The Principle of The Power of You (The Introduction)

The message of The Principle of The Power of You will be in 2 Parts.  Please enjoy!  Look for the 2nd Part in a day or two.     

Many years ago, I suffered terribly with a poor self-image, low self-esteem and a host of self-limiting and self-defeating attitudes a behaviors.    

A friend shared some cassette tapes (early 1980’s) with me about Success/Motivation – Personal Growth & Development, that literally and immediately put me on the path to positively changing the direction of my life…

My friend left those tapes with me for a couple of weeks and I devoured them.  I listened to those tapes for hours, as my life began to change for the better. 

I finally, was beginning to understand the negative feelings I had begun to believe about myself.  I became lost to my myself because I accepted things about myself that was not true.  

I had been in a dark place!  

What happened? There was some early, temporary defeat and failure in my life, and I felt like a total failure as result of it.  That feeling continued to grow and grow!  At that time, I did not understand that many successful people failed many times before becoming successful.  Only if I knew then, what I know now!      

Because I failed at a few things, I believed that I must be a failure.  I had developed a failure-image.  I didn’t know how I got there.  I started to realize how I got in that condition after hearing those tapes.     

All the negative things that I heard about myself as a child, became my reality.  Thinking I was a failure, was real to me.         

I had faulty thinking for a period-of-time in my life.  I believed I was someone other than who I really was. 

Now, I was operating with a distorted self-concept – a poor self-image.  The image I had of myself at that time was not the real me.

Well, the information on those tapes that my friend left for me to listen to for those couple of weeks put me on a life-long journey of Personal Growth & Development and Self-Discovery.

Today, I have been a student, practitioner, teacher and coach of Success/Motivation – Personal Growth & Development for over 30-years, which continues until this very day. 

I have written two Personal Growth Self-Coaching Courses as well a couple of Seminars and several lessons on Personal Growth which cover a variety of topics. 

The Principle of The Power of You is a principle I share in some of my my coaching material…     

The Principle of The Power of You stems from my own experiences.  I want to share with other people some of the principles, concepts and strategies that helped me in moving my life from where I was to where I wanted to be.  

It’s about self-awareness, it’s about strengthening, changing, or modifying your self-concept if needed.  It’s about tapping into your own personal power and authenticity.  It’s about realizing that you are a wonderful, capable human being.

The principle of The Power of You, begins with YOU!!!!!  

It begins with asking yourself the “right” questions.  The Principle starts here, right now, with YOU! 

Tony Robbins said, “The quality of one’s life is directly related to the quality of the questions one ask oneself.”  

One of my mentors said, “Life begins with questions.” 

“It is the questions that we ask or refuse to ask ourselves throughout our lives, that shapes our lives like nothing else can.”

Let’s not underestimate the power of questions.  So, the Principle of The Power of You begins with YOU, asking yourself the following questions:

It is important to be honest in answering the questions.  Go ahead, see how you do in answering the questions.  This is the beginning.  Be on the lookout for the 2nd Part.     

  • Who are you?
  • Why are you?
  • What do you want?
  • Where are you going?

“We know what we are, but not what we may be. _Shakespeare
