I saw this video in the Tony Robbins screening room and it was something I felt compelled to share. We ARE all powerful beyond measure. We choose to be small because that is simply easier. So many of us have negative thoughts embedded in us about success and wealth and what that really means. In studying the subject myself, I’ve found that many people choose a life of mediocrity because it means less responsibility they have to take on, they see wealthy people as greedy, power as corruption and so forth. Some of us just don’t feel like we are the type of person that can or deserves to have that kind of success.
That is not the case in every situation, however, and we fail to realize that. With wealth comes the ability to help others and support noble causes. With power comes the ability to create positive change in your life, in your community and even the world. Choosing to be powerful, claiming the power that we all have within us, allows you to be a positive person if that’s what you choose. We all deserve to be that person and there is more than enough abundance in the world for everyone to have the wealth and power we desire. We all make mistakes but even people that society had written off have turned it around and used their mistakes to change the lives of others for the better. Hardened criminals have spent decades in prison to come out and mentor kids away from that lifestyle. Hackers and criminals that have ruined lives and businesses have turned their experiences and knowledge into ways to protect others and stop people from succeeding in the crimes they have in the past.
Everyone deserves it. It’s something that I’ve had to accept in my own life. Something I’ve had to think about with myself. No one is perfect and I am far from it, but I don’t have to be perfect to make a difference. I am always doing better than someone else. That is a fact. No matter what my mistakes were, I’ve always been stronger than someone, I’ve always had more than others and I’ve always been able to learn something. It doesn’t mean that I’m proud of my mistakes or that I would necessarily do them over again, but what it does mean is that I believe I have an ability to turn every situation into a positive situation, no matter what. It’s a choice.
Claim your power, your purpose and your meaning. Claim yourself. The person that deep down inside you are meant to be. What is it? Who is it? What is your purpose? How can you change other people’s lives? How can you be an inspiration or a conduit of change for one person or the entire world? Stand up and be powerful because you truly are powerful beyond measure. We all are. The universe hasn’t worked for billions of years to create everything we can see just in the visible universe, every bit of this planet teeming with life, from the highest peaks of the mountains to the cracks in the deepest depths of the ocean, to your creation and survival today. All of this didn’t happen for you to simply waste your life. What can you do to make a difference today? Just one thing in your own life, no matter how small it is? How about something minor you can do for someone else? Sometimes, all it takes for you to make a difference for yourself or someone else is a little bit of gratitude and a smile. It’s that simple, but you power beyond measure to do even more than that, but it’s all up to you.
