The Most Empowered Version of Yourself

Health, relationships and money. How we choose to order these areas of focus in our lives can differ somewhat from person to person, but none of us escapes them.

The reality is that often we focus on what is NOT working yet, I believe the key to happiness in every area of life is actually all about taking full responsibility for our own state of being — happiness, unhappiness — we are inevitably the result of choices we make.

I heard a quote once that really resonated with me, I don’t remember who it was by, but it was simply this: “Happiness is an inside job”. In my opinion truer words have not been spoken,  this sense of personal responsibility is what I believe we really need to exemplify to become empowered.

Get Empowered #1 – Take Responsibility

Taking responsibility is about being at cause, rather than effect. If something happens that upsets us rather than blaming, denying and justifying poor behaviour is about acknowledging the issue — as it is — and asking oneself: how can I do this better next time? Or what do I need to do to rectify this? Even if “rectifying THIS” means, changing the way we think and therefore feel about a particular situation

Get Empowered #2 – Finding Clarity

Now, the key to making things better is clarity. Looking at things as they really are, not better than they are, not worse… simply as they are. Clarity is the first step towards transformation and by understanding where you are at currently you can then actually embark onto the journey of creating the lasting positive shift you want to enjoy.  Such clarity enables us to then ask better questions of ourselves, which in turns gives us the momentum we need to make things what we want them to be.

Get Empowered #3 – Positive Gratitude

Consider these questions…

  • How can I feel even more joy and happiness in my life right now?
  • How can I feel even more confident right now?
  • What is absolutely amazing in my life right now?
  • What can I be grateful for in my life right now?

When we see these questions, for most people it’s much easier to identify what’s not working. These questions are challenging at the best of times and being positive, takes practice. Yet challenge yourself to find answers to these questions because recognition of the positive builds gratitude for what we do have, which in turn supports more positive thinking. Positive thinking, is an upward spiral.

Taking responsibility for how you feel and react to life’s circumstances, finding clarity by ditching what “if ” scenarios for what “is” and practicing gratitude — these are all steps to becoming more empowered.

Get Empowered #4 – Learning

I know you are a part of my community because you either want to conceive and/or you simply want to give your child the best possible start in life. Years before I even started TTC I began reading and educating myself on parenting.

So my advice and experience is always ‘act pregnant now to get pregnant later’. Even if right now, your family comprises of you, your partner and the idea of the baby you want to create together, I believe the better prepared you are to have a child, the better parent you will be.
