Disempowerment. What does it mean? It is the act of you taking away your own personal power! You are actually the only person who may. When you use certain words and think certain thoughts you DIS-empower yourself and build everything harder than it needs to be in your life.
Every instant you think, I can not
do this, you are building
your own reality, and that makes you exactly right. You cant! When you tell yourself that you dont deserve something then you do not
. It really is as simple as that. What you tell yourself is true. It is your reality and you are making it a lot harder for yourself than it needs to be.
The truth is that people can not
take away your empowerment unless you allow them to. You are the captain of your ship even if you can not
see it and even if your ship is adrift. When you learn that you may pilot your ship in any direction that you choose, you start
to take back that empowerment and create a wonderful life for yourself. You create it through your beliefs about yourself and the words that you say to yourself. You can do anything that you believe you might
. Disempowerment is when you tell yourself all the things that you CANT do.
Begin to listen to yourself, really listen to what you say to yourself and what you say to others about yourself. Learn that what you say is what creates your life. If you start
to see that the words that you make use of
when you are talking about yourself are true, hopefully you will start
to change them in order to change your reality. This includes jokes that you contruct
at your own expense! Putting yourself down using humor is like wearing a neon sign that says, I have low self esteem! I will generate fun of myself before you might
build fun of me! You could be
the life of the party doing this, but you are never going to empower your life.
Stop diss-ing yourself! Change the disempowering words to empowering ones and create the reality that you deserve.
