“Passion is energy. Feel the power that comes from focusing on what excites you.”
— Oprah Winfrey
Invest Your Energy Appropriately
To maintain your personal power and remain centered and balanced, pay attention to where you place your energy. Don’t give it away needlessly or heedlessly. Anything or anyone that consumes your time, money, energy, or focus is accessing your energy. You are the one who is in charge of that energy and you need to be responsible for it, one hundred per cent.
Be aware of your boundaries and limitations and be on guard against poor choices that disempower you and your business. Emotional, mental, spiritual, and physical energy needs to be invested just as wisely as your time and your money. The more consciously you invest that energy — and stop giving it away foolishly or in ways that drain you — the better a position you will be in, at all times, personally and in business.
Negativity is everywhere and it is easy to become discouraged, angry, pessimistic, or frustrated. But these are all things that take away power, rather than retaining it. Positivity, calm and patience all serve to give you power and help you hold on to it. Whether you meditate, go for a walk, take control of your schedule, or counsel with someone you trust — do what it takes to retain power over the only thing you have power over — you.
