Where in your life do you give your power to?
I had been in millions of situations where I felt extremely powerless (with all the trauma, emotional abuse, poverty and shit).
But then one day, I woke up to the thought that maybe, the universe put me in these situations to learn the lesson of how to take my power back, and really own it.
By giving away my power to so many things, I hold myself back from achieving happiness and experiencing my highest potential. And I decided that I will no longer allow that to happen.
The truth is that you are more powerful than you think you are – it’s just a matter of whether you own it or you give it away.
Here are things to stop giving your power to, so you can start feeling unstoppable again.
Letting other people dictate how to live your life.
It’s crazy how a lot of people stop themselves from being happy by listening to other people than to what their hearts truly desire.
I’m not talking about being an inconsiderate bitch where you always think about your wants and needs only. I’m talking about constantly asking for approval or permission from others.
I’m talking about giving in to bullies, allowing your parents and other people to dictate what path you should take, allowing others’ opinions, judgments and limiting beliefs get to you, waiting for others to make you happy when you can totally do it yourself, allowing your partner to have control over you, and many other ways.
How about this: let’s fast forward to the future and think about yourself as a 90 year old on your death bed. Is she going to be at peace and happy knowing that she lived her life to the fullest by following her hearts’ desires no matter what other people thought about her, or is she feeling so much regret because she let other people dictate how to live her life?
You and you alone are responsible for your happiness. Make sure you follow your heart, not others. This is YOUR life after all.
Giving your power to your fears stop you from experiencing the best things in your life.
The most amazing things happen the moment you face your fears. Think about it. Writing a book, creating art to show the world, quitting your job to pursue what you truly love, starting a business, public speaking, auditioning for a role, creating a blog/youtube channel/podcast – these things are TERRIFYING. But when you face them, you unlock amazing things.
Don’t let fear stop you from experiencing your highest potential. Step into your true power and start living a bolder life.
Any attachment you have (anything you think you NEED)
A lot of people are powerless because they are attached to certain things and in result, they let it control their life.
I used to be so attached to everything – to my relationships, to money, to the outcomes of my plans, to the thought of what other people will say about me, to food, and so many other things.
And then one day, everything was taken away from me, and I felt so powerless without them. But one day, I realized that this happened to me so I can reclaim my true power within – and that’s when I discovered how powerful I truly am even without these things to validate me.
What are you attached to, and how is it ruining your happiness?
A lot of us give too much power to our past that it fully controls how our future is going to be.
Here’s something to remember: The point of power is always in the present moment. This means that you totally have the power to create a new future for yourself by using this present moment to do better and bolder things. This is an opportunity to do things out of integrity and good intentions.
Giving power too much on your past will only limit what’s possible for you in the future. It’s time to stop looking back and start creating a more beautiful story.
There are 2 entities inside you: your higher self and your ego. And to live a great life is to allow your higher self to always take the lead.
Most people are functioning with their ego that’s why the world is the way it is now.
Here’s what the ego wants you to do: she wants you to play the victim. She wants you to compare yourself to others. She wants you to always have limiting beliefs and think negative thoughts.
But your higher self knows true wisdom. She knows your infinite potential and she knows what’s possible for you. She’s always functioning in a space of abundance and love. This is why you should give more power to your higher self than your ego.
Your higher self is always the best entity to drive your life.
Magic happens when you start owning your power and never give it away. For one, you will become unstoppable. And amazing things will be waiting for you. Would you like that?
