What Does it Mean to Be Powerful ?

Power is a much deeper concept than what a lot of people presume it to be.


What does it mean to be Powerful ? To me , being powerful means a lot of things :

When you've had the guts to change your life for the better , you've been powerful;when you've showed up in spite of terrible you were feeling inside , you've been powerful .

When you've told your inner critic to shut the hell up , you've been powerful; when you've had the courage to confront the demons in your head , you've been powerful.

When you've intentionally chosen to focus on the silver lining and have been grateful, you've been powerful; when you've decided to be and feel alive in the moment , you've been powerful.

When you've been kind to yourself , you've been powerful ; when you've been strict with yourself , you've been powerful.

When you've sided with your faith rather than your fear , you've been powerful; when you've picked yourself up after falling down , you've been powerful.

When you've been brave enough to follow your heart and stand up for yourself , you've been powerful ; when you've believed in your own truth rather than the opinions of others , you've been powerful.

In all these situations , you've used that reservoir of power which exists inside all of us. Instead of being a victim , you've chosen to tap into your power and fight the crises and that's what it means to be powerful.  You've respected and trusted yourself enough to take that chance with your power and that's what has made you powerful!
