You have the power to empower, so what’s holding you back? The power of empowerment reaches further and wider than you could ever imagine. The more you empower people, the more empowered you will feel, and the more likely for a ripple effect to occur.
Let’s be clear here, empowerment is not forcing people to do what you believe to be best. It is offering guidance and advice and letting the person that you are empowering to analyze their situation, discover self determination, and finally giving them full and total authority over their decisions.
Being a personal trainer has made me take a step back, and focus on all of the things that the people I work with (in and outside of them gym) enjoy doing (and do well in), rather than focusing on all of the things that they should be doing, but have been deciding not to. In gaining these experiences, I have come to the realization that empowerment is the best way to help people, because it forces them to help themselves.
When people help themselves, they help others🖤
