S:1146 Principle: Giving Up Your Power

(Principles are basic truths that, when applied, cause success to come to you easier and quicker.)


At an event last night the speaker said – in an ‘of-course’ manner – “When you see yourself as a victim you give up your power.” As I pondered the significance of her dozen words I didn’t hear the next several sentences.

Everyone has inherent power. It’s personal, endemic, comes with the life package. Some think of power as a ‘bad’ thing and, when used for ‘bad’ things, it is. It’s not the power which is bad, it’s the application of it.

You, and I, have a tremendous amount of power at our fingertips.

Many people deny their power, suppress it, misuse it, withhold it, or in countless other ways, waste it.


Coaching Point: Do you own your power? How are you using it?
