Rules for Empowerment

As a believer in natural, holistic, alternative and universal healing strategies, I had the opportunity to visit a new Holistic Health and Education Centre near where I live.

I picked up a few handouts and today I wanted to share one of them here. It's a list of principles by which I have been making a real effort to practice.

Rules for Empowerment

- Stop trying and start allowing

- You and your own care must become a priority

- Stop trying to manage the universe

- Stop gossiping and get your nose in your own business

- Have a vision that gets you out of bed

- Add gratitude 24/7

- Accept things as they are (you don't have to like it, just stop resisting and accept it)

- Trust that the Universe is abundant and will provide

- Acknowledge yourself and your gifts daily

- Do not make yourself responsible for the happiness of anyone but yourself

- Know that you are the only one that can make your life great

What do you think?


Seriously,

  1. Thanks for sharing!!

    These are definitely things we should all strive to live for, each day. Challenging? Asbolutely. But I think it's a healthy outlook on life.

    My favorite:

    - Know that you are the only one that can make your life great

    So true! :)

  2. I like this post. I like stop gossiping and keep your nose in your own business. In my FT job, it very frustrating to watch people not do what their supposed to do, and their lack of ambition is addressed but unions will back them up. ( I am a member of the union but have a hard time understanding why they continue to support those who can't or won't do their jobs) Any advise on how to deal with this?

    Its given me more to think about!

  3. My favourite is: "Have a vision that gets you out of bed"...

    That's the one thing I'm working on. :)

  4. The union issue is a tricky one. I am a union supporter and I will vote to strike in order to protect my rights as a worker. I like to think that everyone pulls their weight in their own way and concentrate mostly on doing a good job myself.

    If I do come across a co-worker who is not doing their job, I remind myself of all the perks the non-union employees (management) get for not necessarily more time or skills, just status. This reminds me to keep the focus on the rights of the employees and particularly my own.

  5. Words of Wisdom now if we just will take time to apply them.
