Beginning Your Day
The goal of Empowerment 365 is to create a foundation for personal Empowerment. We began this process by introducing and combining the Empowerment tools of gratitude, forgiveness and humility to assist in creating balance in your life. Each day we began the day with practicing gratitude. First, beginning each day with thoughts of appreciation for life and health. Without those things we could not truly enjoy life very much, could we? We then discuss and implement the practice of forgiveness. Forgiveness is important because we have to release and let go of past events (people, events, actions activities of self and others) to fully live in the present. We must forgive ourselves for actions and choices of the past. We must remember that we all can learn and grow from each experience in life and that each experience prepares us for our future. Lastly, there is the practice of humility. Humility is important because we must learn to become humble. This requires us not to be boastful, prideful or arrogant. The concept places value on others the same as we would ourselves and being of service to others in our daily lives. We promote love for self, this love for self is not a selfish, self centered love, but a true genuine love for the person that YOU are on the inside. We then discussed the importance of our thoughts and the way we feel each day. Our thoughts and feelings are an important part of our lives. They both are internal and both can shape the way we experience the world. Begin to practice making all of your thoughts and feeling positive and productive. Make the way your feel the most important thing in your life today and each day. We introduced the concept of personal development (to work on self) and effort (to simply try) as tools of motivation and direction within the process. Throughout this Empowerment process, we have sprinkled in and defined key word such as, intent, focus and commitment. As the days and months continue to pass by, YOU will experience through your own ability to consistently work on self "change". Change and personal growth is what Empowerment 365 is really all about! I wish you continued success on your journey toward personal development and self improvement each day, everyday one day at a time.
Ending Your Day
The goal of Empowerment 365 is to create a foundation for personal Empowerment by introducing and combining the Empowerment tools of gratitude, forgiveness and humility with relaxation and visualization to assist YOU in creating balance and focus within your life. We end each day with practicing gratitude and forgiveness. Each day ends with quiet reflection and thoughts of appreciation for life and health. The process assists in creating balance in your life by mentally and emotionally releasing the events of your day each night prior to sleep. We then develop the practice of visualization to relax and release of the issues of the day. We also implement the use quiet space and quiet periods prior to ending the day to practice relaxation techniques. Lastly, we review our goals and encourage YOU to turn off the TV and rest peacefully. The quietness of sleep allows YOU to rest and quietly sleep without disturbance. Begin to work on YOU today, each day, everyday, one day at a time.
