Today

Want to Empower Yourself Today?

Here’s some tips.

What is it to EMPOWER? What is it to BE EMPOWERED?

The beauty and the POWER of it is: it’s as unique as YOU.

YOU are in control of it.  Whether or not you feel EMPOWERED or if you feel powerless.

It’s not magic.  It’s ACTION.

And it’s unique to you.

In other words, what works for someone else may not work for you – that’s the sheer brilliance and power of it all. You don’t have to follow ANYONE ELSE’s path. You don’t have to model yourself after anyone.  Can you use techniques and behaviors of others? Absolutely. But what works for you to uplift, inspire, make the changes you need to make: THAT is YOUR story.  And you have the ability to go from powerLESS to EMPOWERED.

It’s one step at a time.  It’s a journey.  But YOU can and WILL get there.

You must first believe in yourself – and if you can’t do that just yet (hang on- you WILL get there).

You must make some decisions: What is holding you back? What is it that you want? What is draining your power currently? What’s the first step/or area you want initial impact?

As you answer those – the behaviors create inertia for further change and improvement.

Make ONE small decision, just one small change TODAY.

You are now on your way to permanent change and on your way to EMPOWERING yourself.

Read these following examples of mind-changing attitude and behavior and look for upcoming posts for step-by-step guidelines and action steps to becoming fully EMPOWERED!

“Momma, What Happened?” How To Talk To Your Kids About The News

“Momma, What Happened?!” How To Talk To Your Kids About The News.

“Momma, What happened?!” (How could I possibly tell them the news?)

“What?”, I scurried to wipe my tears, stalling to steal a few minutes to compose myself.

“Momma! You’re crying! What’s wrong?!”, my 10-year-old is now wide-eyed and scared. In seconds, my twin 8-year-olds are by my side, just as scared.

I tried more stalling and mumbled something incoherent.

I couldn’t lie.  I couldn’t evade.

But how do I tell them of the atrocities?

“Too Pretty To Do Homework” Shirt – TOO STUPID To Know Better!

TOO PRETTY To Put Up With This Crap; TOO EMPOWERED To Stay Quiet 

Have you told your 7-year-old daughter that she’s STUPID today?

No worries. Why not let a t-shirt do it for you?

Hold on just a sec.

Let me fix my hair, check my lipstick and adjust my own tight t-shirt.  Because clearly that’s the only thing we dumb neophytes of intelligence are really worth.

At least it’s the message of yet another product targeting the tween-set.  This time, the only things lasting are outrage and public backlash.

The center of the storm?  A shirt for sale in J.C.Penney’s  back-to-school clothes – the prime target: tween girls ages 7-13.

But, instead of starting a fad, it created a firestorm.

C’mon. Seriously, how STUPID can you get?
