Week 27 – Regaining Your Personal Power


As a Certified Executive Coach, I help individuals who want to thrive personally and organizations who want to maximize their successes.  Individuals want to successfully manage the transitions of life and achieve peak performance while organizations want to maximize their potential and achieve their strategic objectives. They call on me to help them discover and then design the changes required to implement pragmatic and sustainable solutions that help them direct the success they want.

Inkiesta, pronounced “in-key-es-ta” is an Italian word meaning “journey”.

Last week we looked at how it is that we lose personal power. This week let’s take a look at strategies to reclaim personal power? It’s all in the choices you make. By making choices that contribute to your growth and make you feel good about yourself, you’ll feel more empowered. There are many ways to increase your personal power and feel good at the same time.

• Be gentle to yourself as you make small steps to move beyond your fears. This will help you move from feeling like a victim to finding and implementing solutions to your problems.
• Trust your instincts. They are often more accurate than your intellect.
• Never compromise your principles and values, see no matter what your emotions tell you.
• Pay attention to your inner dialogue and remove any negative self-talk. Replace that inner dialogue with positive affirmations.
• Learn from your setbacks to rebuild your personal power.
• Create a clear vision for your life and you’ll enhance your personal power.
• Use your creativity to create possibilities that are aligned with your vision. They will give you focus and energy and you’ll feel empowered.

Regaining your personal power is critical to move forward positively. Life is a journey that is filled with bumps along the way. You mustn’t let those challenges destroy your personal power. Let your authenticity shine through. It will empower your soul and help you feel more powerful.
