Authentic empowerment is the knowing that you are on purpose, doing God’s work, peacefully and harmoniously.
~ Wayne Dyer
The Self Empowerment Pledge
Seven Simple Promises That Will Change Your Life.
Monday’s Promise: Responsibility: I will take complete responsibility for my health, my happiness, my success, and my life, and will not blame others for my problems.
Tuesday’s Promise: Accountability: I will not allow low self-esteem, self-limiting beliefs, or the negativity of others to prevent me from achieving my authentic goals and from becoming the person I am meant to be.
Wednesday’s Promise: Determination: I will do the things I’m afraid to do, but which I know should be done. Sometimes this will mean asking for help to do that which I cannot do by myself.
Thursday’s Promise: Contribution: I will earn the help I need in advance by helping other people now, and repay the help I receive by serving others later.
Friday’s Promise: Resilience: I will face rejection and failure with courage, awareness, and perseverance, making these experiences the platform for future acceptance and success.
Saturday’s Promise: Choice: I will have faith that, though I might not understand why adversity happens, by my conscious choice I can find strength, compassion, and grace through my trials.
Sunday’s Promise: Faith: My faith and my gratitude for all that I have been blessed with will shine through in my attitudes and in my actions.
