With the New Year just starting, some people have not finalized their resolutions yet. Instead of losing some weight or saving more money, finding yourself once again through self empowerment may be a more impactful resolution than you think. It is quite common to hear the word empowerment; however, what does it truly mean? If you say empowerment, you are talking about the process of becoming stronger or more confident in your everyday life. Though different people have different definitions of empowerment, the concept all boils down to focusing on yourself and getting a grip of your life. Don’t know how to empower yourself today and in the coming years? Below are some effective self empowerment tips to live by.
Creating goals is one of the first steps for you to reach empowerment. Though your main goal is to achieve self empowerment, you need to know ways in which you can achieve this in your personal life. For example, you can feel more empowered when you learn about a certain computer program at work that is new to you. Achieving this goal means finding more confidence in yourself and having a way to exceed your position. It is still up to you, though, to make your goals defined and achievable. Essentially, your goals must be SMART, namely, specific, measurable, achievable, realistic, and timely. For this example, you can become an expert in the computer program if you have a SMART goal of spending at the last 30 minutes of your day for four weeks in an online workshop.
Another way to feel empowered is through journaling as your outlet. The best part about this is that you can customize what you are doing based on your needs. One such example is keeping a bullet journal as a way to keep track of your habits and tasks each day. Your journal also serves as a place to list down your SMART goals as well as a few ways for you to achieve them. You can also use your journal as your diary for all the things you are thinking before going to bed.
Striving to learn something new every day can also help you attain self empowerment and better motivation in life. You should know that you can empower yourself still even if you are learning new skills or hobbies that are not related with your career. Take time to learn these new skills or hobbies, and through them, you get another way of feeling empowered about yourself.
