Okay, I admit you don’t have the financial resources of Bill Gates, the political influence of President Obama, or the personal following of Oprah.
You are, however, the most powerful person in the world when it comes to creating the life you desire. You probably have far more capacity to change your life for the better than you are willing to admit.
Just for a moment, see yourself as the powerful person you are. Focus on your talents, the things you can do that others often struggle with. Consider your personal strengths – strengths like your ability to relate to others, your persistence and resilience, and your sense of humor. Reflect on your ability to access the talents and wisdom of your family, friends, and colleagues. Consider the value of the wisdom you have accumulated through the years.
When you see yourself as the powerful person you really are, do your anxieties fade while your confidence builds? From this place of confidence, consider how you can use all your resources to create the life you desire while enhancing the lives of your loved ones and helping to heal your corner of the world.
