In this post I am going to be explaining to you what personal power is, why it’s important to have, how to create personal power and what book about personal power I recommend reading.
So without further ado, let’s get right into things…
What is personal power
Personal power is the ability to control your self, to be a master of your thoughts and emotions, to master your psychology and to have a powerful influence on the environment around you in the most positive way.
There seems to be different levels of personal power in different people. You know which sort people have more power than others because you can sense the energy in these people, you can tell by their behaviors and attitudes of mind.
Lets take a look at the probability of two peoples lives.
One with the power and one without it.
Before we go through this, please understand that I am NOT making any judgments here, I am merely stating facts based on the different types of people.
The person with the power will probably have a very calm and confident attitude towards life.
He/she will not stress out over the little things. They will probably not suffer from any mental health issues as they have so much self control.
Their health is probably going to be in a great condition because if they have power, they will be very conscious of what they’re eating and will have a strong foundation of healthy foods and regular exercise.
Let’s take a look at the person who doesn’t have any power in life.
Well as you know, it’s going to be pretty obvious now after sharing the opposite type of person who is in full control of their minds.
So for the person who isn’t in control of their minds, they will probably have a very low self esteem, a lot of anxiety, fear, depression, stress regret, judgement, hatred, pity, frustration, anger etc.
They will probably be pretty unhealthy because of their lack of inspiration and motivation to exercise and eat well.
He/she will probably be involved in unhealthy habits such as eating junk food, smoking, drinking, negativity, repetitive and useless thinking, judging others, drugs etc.
They will probably not have very stable and long lasting relationships with other people because there isn’t much self awareness in this person and that means not much personal control.
Last but not least, this person isn’t probably going to have much peace of mind and ambition in life.
How to create personal power
Focusing on the most positive outcome
There are a few ways to create it, first off let me give you one of my favorite ways.
We are normally trained to think about problems, or imagining the worst possible outcome… yet do we ever question if focusing on the negative actually serves us?
Well, I’m sure that if we did question it, then we wouldn’t consciously allow ourselves to dwell on the worst case scenarios.
So why don’t we question it? We don’t question it because we are not conscious, we are asleep and are allowing our unconscious mind to make decisions for us.
Hence the more we focus on the negative, the more of it we create in our minds and lives… basically it becomes an automatic behavior = habit.
So here’s the solution, from now on instead of thinking about what could go wrong, imagine the best case scenario happening. See it in your mind, really feel it until your emotions kick in.
This is a very empowering thing to do! Whenever we have negative thoughts and emotions, it drains our vital energy and puts is in a low state.
Create a habit of focusing on what could go right for you in your mind, you will feel full of powerful, positive energy… you will love this feeling!
This is just one way you can create personal power.
I got this technique from a guy called Brendon Burchard.
Another way we create personal power is through forgiveness, yes this really is a way for you to produce amazing power.
How can forgiveness give you power, you might ask? Well when we do not forgive ourselves or others we are actually adding to our suffering and creating more of it.
Nothing of benefit can come to us if we are not willing to forgive others or ourselves. Non-forgiveness is a truly weak state of mind.
The relief that you will experience when you forgive yourself or another person will be indescribable, especially if you’ve been holding onto to grievances, resentment for a long while.
It will be like letting go of a boiling hot rock that you’ve been gripping onto for years.
Imagine the personal power you will have when you learn to forgive.
Please forgive, you will only be hurting yourself if not.
By practicing the art of acceptance, you can really achieve personal power. When we do not accept things… be it people, ourselves, situations, events, thoughts, emotions, the past etc, we struggle to be effective in the world and we also struggle psychologically.
The truth is resistance or non-acceptance cuts you off from your true power, it keeps you stuck in suffering.
A good question to ask yourself frequently is this: “Am I accepting what is?”
When you accept what is, nothing can be a problem for you and as nothing can be a problem, you do not give any power away.
What do I recommend reading?
There is a book I recommend reading which is called Unlimited Power by Anthony Robbins
It’s about reclaiming your power by having the ability to take action and follow through on what you desire.
To take an idea and transform it into reality.
You can read some high quality reviews about the book over at Amazon.com
So if you desire personal power I really suggest you put to practice, the ways in which I’ve mentioned in this post and check out the book I just recommend for you.
Just so you don’t forget the key principles to create personal power – here they are again:
- Focusing on the most positive outcome instead of negative outcomes
Like everything in life, everything worthwhile takes consistency and persistence.
Keep practicing these three things and before long you will have an amazing sense of control in your life.
The book will give you other valuable information about goal setting, discipline, life purpose etc.
