A philosophical idea: I think to live the best life possible, we must seek to empower ourselves to the maximum possible extent — to maximize our energy, self-confidence, and inner-power.
What is inner power?
To me, inner power is this:
- Knowing you have the ability to change yourself, and change the world for the better.
- Having the physical strength to move a lot, interact with confidence, and to expend your energy with little fatigue.
- Creating things you desire —things which might exist in your mind.
How to cultivate your own inner power
With inner power, we can cultivate it within ourselves. Some ideas:
- Acknowledge your strengths and talents. No matter who you are or what your background is, you have strengths or talents you’ve cultivated over the years.
- Acknowledge you can continue developing your strengths. For example if your talent is photography, recognize you can continue to improve your photography!
- Develop your strengths independently; don’t do anything that requires the approval of someone else.
The power is within you
The great thing is this:
You already have the power within you!
Your task: don’t dim your own inner flame, don’t censor yourself, and never compromise. Who knows how many more talents lay hidden inside you, disguised!
