Learn 3 Ways to Empower Yourself and Change Your Results

Sometimes you cannot see the light at end of the tunnel because you focus on the wrong thing in order to move your life forward or to take it to the next level. Change requires doing things in a certain way.

In this blog article I share with you 3 ways you can empower yourself in order to change your results.

  1. Ask empowering questions

When something goes wrong the general tendency is to ask dis-empowering questions, such as: “Why me?”, “Why now?”, “What have I done?” etc. Such dis-empowering questions lead nowhere. Therefore it is important to be aware that the quality of the questions you ask yourself will determine the quality of your life experience.

Consequently, asking yourself empowering questions can have a miraculous effect on the results that you get in your life:

For example if your goal is to create a career that you love you can ask yourself the following empowering questions:

  • What is the greatest joy I get from working?
  • What are my natural gifts and talents I want to share with the world?
  • How do I love to express myself the most?
  1. Develop Solution-based thinking

There might be times when you beat yourself up because you focus on what went wrong. Focusing on what went wrong for too long is problem-based thinking whereas focusing on what went right is solution-based thinking.

Problem-based thinking dwells on the problems and therefore it does not move you forward and it keeps you stuck. On the other hand developing solution-based thinking, each time you face a challenge or obstacle will enable you to fix the problem and will get you closer to the result you desire.

For example, you are not satisfied with your present career. Instead of focusing on what went wrong; the mistakes you made like going from job to job without ever being satisfied with any of them or studying one thing after an other without truly finding your purpose,  you could take some time to reflect on what you truly and authentically enjoy doing.

  1. Take at least 5% more responsibility for your life

Should there be an area in your life you are not where you want to be, like your career for example, ask yourself the following empowering question: “If I was to take 5% more responsibility for my career what would I do?”

You might come up with the following answers:

  • I would define the work environment and industry that is right for me.
  • I would look closely at the company’s culture and see if it is a fit.
  • I would improve my communication with my supervisor.

Such an empowering question: “If I was to take 5% more responsibility for my career what would I do?” puts you in the right frame of mind since it motivates you to take action and helps you get unstuck.

To summarize the 3 ways you can empower yourself in order to change your results are:

  1. Ask empowering questions
  2. Develop solution-based thinking
  3. Take at least 5% more responsibility for your life

Question to accelerate your success:

  • What step 1, 2 or 3 could you implement today to empower yourself so that you can change your results?
