There might be times in life when we have all felt powerless.  Powerless to change our lives and to have the “will” to take responsibility for our lives.  It could be that we have to take a long hard look at life and make some changes in order to empower ourselves and love the life we want to live.

When we talk about self-empowerment it is about the individual feeling that you have the power to make decisions about your own life and the power to change it.  You can make it whatever you want it to be and have a sense of what you want it to look like.

So how do we empower ourselves? Here is some things you could do.

  • Self-empowerment starts with you and recognising what in your life needs to change.
  • Recognise that you have choices.  You can change what you want to change.
  • Is there something you need to forgive yourself for, so that you can move forward with life?
  • Is it perhaps time to challenge that voice on the inside that is critical of you?
  • Give yourself credit for the things you do well.
  • Appreciate the things you do even if no one else tells you.
  • Know your weaknesses and your strengths.
  • Give yourself the space to make mistakes
  • Know your limitations.
  • Stand in your strengths.
  • Accept the things you cannot change.
  • Recognise that change is a process.
  • Have faith in yourself.
  • Trust in yourself and your ability to make choices.
  • Have the courage to change the things you can change.
  • Believe that you can.
  • Believe in yourself.
  • Love yourself.

When looking at the list above it really is about you and your life.

Self-empowerment gives confidence and confidence gives us the ability to step into life and to live life to the full.
