Reclaim Your Power is our next series. In this series, we’ll be looking at what you can do in your mentally, emotionally, physically, and spiritually fit rooms to Reclaim Your Power.
Let’s enter into your mentally fit room today where we will talk about where you give away your power every single day. I have had so many people share with me about how much my book, The Powerhouse In You has helped them own their own power in their life or reclaim it. At the beginning of the book, I talk about this quote from a book titled, Beyond Positive Thinking by Robert Anthony.
“There are no victims, only volunteers.”
So what does this quote mean? When going into a situation, chances are that you don’t know what you don’t know. However, if you keep going back and you feel like you’re being inauthentic, you will find yourself saying yes when you actually mean no.
You aren’t speaking your truth. You’re not being authentic to yourself and maybe also not setting healthy boundaries. And if you are doing this, then somewhere, you are in fact giving your power away. Because you want them to like you, and you want them to accept you. However, it’s at your own cost.
Usually, it’s a limiting belief that’s holding you back. My mentor, Jack Canfield, author of Chicken Soup For The Soul and The Success Principles shares that there are three main (limiting) beliefs:
- I’m not good enough.
- I’m not worthy enough
- I’m not smart enough.
So let’s say, yours is, “I’m not worthy enough”.
At the core of it, we know that to overcome this belief, you need to replace this with I am worthy enough. And that is the secret right there. That’s the key that opens the door to us owning our powers. When you are loving yourself, it’s much easier for you to be truthful about what you want and what you don’t want. And that is the essence of owning your power.
So, for the next 7 days, I would love for you to pay attention to where you give away your powers, and make a conscious choice to say:
Not on my watch at least.
I’m gonna own my power here.
I’m not going to offer my services.
I’m gonna say no.
This in itself is a full sentence: “No”.
I would love for you to share what it is that you reflected on with this newsletter. .
Remember, you are a POWERHOUSE.
BE more kind to yourself.
BE more compassionate.
Be more forgiving.
Be more loving.
Wishing you a powerful week.
