Personal empowerment is the ability to take control of your own life. This is more than being capable of doing so.
To truly empower yourself, you must set clear goals that will help you identify your goals. Then take steps to reach those goals.
People who don’t feel empowered are more likely to lose control of their actions. Others make their decisions for them, whether it’s spouses, partners, children, managers, or colleagues. They are often unsure of their abilities and rely on others. These patterns can be broken by improving self-awareness, and then self confidence.
What is Personal Empowerment?
Basically, empowerment simply refers to ‘becoming strong’. Personal empowerment means that you are in control of your life and don’t allow others to do so.
Although it sounds easy, controlling your environment can be difficult.
To understand your strengths and limitations, you need to increase your self-awareness. Understanding your goals and how they differ from your current situation is also essential. You may need to modify your behavior, as well as your deepest values and beliefs in order to achieve your goals.
