Do you worry about salary, or do you use your power of language, connection and empathy to make someone's day easier? Do you empower yourself with moments of silence and reflection on your values? This is the power we have. All the time.
I remind myself as much as I mention it here in this post, as often we forget and get caught up in the feeling of powerless. We often forget that we can influence others and at least take responsibility for our communication. Our language, words and tone. The ability to display empathy by walking in someone else's shoes for awhile. We can serve others by using our power.
I encourage your to click on the link above and hear Joshua speak about power. It has been a blessing on my weekend and inspired me to look more deeply at how I express my power this week.
