Every single day you are bombarded by thoughts you are thinking- by choices you are choosing and by decisions you are making. Ultimately, your life is defined by these moments.
Every choice you make can lead you in two directions, and with one quick shift you can be choosing between empowering or disempowering yourself.
How do you learn to recognize the difference……..
If you are connected with who you really are on a deep level, if you know your passions and priorities, if you are in the creative flow of your talents and gifts. You are in your power. If you are feeling energized and vibrant, and you are experiencing an inner knowing and you feel unstoppable. You are empowered.
If you are not living your dream, if you are not in control of your life. If you are keeping yourself away from being your best- Then you are not standing in your power. If you are feeling, disconnected, depressed, sickly, hurt, pain, fear or worry. You are “disempowered”.
As you go through your very hectic day, listen to your internal dialogue, examine your thoughts, pay attention to your feelings, your body, and your mind. Listen to the clues they are leaving.
Allow the essence of who you are and the person you truly meant to be, to stand fully in its power.

Think for a moment, are your thoughts, choices, decisions empowering or disempowering you?

Great blog, it is a daily choice for me every day to take the road of empowerment. Usually a barometer for me is how I feel. It is a dead give away when I am feeling angry, sorry for myself or have lack of energy, I know I must switch and shift.

Sometimes, I feel that I’m not in control with my life and I’d like to change that. I’ll take your suggestion and try to listen to my inner dialogue. Maybe this will help me Live More. Thanks for the tip!

I like that the wording states you “empower or dis-empower.” Too often people think others have to empower them. You need to take control of your choices.

Need your opinion, Lolly It is my personal belief that angry people are disempowered; however, most of the literature and internet info is the opposite, saying anger empowers.
I am hoping that it is a difference of being an angry person (disempowered) vs. getting angry (empowered).
Would love to hear your expertise on this. Thanks
