How to Get Your Power Back
Discover Real Power in Your Life
Every time you lose control to anger, fear, jealousy and rage, you allow those feelings to have power over you. When you allow yourself to feel those emotions, instead of just "acting out," you can start to recreate authentic power.
Creating Authentic Power
Step One: Whenever you are feeling a painful feeling, stop and become aware of what you are feeling.
Step Two: Remind yourself that the thoughts and feelings you're experiencing are coming from a part of you that's frightened by the thought that you're not good enough.
Step Three: Ask yourself: "Do I want my decisions to be made by a part of me that is frightened?"
Step Four: Ask yourself: "What would I do in this situation if I were compassionate and wise?"
There is learning potential in every decision you make, as well as consequences. You must accept the responsibility for every one of your decisions.
