You are powerful in this moment, right NOW. If you don’t feel powerful, it is because you are not looking in the right place. Maybe you have been looking outside of you, but the truth is that nothing external can ever give you power. You must look within. Your power is inside of you.

If you don’t feel powerful it is because you have outsourced your power. How have you outsourced your power? You have outsourced your power when you make other people responsible for how you feel.

But just as simply as you outsourced it, you can take back your power. Instead of pointing the finger and blaming others for how you feel, take 100% responsibility for your 50%. Even when someone says or does something hurtful toward you, that is just a reflection of them, not a reflection of you. Take back your power and decide how you are going to respond. You cannot control the actions of others but you can control your response.

Taking back your power is about loving yourself. When you love yourself so much, you will never give others the power to hurt you or make you feel a certain way. Love yourself and take back your power today!
