Do You Realize How Powerful You Are?

Written by Anthony Meindl

Do you realize how powerful you are? How you can become actualized in your life in a way that empowers yourself and others?

As you become more and more self-actualized (which is really self-empowerment) you move from a preponderance of insignificant upsets, distractions and nuisances in your life to greater accomplishments.

You stop spending time with people who drain your energy. You stop killing time doing things that . . . well . . . kill time. You stop complaining and gossiping and getting caught up in petty aggravations.

You start feeling better. You have more energy. You give up the drama. You contribute more. Become more impactful. Make a difference. Have more fun. Show up in your life in a new way.

And have you noticed that as you start tapping into this reservoir of empowerment that lies within each of us, many of those people who used to distract you from being your best self start to fall away? You stop hanging out with them. They magically stop calling you. You meet new people who inspire you and encourage you to be your best self.

And isn’t that what we’re all after? To be our best self? 

Our potential – how empowered we can each be – is the largest bulk of what makes up our being. This is your best self.

It’s analogous to water.

Our bodies are made up of 75% of it. You possess the same powerful properties. You are transformative, expansive, fluid, resilient.

Water is a conductor.

Start conducting! Become the conductor of your own life.

Channel this expansive power you possess into things that serve you. Inspire you. Delight you.

You’re never going to conduct the left brain. Ever. It’s got its own discordant symphony going on in there and it’s mostly loud, off-key, distracting noise.

But you can learn to minimize it.

Try this week. How? Don’t judge yourself for one day.

That’s a way to start.

“Brick wall, waterfall man u think u got it all But u don’t, I do, so boom with that attitude; Peace punch Cap’n Crunch I got something u can’t touch Bing bang choo choo train wind me up I do my thing; Reese’s Pieces 7 Up don’t mess with me I’m going Up, Up, Up!”
