What would need to happen today (barring winning the lotto) to make this the best day of your life?

People who possess personal power believe they can set in motion the direction of their lives. If you ask them to tell you about themselves, you’ll hear a lot about who they are on the inside (“I am capable”, “I am creative”, “I am driven by integrity”, “I am able to…”), instead of defining themselves by an exterior label such as a job title. This competency is vital to successfully taking on new challenges, mastering new skills, and exercising resiliency when things don’t go our way. People with strong personal power are often the movers and shakers of the world. They initiate change, stand up for what they believe, and are catalysts of carving out the life they want to live.

How is your personal power?

If you can answer a solid “yes!” to the statements below, you are well on your way down the journey of this valuable inner strength.  If you waver or have a few “no’s”, not to worry, but you may want to consider working with a coach to gain some traction.

1.  I am clearly aware of my strengths and weaknesses.

2.  I know what I want and am in process of going after it.

3.  I have the ability to get what I want.

4.  I can make smart decisions despite ambiguity.

5.  I feel comfortable voicing unpopular views.

6.  I will go out on a limb for what I believe is right.

7.  I am living my life just as I want.

Again, what would need to happen today to make this the best day of your life?

What is one thing you can do today to help make that happen?
