Stay in Your Power

At all times, we have the right and the freedom to determine what is important in our lives. We also have the freedom to focus our time, energy, and efforts on those things. 

The challenge is that far too often we do not take the time to determine what is important. Then we spend a majority of our life and time doing what we think we must do, have to do, need to do
. Iyanla

Someone told me that they were intimidated by a friend of mine, I must admit I was a tad bit shocked. I wanted to find out more as to why someone who can be considered her contemporary would intimidate her. So I asked after saying - never let anyone intimidate you! She responded that it was the job that the person held. Oh dear me, someone's position would intimidate you, and you knew the person before they had that job?

I was quite amazed!

We get to chose who and what we place importance on

We may choose this deliberately or unconsciously, the beauty about life is that it always gives us feedback through how we live

If the choice is unconscious it will still reflect through our lives.

We get to choose what we focus on

Declaring intimidation and helplessness is giving away our power. 

Spend some time in your own power, making your own choices, knowing exactly what is important to you and your life will reflect that!
