Power is authority to make decisions. It’s the ability to influence others to complete a desired action. What makes someone powerful? and what comes along with it?
Power is having the resources. Whether money, materials or man-power; having wealth or being wealthy can be classified as power.
Power is influence. It’s the ability to convince others even against their will. People will follow powerful people and their ideas because they do not have confidence in their own ability.
Power is an attitude. Power is not weeping, not complaining and refusing to feel hopeless. Power is having control over your thoughts and emotions always being able to act in the most logical of manners.
Power gets recognized. Whether you actually have the resources or not if you display confidence no one would be the wiser. People who act with confidence and are more challenge oriented versus those who complain will always make a great impression.
Having resources is important which is why money is power but after money attitude is everything. With the proper attitude the resources can be achieved. Remember to have a rich attitude – be vision-oriented, positive and calm in the face of any challenge. Develop healthy habits and read, your mental and physical capabilities can be your greatest resource if developed correctly.
Of course there are other factors that influence power but these factors we can’t always change. Having beauty or being beautiful is always a sure sign of power. People are easily influenced by beautiful people as they become insecure in their presence. Another factor could include a person’s family status or family reputation.
Power is better earned than it is given. Power without wisdom can be dangerous. Individuals who are not fully aware of power will often abuse it when in their grasp. Their ego will take a beating until they are humbled by the experience.
Mind power is everything. The ability to read is power. The ability to process and decipher new information is power. The ability to rise above our circumstances is power. The ability to lead is power.
Power is control and feeling in control is beautiful. Feeling in control is what grants us everlasting happiness. Being able to sustain ourselves and build a strong reputation for the future opens many doors to the future. Having these options is power.
Just remember if you don’t feel powerful or in control at this very moment that the one thing you can always control is your attitude. Remember to think logically not emotionally, don’t let your emotions get the best of you. Be confident and accept life as a challenge. Let your positive attitude shine on the world around you. Embrace your passions and live life to the fullest.
Willpower will determine your financial bottom line. When we let our emotions get the best of us we develop self-inflicting habits. Whether these habits are excessive gaming, eating, gambling or drugs they will greatly destroy your self-esteem and ultimately wreck havoc on your influence on others. Again, think logically, we all have underlying root issues to these concerns which are more often then not disregarded. Make amends for your wrong doings of the past and begin to live in the now. We cannot change the past we can only act in the current situation, so its time to start living. Don’t let lack of willpower define you. Love yourself, find your grit and smile along the way.
