“Self discovery is the stepping stone to an INPowering life. Seek, and you will find.”
Thoughts are things
Our thoughts shape our actions. We can program ourselves for INPowerment when we select what we will think about and how we will think about living our lives.
I hope these sayings and my audio commentary about them will help you become more INPowered at home, at work, and in your community.
Many do not get stronger because they backed off before the fatigue and failure hit, so they did not have the benefit of the failure. Anyone not willing to hurt is not willing to grow stronger.
The INPowered understand the value of acting with intent. Nothing is wasted. Nothing is capricious or haphazard. Action is both efficient and effective.
Chaos and order help to frame our lives. The push and pull of partners seeking the rhythm and flow of the dance of life.
Think of all the ways we set boundaries to establish the line between acceptable and unacceptable behavior. When we give our word, we are establishing a boundary.
As much as I am a go with the flow person, I do believe there is a difference between going with the flow and just winging it. I am the most effective when I plan my work and work my plan.
Reconciliation is the act of closing the gaps between people so they can rebuild a harmonious relationship. The aggrieved party is the only one who can grant the opportunity to reconcile.
A life reconciled is a life in balance. We have several life-ledgers that we keep an eye on in addition to our financial account. Every once in a while, and maybe too often, one or more of those accounts get out of balance, causing stress and anxiety.
Wholeness is a sense of being complete, unified. Every facet of our life is in sync. Body, mind, soul, and spirit. But, you know, there is no absolute standard for perfect wholeness.
The INPowered focus on our innate similarity, which allows us to see a world of joy, compassion, and dignity, and we commit to live and flourish and evolve in mutual respect and love.
Change brings uncertainty and dissonance. But change also bring with it the possibilities of a better way, once we tune in to the different vibrations.
When it’s time to stand your ground you also find out on which side you stand and what you are willing to risk in that cause.
The imagination is an amazing self-help therapy and can serve as an empathy-builder or a compassion-generator as we try to relate to the circumstances of others.
