Are you wielding the power you have with care?

09.22.2015

We have a tendency to look at ways we are powerless. We feel like we have no power in situations, bad habits, relationships, time commitments, or work.

In reality we have choices in all these places.

We also all have great power to affect other people. We’ve all seen the harried, rude person yelling at the cashier. She probably felt frazzled and powerless, but in that moment she had the power to bring light to that situation or darkness. She could have made someone’s day brighter instead of using her power to bring negativity.

I love the picture I saw of a man getting a group to sing as they waited extra long for a train.

If Mama ain’t happy, ain’t no one happy can be true. One person’s negativity can affect all the people in the family or work space. As can one person’s radiance.

This is one reason simpler living is important. The more hurried and stress a person is, the harder it is to consciously be the light.

You are affecting every person you encounter every day.

How are you wielding that power?

    Positivity is something that most people fail to utilize. It is a powerful ability that can be very influential. You’re right we have the ability to choose what to bring in situations we find ourselves in. In these instances I think we need good decision making skills. To share one’s good feeling to others is very satisfying. I hope your article will do the same to other as it did to me, it opened my mind, to be the light, and to share and affect others in positive ways. Thank you.

    Having a positive attitude towards everything can really make a difference. I understand that life can throw us a lot of challenges, but it is really up to us if we will let ourselves go go down. We must learn to program our automatic response to unpleasant situations in a positive note.
