Mama, I get it, sometimes we feel disempowered and well, there are ways to get past that, here’s three:
Challenge your limiting beliefs and fears.
The most difficult thing about perceptions is that they appear to be undeniable truth in your own mind. For example, you may have held a belief for years that you’re not good at a particular task or activity, but when you begin to explore that “truth” later, you realize that you never gave it your full effort or didn’t allow time to fully master it. Once you do, you realize that you’re capable of much more than you ever suspected! In order to fully empower yourself, get into the habit of questioning and challenging any limiting beliefs, fears, and doubts that come up about you or your capabilities. Are they really true? Why do you think so? Have you ever tried to prove them wrong? By asking questions like this and being willing to expand your perceptions, you quickly realize that you are the only one holding yourself back!
Affirm your strengths and capabilities frequently.
Along with disempowerment usually comes a belief that you’re weak and powerless, which is simply another perception! Begin changing the perception by affirming frequently that you are strong, powerful, talented and capable. Build up yourself with encouraging word and thoughts and you’ll begin to believe in yourself more and more each day. Over time, this belief continues to grow and you’ll be able to do things you never would have believed you were capable of before.
Feeling disempowered usually causes you to hold back on taking action, either because you’re frightened, or because you believe it’s futile to try to change anything. Your first impulse might be to wait until you’re feeling stronger before you take action, but did you know that taking action can make you feel stronger? That’s right! Taking action can and will empower you.
