The Process of Empowerment
Mental, Physical and Emotional Doubt and Fear
Once YOU begin to understand the barriers and face the obstacles in place then YOU can begin to push through them. One thing is clear here, in order to change there will be obstacles and these obstacles must be overcome. These obstacles will occur in three forms, mental, physical or emotional. There are four challenges that each of us will face within the Process of Empowerment and change. Acknowledging the obstacle is the first challenge, the second is understanding the obstacle, third is facing the obstacle and fourth overcoming the obstacle. Acknowledging the obstacle will occur during the first few days of any of the life changing processes mentioned above. Again, the obstacle or challenge to YOU will be mental, physical and or emotional. Many of us have learned to turn away from mental difficulty, physical struggle and emotional challenges. When there are instances where we have to face these challenges, we tend to take the usual route of creating distractions, emotional outbursts, melt downs or direct gratification. Because of these obstacles, we loose the fight and the will within to overcome these challenges. Once this occurs we loose focus and almost always return to the place we began or find ourselves in worse condition than when we started. Within the Empowerment process to find success, there are two major obstacles that must be overcome they are doubt and fear. Doubt and fear are the two things that truly hold us back or stands in the way of our growth and development. As we begin to embark on life changes or engage in any process that involves change doubt and fear has a way of creeping into our minds. Like everything else in the world, doubt and fear have their role to play and job to accomplish. Doubt and fear assist the programs, mindset or ways of thinking that are currently operate within. They act as maintenance programs, guards or gate keepers of the status quo or of your dominant mindset. Once YOU being to work on changing yourself, the sole job and purpose of doubt and fear is to keep you right where YOU are. Here is where the battle begins! The battle begins within your mind. The use of any and all of your mental or emotional experiences will become tools in an all out effort to maintain you where you are mentally and emotionally. Begin acknowledging your obstacles today, each day, everyday, one day at a time
