I’m all about empowering women from within. It’s always okay to ask for advise and help,never be afraid to do that. But it’s empowering to be able to know and control yourself from within. That is what my mission is, to empower people, women and young adults. To give you the tools of how to approach certain life decision without having to look for approval elsewhere or continuously questioning yourself, “am I doing this right?”.
In my coaching practice we go over various techniques and adopt self empowering tools of how to empower yourself daily. Life is uncertain and challenging, sometimes leaving us helpless and lacking serious motivation which may be very frustrating. This is inevitable but by putting in daily effort to grow and empower yourself you can equip yourself for those challenging moments that we all go through from time to time.
Here are some tips on how to empower yourself daily:
- Love yourself :
Yes, you read right. LOVE YOURSELF. How can you expect anyone else to love you if you don’t love yourself. Set the standard, show yourself love everyday and be loved. Start with the simple things like treating yourself to a candle light bubble bath, having 20 minutes of “me time”, be kind to yourself…..Speak to yourself as you would to a loved one. Practice self-love regularly and write down the things that you love about yourself to help you get started, you can also go back and read it to remind yourself that you are worthy when you’re feeling down. By showing yourself self-love will reflect in your subconscious mind and enhance confidence level.
Start a gratitude journal:
Start your day with an attitude of gratitude. It is so easy to fall into the trap of “I want more”. We aspire to do better and be better all the time. But in order to grow further we need to remember what we have already accomplished. What we are already blessed with. Go back to basics , you have hot coffee in the morning, a warm bed, breakfast, you can enjoy a hot shower and drive yourself to work…..it humbles you and truly gives you an attitude of gratitude. With this mindset you will attract even more good because nothing will go unnoticed or be taken for granted.
Be aware of distractions:
Today’s world is designed to distract us, from various social media posts to television, the virtual world is taking over and narrowing our thought process. We can so easily get sucked into it and lose so much valuable time. For example set times and limits for when you log onto social media, this can be your “tea break time”. Stay focused on your passions, set a focus of the day task and try to remind yourself of it every hour. Do meditation, divide your time into smaller intervals with a pre-planned schedule and work at it as if it’s the last day you have to finish that task.
Get out of your comfort zone:
Learn to get comfortable with being uncomfortable, thats the only time true growth and change can happen. By practicing the feeling of being uncomfortable you can train your brain to adapt more easily to sudden challenges or change and to spot an opportunity when it arises.
Understand the mindset of people:
Socialize with people as much as you can, talk less and listen more.This will make you “people smart”. Observe and learn from a variety of people, socialize with people that you aspire to become and also with people you wouldn’t ordinarily be drawn to. You would be surprised at what you can learn about the mindset of people by observing their behavior and traits. This will empower you by enhancing you communication skills and give you a greater understanding of how to deal with different people in more challenging times.
Aspire to learn something new everyday:
Like any other muscle we forget that we also need to flex our brain muscle. If photography has interested you or learning how to paint or draw, then find sometime once or twice a week to acquire the new knowledge. By flexing that brain muscle to learn new information you also keep it on it’s toes to stay young, sharp and active for when you need it. In this day in age we need to learn something new on at least a yearly basis, from high-tech software to novel ways of approaching business, marketing and people. It is vital to keep your brain on it’s toes.
By working on bettering and understanding yourself daily you empower YOURSELF. This is your life, take care of it and don’t let anyone or any situation let you take it for granted.
Today may not be a good day but tomorrow may be a great day. Never give up on yourself.
