Power is a favourite term to many people on earth. While not all of them wish to have some sort of special force or ability as their power, some do think power is something the way to create the world they want.
Here are some misconceptions about power:-
⦁ Power can help you stay at the top
⦁ Power can me you to be more superior than others
⦁ Power is given only to the rich people
⦁ Power is a way for me to control others
Those are not the power we are talking about. When it comes to power, it is truly your ability to create the world you want.
If you have strong power, you can choose the kind of life you want to live. When your power is weak, it can be pretty hard to satisfy your needs and wants.
True power does not impose fear or negative values over others. With power, you realize that your life is in your hand and it is up to you how you want it to be. When have strong power, you are not a victim.
The Key to Achieving Goals that Matters to You
You can’t have power unless you accept total responsibility for your life. You are responsible for the accumulated debt. If your room is dirty, it is your responsibility to clean up. You may think it is your maid’s responsibility, but you still have to give her the order to do so. Hence the responsibility is still yours.
This is the fuel of power. The amazing thing about human is that, they are able to desire, want and dream about the kind of lives they want to live. What do you always dream about? What are your desires? What do you long to see? Give some space to yourself to dream and you will be amazed with power you in your hand to make them come true.
Are you determined to bring your dreams and desires to pass? Often, people around you won’t understand how bad you want your dreams to come true. Even so, would you allow them to step on your way and stop making decisions that get you to move towards your dreams? Seriously, you don’t need their permission to live the life of your dream. You are responsible for your dreams and they are not.
How many of you still keep your New Year resolutions at the sixth month of each year? You may have an inspiring list of resolutions at the beginning of the year but are you still able to stay focused on track with your goals for the year? Many people do not achieve what they want simply because they lose focus. They don’t even remember what they want to achieve for the year. This shouldn’t be the case for you.
Dream is powerful but dream without action is dead. You must take consistent action in order to produce consistent result. If you want to increase sales for your company, you must make effort to invest in advertising. If you want to look good in shape, you must sign up for the gym membership and make sure you go twice or thrice a week.
I suppose nobody likes the word ‘discipline’ but nevertheless it is an essential attribute we can’t live without. It helps us to stay on track and if we were to go with the flow, the tendency of not achieving anything is pretty high.
The Hindrances of Power
When you timid, you don’t see yourself as important as others are. Even when you have big dreams, but you don’t think you have got what it takes to make it happen. In reality, you are much more powerful than you think you are that you are turning your own strength against yourself. This is when power is use inappropriately.
Now you are confused. You have desires, but at the same time you also have fears. Cowardice is a practice which you use to feed your fear more than your desire. Always remember this, whatever you feed it will grow. So choose to feed your healthy desires rather than fears.
Power is not evil. Many decent and nice people on earth think that you should live a normal and problem-free life in order to avoid anything bad from happening to you. Just get a steady job and income. Don’t even dream about doing business. It is risky. Nice people but not so nice to impart values to others.
How to Build Power?
One way to build power is to have progressive training. With progressive training, you place yourself in a situation where the challenge seems new and big to you. Make an attempt to tackle it with your ability. Even if you fail, it is okay because through the experience, you have definitely learned something from it. If you never run on a treadmill before, you can start by walking at the speed you are comfortable with. Increase the speed even up to the point of running over the next few weeks. When you look back, you will be surprised with your own performance.
Master the First Hour:
Start you’re the first hour of your day with productive tasks such as reading, planning, cleaning or exercising. If you squander the first hour of your day the moment you wake up, you are likely to be less productive.
Needless to say, watching TV at the first hour is a ‘NO’!
Every salesperson on earth has quotas to meet every month. If you can, adopt their behavior and set personal quotas on yourself. It may not necessarily be your sales target, but quotas like finish reading 2 personal development books in a month can be helpful in creating power.
I was taught to tackle the most difficult task of the day first. Imagine when you have both small stones and big stones that need to be put in a bowl. When you put in the small stones, you will not have enough room for the big stones in the bowl later. However, if you put the big stones in the bow first,
you will still have enough space for the tiny little stones. Simple illustration but nothing can be further from the truth.
It is common to dislike competition, but the world needs competition to be better. Businesses are good examples. They will try all sorts of ways to improve the values of their products and services in order to beat others in the competition. In the same way, how can you be better by competing with others?
Machines need to be maintained and human beings need to rest. Rest can help you to walk further distance and its meaning is far from being lazy. Rest whenever you can and you know what, many Eureka moments happen during rest.
