Sometimes, it’s just so hard to believe that you were actually made to be an empowered person. In this time of history, there is so much being written about mindfulness, empowerment and self-awareness. All these different topics help you understand who you are as an empowered person. Still, it can be hard to live as an empowered person.
Life can hit you hard at times and you can lose the sense of empowerment. Or, certain circumstances can reinforce your feeling of lacking in your inner person. When you feel like you have been brought down to nothing and everything seems out of control; how do you get to an empowered state? Then to top it off, if you feel underappreciated and even disrespected that’s one more thing to emotionally deal with. Your supportive, interior design business coach is here to help navigate all of this!
However, inner characteristics of strength (though they feel destroyed) can always be re-cultivated in your life. So, if you are feeling the lack of empowerment within your inner person, let me show you how to bring that back into play.
Believe In Yourself
It can be hard to believe in yourself when you feel like you’ve been knocked down by life. However, you can cultivate a belief in yourself that you still have contributions to make in this world. You can still believe that the skills, talents and experiences you have are valuable to the world around you and beyond. Self-belief is believing that through the trials and tribulations of life those positive things about you are only made stronger.
Make Your Own Decisions
There are a lot of controllers in this world. They come in many fashions and forms. It’s like they have a lust to control everyone in their environments. That is not so with an empowered person, you will not stand for being controlled! Empowered people make their own decisions and choose their own way. You always try to take full responsibility for how your life evolves.
If you are not in a place where you have the freedom to make your own decisions, ask yourself, “What is this doing for my self-esteem?”, “What is this doing for my freedom to think for myself?” and “How will letting other people make decisions for me, benefit my future?”
When you don’t make decisions for yourself you lose so much more of yourself than you can see, till later on. You lose a lot of tenacity and fortitude of your own.
When you choose to get back into empowerment, you can see that you can’t afford to be without self-esteem, thinking for yourself and having a say-so in your future.
Empowered people know how to set boundaries around their life. For example, in relationships where there is unhealthiness and no balance you know how to let people know what boundary lines they are not allowed to cross. Empowered people will reinforce those boundaries when others are pushing the boundary lines.
Also, when it comes to work or projects you don’t let those things control you. You don’t let yourself get overrun or buried by work, to the point you cannot rest. You know how to communicate what you can and cannot do. You will not over work yourself (to the point of burn-out) to meet goals.
There are a number of ways to make boundaries in life for many different situations. Are there any areas in your life that seem like they don’t have proper boundaries? One of the quickest ways to begin feeling more empowered, is to just set some boundaries. That makes your life flow a bit better.
The Ability to Re-Invent, Grow and Adapt
An empowered person realizes that at times you might have to reinvent yourself, in order to move forward in life. So, you recognize the seasons of life where it might be time to upgrade your skills, knowledge and personal development (in business and personal life). An empowered person is not afraid to figure out what their new, re-invented life could look like and go after it.
So, in closing empowered people are just action takers. Although, their conditions may not be perfect they still pull up their bootstraps and do what needs to be done! Remember, you are made to be an empowered person and you’ve got what it takes.
