Be Motivated Series: Using Your Personal Power by LaShawn Sithole

Welcome Back! I hope that you are enjoying this 30 Day Challenge as much as I am. 

Here are some memorable quotes for today’s topic on personal power and the courage needed.

"Whatever you do, you need courage. Whatever course you decide upon, there is always someone to tell you that you are wrong. 

There are always difficulties arising that tempt you to believe your critics are right. To map out a course of action and follow it to an end requires some of the same courage that a soldier needs. Peace has its victories, but it takes brave men and women to win them." ~Ralph Waldo Emerson

“It takes a lot of courage to release the familiar and seemingly secure, to embrace the new. But there is no real security in what is no longer meaningful. There is more security in the adventurous and exciting, for in movement there is life, and in change there is power." ~Alan Cohen

"Cautious, careful people, always casting about to preserve their reputation and social standing, never can bring about a reform. Those who are really in earnest must be willing to be anything or nothing in the world's estimation, and publicly and privately, in season and out, avow their sympathy with despised and persecuted ideas and their advocates, and bear the consequences." ~Susan B. Anthony

"If we truly want to create a life that is grounded in basic well-being, we must decide to commit ourselves to learning what it takes to thrive instead of merely survive.” Susan Velasquez, Beyond Intellect Journey into the Wisdom of Your Intuitive Mind, Page 11.

"Limited goals create limited lives. So stretch yourself as far as you want in setting your goals. You need to decide what you want, because that’s the only way you can expect to get it." –Tony Robbins

Here are five suggestions from Tony Robbins in his book, Unlimited Power  for formulating your outcomes:

1. State your outcome in positive terms. Say what you want to happen. Too often, people state what they don’t want to happen as their goals.

2. Be as specific as possible. How does your outcome look, sound, feel, smell? Engage all of your senses in describing the results you want. The more sensory rich your description, the more you will empower your brain to create your desire. Also be certain to set a specific completion date and/or term.

3. Have an evidence procedure. Know how you will look, how you will feel, and what you will see and hear in your external world after you have achieved your outcome. If you don’t know you’ll know when you’ve achieved your goal, you may already have it. You can be winning and feel like you’re losing if you don’t keep score.

4. Be in control. Your outcome must be initiated and maintained by you. If must not be dependent upon other people having to change themselves for you to be happy. Make sure your outcome reflects things that you can affect directly.

5. Verify that your outcome is ecologically sound and desirable. Project into the future the consequences of your actual goal. Your outcome must be one that benefits you and other people.
