The Power Within
Life is beautiful! Life is great! Life is just too awesome….until things don’t work out as planned. Until no one takes notice of your efforts. Until no matter what you try, you just can’t seem to get it right. Then life is not so awesome…or so you may think. It is during these challenging and trying times that compel others to throw in the towel and yet the same circumstances propel others to new levels. Why is it that others seem to do better than others given the same situation? How is it that the same boiling water makes an egg hard and a carrot soft? We all have our share of unpleasant circumstances whether it’s an issue at work, a marital challenge, a friendship hiccup or a child’s unruly behaviour. There is however a distinct phenomenon that separates the winners from the quitters, an occurrence that differentiates between the high achievers and the not so high achievers. The secret is in how you respond to life’s trying moments. It is in your willingness to allow a condition to drive you to search within for wisdom, tools and solutions. We all have great ability to overcome and emerge victorious irrespective of the challenge or its magnitude. The main focus is to discover, channel and unleash The Power Within. Discover the power that lies in you. Come to realize and understand that you are more than capable of conquering any giant before you. If you can take a moment to look back into your life, you will realize there are quite a number of obstacles that seemed impossible to overcome and yet you rose above the tempest. The very step that moves you into new levels in life is to discover the power to overcome. Once you are aware of your strengths, you need to channel your power. Power undirected is chaotic mainly because power has the ability to urge you to act. Action without proper thought may be more catastrophic than the initial predicament. When filled with the assurance that you are indeed a conqueror, you might find yourself being too busy doing with no results. You might fight the wrong fight. Discovering and channelling your power alone is not enough. You will need to unleash it to produce the desired results. That means taking a bold step to action what needs to be done to move your business forward. It means getting up to pick up the pieces of your life, begin the healing process and move on. It means acting on your decision to go and apologize and mend that relationship. It means finally acting on your courage to quit those destructive habits and replace them with empowering ones. It’s all in you, the power to climb that impossible mountain. It’s all possible, the ability to conquer your greatest fears. It’s embedded in you, the capability to rise up every time life knocks you down. It’s rooted in you, the aptitude to rise above the storm. It’s all in you, it is The Power Within You.
