To be empowered is what almost everyone wants, most people regard to be empowered as desirable state to attain, its good however to first know how we should empower ourself. Its important first if we understand what is meant by the term to be empowered, to be empowered means that one is able to ascertain that he has the control over his life, this statement, however, does not mean having power over others lives. This is also to mean that one is able to take responsibility for his life and also being active for his life, this does not, however, mean to be so isolated since we are empowered and be island of our own.
Truth is always the best weapon, empowerment starts in our lives when we start by accepting our truth this is to mean we accept who we rely are, once our accept that and start living as per that truth already we have empowered ourselves a bit. When thinking of empowerment training courses there are some issues that one needs to understand that they rely hinder us from becoming fully empowered once we arable to understand them we can be able to know how to overcome them. One of the main obstacles to empowerment that should be discussed in all empowerment training courses is the social conditioning, since most people have been conditioned to give away their power to others that’s why people hardly question the way things are done since that’s how it is used to be and is deemed wrong to question such.
Our way of becoming empowered will at most times be blocked by our own low self esteem, since if one does not even appreciate himself, how more will he trust his thinking, many people are tied in this area due to low self-esteem they should be encouraged to uplift their morale in order to achieve the required empowerment. Lack of understanding one’s self is yet another factor that makes people not to reach their potential in empowerment, this is because one hardly understands himself, therefore, one can’t even know his power. Not only does fear prevents us from reaching our desired goal but also prevents us from being self-reliant and clouds our sight such that we are unable to reach our potential, therefore it would be quite in order if let go of the fear and reach towards our goal of realizing our power.
Empowerment can not be reached if one is not knowledgeable ,lack of knowledge is yet another factor that highly hinders empowerment, but with correct knowledge one has chances of being empowered and not only does he empower himself but also he adds knowledge to his store.
