“Our goals can only be reached through a vehicle of a plan, in which we must fervently believe, and upon which we must vigorously act. There is no other route to success.” ~ Vincent van Gogh
Striving for a life that is empowering and fulfilling is, for many of us difficult to achieve. With questions such as where to start, or what priorities you set, it may seem like just a dream. It’s not, and attaining the life you long for and deserve is definitely attainable.
Personal empowerment is absolutely attainable. With these five steps you begin your path towards actually attaining the fulfillment you are searching for.
1. Modify your way of thinking.
By eliminating, or at least reducing the negative self-talk we tend to engage in from time to time, you are taking one of the most powerful steps to leading a positive,
Respect and embrace yourself as the beautiful and unique you, with all your strengths and weaknesses. Combined with positive self-talk, this is the beginning of your new
empowered and fulfilling life.
2. Consider and understand the fact that you are a complete being.
Physical, mental, and emotional health, even spiritual health are all woven as intricately as a web to create one whole being—you. Any part of this web that becomes out of balance can result in your entire being becoming off balance. For example your health is affected if you are suffering from some sort of depression. If you are stressed about something, it will affect both your emotional and physical health. When you find yourself lacking in faith and confidence in your spiritual being, this too can affect both your emotional and physical health.
Strive for balance in all areas of your being in order to achieve fulfillment. To live a complete and balanced life you need to work towards good physical and emotional
or mental health, as well as seek spiritual guidance for spiritual health.
3. Remember to practice personal care.
When establishing your to do list you should be putting yourself first. This is not a selfish act, it happens to be quite selfless. The people around you will not be getting the very best from you if you are not happy and fulfilled. Begin choosing a little time every day to care for yourself so you can be happy and fulfilled, for both yourself and others.
Take part in some sort of physical exercise, eat healthy, meditate, laugh, and pray if that is something that brings you some form of spiritual contentment. Read a good book, relax in a bubble bath, or even go for a massage.
Your personal empowerment and fulfillment will benefit from these small bits of self care.
4. Try something different.
You probably have a list of things you have always wanted to do, or have thought about trying. Maybe it’s something on the extreme side, like skydiving or rock climbing, or a little more on the safe side such as needle crafts, cooking, or even financial management. When you become engaged in life and its many exciting options, self empowerment is right around the corner.
5. Discover and achieve your goals.
When you achieve something from your goals list, the feeling inside can be almost magical. You become filled with confidence and pride, and set on the path toward more
success in the future. Setting goals that are achievable yet challenging is the key to finding success. Take for example the person who wants to start their own business. By setting smaller goals, you will gradually be growing alongside your new business. Once you achieve any small goal you will find another right behind it, guiding you towards that one single long-term goal of a successful small business.
Personal empowerment begins by choosing the path and pursuing it. Once that choice is made, each small step you take will change the approach you have on life, and will become the largest impact on your way to personal fulfillment.
