Endia Davis continues her Monday Motivation series on BrassyBrown.com. Today’s focus is on empowerment.
Here’s the definition: empower: [em-pou-er] verb (used with object) 1. to give power or authority to; authorize, especially by legal or official means:
Being empowered is an action that starts in the mind. It is all based on the decisions that we make. Be empowered is deciding to take full control and authority over your life no matter what comes your way. You have the power inside to create the life you want and live the life you want. Here are 5 things you can do to become the empowered woman.
Step 1: Mindset. A healthy mindset is so important to be empowered. How you think about things, how you think about your life will shape the life you live. You must be willing to get rid of bad thoughts about YOU! You cannot allow negative thoughts to settle in anywhere in your mind if you want to have an empowered life.
Step 2: Believe in You. Your biggest cheerleader many times will be you! You will have to believe in your success when the world says no! You will have to say YES! Regardless of the situation, you have to know that you were born and made to win. You were not created for failure, but created for a full life, success, and abundance.
Step 3: No Negativity. You must be the guard of your inner spirit. You must be protective of who is around you. Do not welcome anything and anyone in your life. You surrounding affects your thought life. I always say whomever you hang around will either draw you in or you will draw them. Negative environments stifle your thought process and how you perceive things and how you view your life. Having positive friends or surroundings in your life keeps your mind stimulated and allows space for creativity and a continued life of success.
Step 4: Increase Expectation. Increased expectations welcomes opportunities and blessings into your life. Whether you are working on your own business, marriage, or school, be in a spirit of greater expectation. Expect that next business deal or promotion! When you expect to be blessed, you will step settling for less, but expect the best.
Step 5: Pursue. That dream that you have that lifelong goal that you have always wanted to do, or going back to school to complete your degree, GO FOR IT! Pursue your wildest dreams; nothing is more empowering than living your life dream and doing what you have always wanted to do. No more daydreaming! Get up and go get your life’s dreams.
The life you want and deserve is waiting on you. Be Empowered!
