The Process of Empowerment
The Actualization Phase
The process of Empowerment is a series of steps and stages that YOU will experience when attempting to change or reach a goal. The first step in the process is the thought of wanting to change or reach your goal. This thought or wanting usually is consistent and brings about discussion, a longing or desire. Within this process, your confirmation will usually come through things that YOU may see on TV, hear on the radio or in conversations with friends and family. The next step in the process is the actualization phase; this is where YOU actually start the process. The actualization phase begins with motivation, excitement and a strong desire to make a change or to reach your goal. It is within this phase that most people fail to reach their goals for several reasons. Generally, the actualization process or excitement only lasts for a few days or weeks and then it ends. At this point, most people lose desire and momentum, stop the process and return to the same old actions, activities and behaviors and back to the old lifestyle and ways of living. At this point, many begin to feel as if they just cannot get over the hump. This is where the Process of Empowerment comes in. It is at this point, that a strong foundation is developed by the utilization of the tools of Empowerment to assist YOU in pushing through and past the actualization phase and into Empowered momentum. This Empowered momentum will allow YOU to become consistent in thought and action to reach your goals. It is important to remember that the process of Empowerment is a consistent combination of daily thought and action. The process calls for creating balance, developing focus and utilizing faith on a daily basis. Begin to work on yourself today, each day, everyday one day at a time.
Balance - An even distribution of (energy, thought, focus and faith) enabling YOU to remain upright and steady.
