“If you don’t like something, change it. If you can’t change it, change your attitude.”
Empowerment is simply taking full responsibility for your own joy in the present moment. Fortunately, that frees us from waiting for others to change or attaching expectation to outcomes. No matter what you wish to change, begin now. Take one conscious step forward and observe how life unfolds. You may decide to pivot direction, shift an old behavioral pattern or change your thoughts.
For instance, if you wish to see more harmony in your relationships, make a dedicated effort not to participate in conflict by purposely remaining neutral or positive. When you choose your words carefully, responding rather than reacting, you’ll discover a different type of strength.
Anger solves nothing. It feeds energy into negative circumstances and strengthens them. The spiritual seeker notices anger when it arises, processes it internally by recognizing that reactivity is in play and chooses to pause, thereby creating space around the situation. These simple moments of presence and intention can transform our experience in surprising ways.
