Tap your personal power – what’s this about? Well, do you know just how strong you are? What about how strong you think you are? We all have something unique about us, and this to some extent, is untapped personal power. Tapping into that and allow us to extend our boundaries.
Tap Your Personal Power
Personal power is, well, very powerful! It’s not just about outward success, although this could be a part of it, it’s about confidence, happiness and self-improvement. We can also use our personal power to act like a rock, unbowed by everything that buffets at us from the world we live in. Here are a few thoughts on how you might tap your personal power:
Be Conscious and Aware
There are two parts to the mind, the conscious mind, and the unconscious mind. The conscious mind is what we think about whenever we are aware. These are the random thoughts that we happen to have throughout the day, and the things that we need to focus our attention on. However, we also have the unconscious mind which is where 90% of our thoughts live, and they are played back to us like a tape.
Think about something simple you do, like cleaning the house or taking a shower. You know exactly what to do whenever you do those basic things because you’ve done them enough times to where they become automatic. The subconscious mind holds our routines, our daily habits, and our internal belief systems. We spend more time on autopilot than we think, and it’s often because we don’t let our conscious mind take control.
Now, one of the best ways to get our personal power is to be more aware of our thoughts and actions. We can’t be 100% aware all the time, but whenever we find ourselves repeating an action, we can take a look at that action and try to understand why we are doing it.
Meditation is often the best way for the brain to do this, as it allows us to sit still and engage our subconscious mind, and then we can become the master of a situation rather than a victim to the way we’ve always done things.
Looking At Personal Power
What do you do whenever you need to make a hard choice? Do you dawdle at the starting line, thinking about all the other hard choices you made before without getting any results? Do you experience an emotion like guilt, anger, or frustration over all the choices that failed you in the past?
Well, that’s your subconscious mind dredging up past events to mess with you. However, if you want to handle these hard choices with personal power, you need to do the following.
Make the conscious choice to start by asking yourself one question: Will this choice help me achieve my goals? If yes, then take steps to take it. Tap into your personal power and get started with making the right call and see what that choice can do for you. Personal power allows you to dive headfirst into something and then see what can be done with it.
Gaining A New Perspective
One of the best benefits of getting tapped into your personal power is the new perspective that it gives to your life. You are able to look at things that you once did automatically or things that were once done because you were afraid, with a brand new lease on life.
That power will flow out and start to touch all other areas of your life, and then you can get started with using your personal power to advance your life and the lives of others.
