The Process of Empowerment
The Energy of Determination
Determination is at the core of the personal development and empowerment program. Determination is power! It is pure energy of thought and emotion. This power exists within the emotions. Determination is a power and force that when properly distributed can move YOU toward remarkable achievements. Many of us use this emotional energy when reacting or in anger. Very few of us know how to properly direct emotional energy in positive ways. We have learned to use our emotional energy in non-productive ways or as a response to fear or fright. When time is put into the practice and study of the energy of determination the results and outcomes will be amazing. If practiced consistently, determination is directly responsible for change within your life. Determination begins with a decision and once the decision is made the process of directed mental effort begins. Again, determination is firmly deciding that YOU are going to change within (your mind and thoughts). Once your mind has the power or charge to change, YOU will begin to do the things that allow YOU to consistently achieve your goal. In action, this decision becomes intense focused power and directed personal authority. Taking power and authority over your life is empowerment and change begins the moment that YOU become determined mentally that no feeling, mood or emotion can stop YOU. Becoming determined requires complete commitment. All of your thoughts and focus must be directed toward affirming your mental and emotional power. This focus will allow YOU to concentrate on the things that will allow YOU to achieve your goal. This power, drive and will are all forms of the power that exist within. We have to begin to consciously focus our internal power and channel this energy in areas of our lives that will truly benefit us. The utilization of the power of determination can be seen when a person is relentless and very difficult to control or contain. Directing the energy and power of determination will influence your choices, actions and activities. Each day that YOU practice directing this energy your thoughts, moods, emotions and life will change. Practice directing the energy and power of determination within your life today, each day, everyday one day at a time.
