If there is one thing, I have noticed over the years is that there are not many conversations around women finding their power and stepping into that power. In fact, for years, I have seen countless women put themselves last, second-guess every move, become accustomed to being underpaid and overworked all while everyone around them builds their empires, lives life on their own terms, and takes the world by storm.
Why is it that no one encourages women to find their power and step into that power? Why is it that no one encourages women to say no, set boundaries, and finally choose themselves? There needs to be more of this, and it is something that must become a norm in society.
So, what I have done is put together a list of power moves that every woman can make daily. One thing I teach often is that making power moves do not need to be complicated, and it should be something we do daily without second-guessing ourselves and feeling unworthy.
Here are a few simple power moves you can incorporate into your daily life that will help you take back your power and take the world by storm.
Say no and stick with that answer:
How often have you found yourself saying no, only to be persuaded and guilted into saying yes eventually, just to please those around you? Have you ever seen a man being guilted into saying yes once they have said no? I can tell you now that this number is a lot lower than the number of women experiencing this. For once and starting today, say no and stick with that answer. You may find yourself feeling a ton of anxiety around it at first, but eventually, this will become second nature, and the empowerment you will feel is something every woman should strive for.
Set boundaries even with those closest to you:
Another thing so many of us do that needs to stop is never setting boundaries and never standing up for ourselves. If someone is disrespecting you, and making you feel unworthy, it’s time to set some serious boundaries. For example, if someone in your family makes you feel terrible about yourself every time you see them, try to see them less. Protect your energy by setting some serious boundaries. If you do this, you will find yourself in a better mental state, and you will also be more prepared the next time you see that person.
Step out of your comfort zone:
There is nothing more liberating and empowering than stepping out of your comfort zone and taking the world by storm. Why not do something spectacular that will make you feel empowered? Post that blog post or create your business Facebook page. No matter what it is, empowering yourself and stepping into your power in 2021 is about challenging your norm and stepping out of your comfort zone. You do not need to take huge steps, but you need to take some steps to move you in the right direction.
Decide to choose yourself:
Everything comes down to your choices in life, and for once, I need you to choose yourself. As women, we are known for putting ourselves last and our dreams, and if there was ever a time to stop this, it is now. You deserve just as much as the next person, and it’s time to choose yourself and get going. Choosing yourself could be as simple as waking up an hour earlier to work on your business, or it could be registering that business you have been dreaming about for so long. Taking one simple step after another and choosing yourself needs to become normal to you. Start slow, but start either way and keep going from there.
Don’t be afraid to rewrite your story:
A topic I chat about a lot is rewriting your story. You are not the same person you were five years ago, and your past does not need to define who you are now. Yes, it has played a part in who you are now, but it has no control over your future. Who do you want to be? What do you want to be? What impact do you want to have? Now is the time to start writing and stepping into the woman you want to be. What I recommend is whipping out your journal, lighting a candle, and write about your future. How will your future look? How will you feel every morning, and what would you do every morning? This is what will help you step into who you are working being. Never be defined by your past or allow it to control your future. You hold that power, and that power should never be taken away by feelings of your past.
Finding your power and stepping into your power in 2021 does not need to be difficult, and it does not need to be complicated. It’s all about taking simple steps every day to take back your power and hold onto that power, and these simple ways can help you do that.
You are already so powerful. Imagine what you could do if you had control of all that power in 2021.
