Back in the days when we were in the corporate world empowerment was all about the company empowering its employees and managers empowering their staff; then you become self-employed/run your own business. Suddenly its just you so is empowerment relevant anymore ? You bet your life it is.
Think about it…
When did YOU last empower yourself to not open an email from an ex-client who was bound to be writing to hassle about something ?
When did YOU last empower yourself to not accept a mandate even though you needed the $$ because you knew the client would cause you grief ?
Have you empowered yourself to not do everything but to outsource a few things ? – like setting up the website in WordPress, or doing your tax returns.. sure you can do it but you’ll probably do it slower than someone else and while you are doing that who is getting in the clients ?
Go on – make a list of things that annoy or irritate you; the things you do not like doing; the things you are slow at and then empower yourself to make changes.
Feeling empowered makes you feel great and utlimately it will make you great.
Don’t you agree ?
