In Part 2 of Making Things Happen, we talked about Power as an essential element in bringing a creation into form. And we considered the power to see, as one of the elements of personal power.

Today, let’s look at two more aspects of personal power: the power to choose, and the power to act.

The Power to Choose

A second aspect of power is the power to choose. Once you’ve seen reality as it is, you can choose to create more of the same reality, or you can choose to create something entirely different. Or you might choose to create something that builds on the past to shape a more vibrant future.

You have the power to choose what you’re going to create. That’s where purpose and intention enter into the picture.

You can choose your values.

You can choose how you think, how you act, what you put your energy into, whom you hang out with.

When your choices are in alignment with your vision, your values, and your soul’s purpose, they contribute to your power.

The more that you bring your choices into alignment with your values and your soul, the more power you will have.

The Power to Act

Thirdly, you have the power to act.

You can choose to act in ways that support your values or that diminish them.

You can choose to act in ways that enhance and contribute to the whole, or you can choose to benefit yourself at the expense of the whole-in which case, you will diminish yourself because whatever happens to the whole, happens to you too.

You can act in alignment with Source or you can act against it.

When you own your power to see, to choose, and to act, you stand in your power, you stand in your sovereignty. Then, things start to manifest very quickly-the gap between your intention, action and result becomes much smaller.

When you don’t own your power–when you are stuck in narratives about victimhood, or obsess over your wounds, or don’t follow through on your values and your commitments–you become much less effective.

Right relationship with power is essential for successfully creating anything–in your business and in your life.

Are there aspects of your life or your business that aren’t working as well as you want them to?
