Empowering Strategy-1 - Envision Your Significance!
Every person has the potential to make a difference in this
world. Look at how your life interacts with others and
offers them opportunities to discover, contribute or create
See yourself taking positive actions, making meaningful
contributions and shaping creative solutions. To succeed, be
someone who searches for and empowers meanings, impacts or
solutions to enrich our work, lives and situations.
Empowering Strategy-2 - Model Success!
The first rule of investment is: "Invest in yourself first!"
History is the stories of leaders, role models and movers
and shakers. Why try to re-invent the wheel, when there are
thousands of successes already available to you?

library and find the life story of the person you consider
to be the greatest leader of all time.
Still here? - don't come back until you have that book in
OK, now start reading, studying and applying the principles
that that person used to reach their pinnacle of success.
Empowering Strategy-3 - Be Eager to Learn New Things!
Well, let's see - there are many ways to acquire new
knowledge, uncover hidden truths and find wisdom:
=> books, magazines, articles and papers, training courses
and programs, discussion groups, media outlets, stories and
plays, dreams and meditations, fasting ad prayers. <=
If you are a person who works with information, people or
ideas you need to invest at least 4 hours a week into your
continuing education or $60 USD a month or both.
In this ever-changing world of challenges, problems and
opportunities, you need to force yourself to be eager to
learn new things!
Empowering Strategy-4 - Appreciate Yourself!
A great source of personal power comes from embracing the
gifts of life, liberty and happiness you enjoy.
Regardless of your plight, there is a preciousness about
your unique desires, feelings, thoughts and experiences
worthy of your reflection, appreciation and recognition.
Your achievements, accomplishments and realizations should
be remembered, recorded and contemplated on using:
=> Diaries and journals
=> Mind-maps or doodling
=> Audio or video-taping
Empowering Strategy-5 - Harmonize Your Mind!
Meeting with people who wish to share their ideas,
objectives and visions with you in a spirit of perfect
cooperation and harmony increases your success to Warp-speed
You probably already have seen how other legendary leaders
have used this Master Mind concept to great benefit - just
look at the role played and power exerted by the alliances
your leader participated in.
Your Master Mind may include people you usually do not
associate with - like other professionals, entrepreneurs and
leaders - almost certainly, your everyday colleagues,
friends or family members will not want to join your group.
Empowering Strategy-6 - Energize Your Faith!
Faith is simply a matter of adding something of substance to
your hopes and then using the eyes of your mind to see
evidence of those things even though they are not yet there.
What do you hope for? To energize your faith, you must first
put some substance into your hope.
Let's say you are hoping for a better job. What substantial
efforts are you investing into that hope?
=> Have you re-written or prettied-up your CV/Resume?
=> Are you consulting with Search counselors or experts?
=> Do you know which jobs or industries you want to work in?
Empowering Strategy-7 - Be Willing to Serve!
Greed, selfishness and closed-mindedness block the flow of
power every time - these negative attitudes compel us to
pull back from connecting with and enjoying sources of
Power is a two-way exchange, we give it away and take
advantage of it. Jesus observed that the "greatest among you
[human beings] shall be servant of all."
History's greatest and most beloved leaders have all been
servants to their cultures, nations and to our world.
We boost our own power when we serve the needs of others, so
by giving away the power of our time, abilities and gifts,
we increase our own power-supply.
May the Lord God always bless those who make the effort to
bless others first and foremost - that's my prayer for you.
