I was going to title this write up “What sets you apart?” Instead I used the punchy yet cliched “The power of YOU”. As that is what it is, the power that lies within you!! It is unique and sets you apart from everyone else. Without stating the obvious, each one of us is a unique genetic being, there is nobody else on the planet like you. Isn’t that amazing?
Realising one’s potential will come first from loving oneself. If you don’t think you are good enough, then that may show through in what you do. I don’t know about you but for me, there is a constant chatter, critique, cacophony of comments going through my head. I am very critical of myself. Whether this is lack of confidence, or the path to realise the best potential, all depends on how I am feeling in that moment.
Having a daily yoga and meditation practice for me always pushes me towards the latter. Feeling confident and realising my full potential. I am not saying that I am going to overthrow the orange tinged ruler or calm the nuclear testing (read threatening) supremacist, but I do feel like the ruler of my own world. When you look inward and tap into the power of you, you can make a difference to the world around you. It is good to have some level of critique in your head, push yourself to achieve that little bit better, go that level higher, but also make sure you look at your achievements and give yourself a pat on the back.
