Empowerment comes from within and is often cultivated by self assurance. To be empowered is to feel free. That is when people do their best work with the potential to succeed at anything.

What does being empowered mean and how how does a person know if they are empowered?

Here some characteristics…  Someone who:

  1. has control over his/her own destiny.
  2. understands self in relation to others.
  3. Knows there are always choices and has the power to choose.
  4. does not feel victimized either by people, circumstances, or systems.
  5. is confident in one’s own ability to make sound decisions.
  6. is not concerned with going against prevailing opinion even in the face of possible personal loss.
  7. has confidence to stick with one’s own convictions even when one must appear weak.
  8. has a center that is without confusion.
  9. emanates calm in the midst of confusion or pain.
  10. exhibits strength of character. Puts one’s personal integrity and the integrity of the organization above personal preference or gain.
  11. acknowledges that leadership is a responsibility given only to a few, and desires to contribute and serve others.

You are the only one holding yourself back.  So give yourself the gift and be empowered.
