3 Powers You Have That You Should Be Using
Like you have no control of your own life? Sometimes it feels like no matter what you do, something or someone is there to stop you.
Life can be really discouraging when you feel like you have no control. But I have a secret for you. You have the power. I know, I know. It is hard to believe. Take a second and let that sink in.
You have the power.
Believe it. You might be thinking that you don’t, and I get that. Sometimes things look out of your control, but those are just circumstances. You might feel discouraged by your surroundings. You might be overwhelmed. Maybe the people around you are bringing you down, or you feel like no one believes in you. But those circumstances are not in control…you are. I know they can be painful and they probably really suck. It sucked when I had to go clean houses with my mom as a kid because we didn’t have any money. But they can’t stop you from success. These things can test us and challenge us, but you decide whether they break you or make you.
You get to decide what will break you or make you!
The choice is yours. We don’t always get to decide what happens in our lives (I still haven’t found a “make it all easier” button, trust me, I’ve looked) but you do get decide how you deal with it. At first I was pissed that I had to work when my friends didn’t, but eventually (after a lot of complaining) I realized that only I could control how I handled it. I could be pissed and make my own life miserable, or I could sing and laugh and get over it. Whatever you are going through might not be your fault, but it is up to you to take control and make your life awesome. You have that power.
Things aren’t always easy, but they are all possible. Take action, be stubborn, go crazy. Don’t settle for unhappiness. Take control of your life!
3 Powers I Realized We All Have
The Power of Words:
We get to decide what comes out of our mouths. We have the power to lie, tear people down, and tear ourselves down. But that means we have the power to speak the truth. We have the power to encourage people. We have the power to speak about how amazing we are. And if you don’t want to be that weirdo that talks out loud to themselves (like me…) then you can THINK about how amazing you are.
The Power to Not Accept Words:
Have you heard the saying “sticks and stones will break my bones but words will never hurt me”? It is true, words can never physically hurt you but they can break you down emotionally. I remember when my own family members told me that I wasn’t good enough. Have you ever heard something negative like that and started to question if it was true? I have been hurt by words, sometimes I even believed them. We suck up words, good or bad, like a sponge. But we need to know who we are and what we are. We are NOT those negative words. You DO NOT need to let those words sink in. If they don’t taste good, then spit them right out. Negative words cannot bring you down if you don’t accept them or give them any power. You have the power, not the words.
The Power to Believe in Who You Are:
It doesn’t matter what people say about you, where you live, who your parents are, or who your friends are. You have the power to believe in yourself. It is that simple. You need to know that you are amazing and nothing can change that. Other people shouldn’t control how you see yourself. You control how you see yourself, so make sure you look at your greatness. You have the power to believe in yourself…so believe.
