Being A Winner





you can, you should, and if you’re brave enough to start, you will.”
Stephen King

Empowerment is the belief that we have the ability to control and direct the course of our life. People who do not feel empowered may have low self-esteem, feel unmotivated to go after goals and stop working toward happiness in their lives.


We can empower our self by;


Building self-appreciation. Self-esteem that is based on external achievements does not last! Start by taking a personal inventory of your good qualities. Often, what we dislike about ourselves, blinds us to our great attributes. Become aware of yours by looking for them (ask loved ones for suggestions) and writing them down just to impress yourself. Read it often to let them sink-in to your consciousness to help you value yourself more. Like any skill, self-appreciation needs regular practice.


Take responsibility for your thoughts. It is your choice to allow criticism from others to be your perception of who you are. Allowing criticism from others to rule your thoughts as a negative effect in your behaviour. Remember Eleanor Roosevelt’s wise words – “Nobody can make you feel inferior without your permission.” You can choose to brush off criticism and feel good about yourself.


Be consciously kinder to yourself. The more you do for you, the better you will feel. It helps you focus on you and believe that you deserve good. Give yourself a break when you are tired. Remember to pamper yourself, take a long, hot bath and relax. Self-kindness can blossom into self love from which self-empowerment can grow.

Take a daily walk or bike ride. Exercise helps raise the good endorphins boosting your mood. Choose something you will enjoy so you will want to do it regularly and clearly see progress from your efforts. When you know that you can do something well, this also helps boost confidence.


No one is born feeling self-empowered, it is developed. Remember, we are essentially who we create our self to be and all that occurs in our life is the result of our own making.

Remember, no one is born feeling self-empowered. Confidence is learned. Everyone has fears and insecurities. But, some create a confident facade. Nobody feels perfect but some of us magnify our flaws more than others. You can empower yourself, step by step, with commitment and determination. Start today move towards becoming self-empowered and to win your game
