The Merriam-Webster Dictionary defines empowerment as follows: “Empowerment: to promote the self-actualization or influence of”
Empowerment is a key element in success for several reasons. First and foremost, you must empower yourself. How can you take the risks that are required in transforming your life if you are not empowered? The simple answer is that you can’t! The very essence of the word “empowerment” is to “promote the self-actualization of.” So what you must do is this. Promote the self-actualization of YOU. What is self-actualization? If we dissect the word, we have “self,” meaning YOU and “actualization.” The word “actualization” is defined as “materialization or realization.” So when we put it all together, empowerment means to “realize or materialize” our true selves! Simply put, empowerment is to become who you truly are. We have already spoken about the value of visualization. So now that you have visualized yourself in your new life, you must now step into it and claim it. We know from our studies of the Law of Attraction that the good you seek is going to come to you. You must be ready and able to claim it – to step into your power, to realize and materialize your true self – when opportunities avail themselves to you.
Now, my fellow Seekers, you have some handy tools for Life’s Toolbox. Remember that all of your hopes and dreams for yourself are little pieces of divine inspiration, just crying to get out and express themselves – beautifully, meaningfully, and lovingly. Never feel guilty about wanting excellence. Never feel like you are not enough. Affirm that you are a light of the world. You owe it to the world and to yourself to self-actualize! To become the person that you truly are!
Shine your light radiantly.
