To be empowered begins with the mind because the biggest tool everyone has is the mind. The willingness to operate one’s mind is the reason why those who have become public figures look like they have not faced challenges. Challenges that may have been worse than what most persons yet to succeed are currently entangled with. The deal is how much one can persevere, how many times you are willing to try again and how much you have refused to give up on your dreams among other attributes. One without hopes and dreams needs to get a life. Yes, every existence should be geared towards something. And the most figurative factor towards success is existence – life. Those who have ceased to exist are not in any race to be successful. Hence, to be living means you have a fight. And those who don’t believe in the fight have ceased to exist until they believe in something.
Success has been defined by many based on their perspectives. It is not wrong to agree with those who have defined success as being able to accomplish your purpose of living. And the biggest question lies in the last three words; “purpose of living”. Until you believe you have a purpose and establish that as your own, it’d be impossible to summon the energies in you, which is necessary to become successful in the quest. The beauty of success is that it overwhelms every past challenge. Success simply set a new platform for a beginning that’s smoother. This simply means that the quest does not stop when a specific dream has been achieved. Some environments may give one an edge to move faster, but every level of life gives one a new level of challenge. And the number of breakthroughs depicts the size of your success. You can agree with me that the bigger you grew, the more responsibility you carry. And to everyone who seeks to achieve more, your empowerment begins with your psychological reference. We will shortly look at some attitudes taught by J.K. Rowling, the author of Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone, attitudes imperative to your greatest empowerment irrespective of the starting point.
Start With what you are very much Familiar with
The stages of life may allow one to take part in many aspects of life. Some desperately want to become renowned philanthropists. But a reconnaissance on the life of those who have achieved that position strongly suggests they were at some positions before becoming one. Success begins with what you can do with the little knowledge or resources available. What have you done with the little that has been given to you? Books were the most available items in the early life of Joanne Rowling, such that she could describe herself as a common-or-garden bookworm. This opportunity led to her dreams of writing a spectacular book and she started working on just that at the closest gasp of the inspiration. Can you imagine where she would have been if she had chosen to start her career as a singer? Perhaps, she would have done well as a songwriter or even a singer. But what matters most is that she took a path that’s parallel to her personal development. This favored the most prolific success she imagined. Hence, the most significant deal is the path you have chosen to light-up your true success irrespective of other notable engagements.
Take the positive side of your Challenges
Sometimes we see our challenges or stages as a block preventing us from succeeding. Instead of seeing them as a prerequisite to the success we are looking for. Taking the positive side helps you resolve every challenge as quickly as possible. It also helps you adapt any permanent or temporary change it has established in your life. Joanne must have been filled with loads of disappointment when she was moving back to the UK from Portugal after her marriage with Jorge Arantes failed. She did not charge her challenges from the negative point of view nor. At the back of her mind, “I’ll have a better opportunity to complete this long awaited novel”. It’s
easy to believe she ceased that opportunity to bury her entire emotions towards bringing something rewarding. Joanne accepted the punishments in her developmental process when she decided to be trained as a teacher. Not considering her previous status or age. This attribute can be seen to have reflected in the book content – the power of self-sacrifice and decision making.
Ensure that every opportunity is utilized to the Best
Every opportunity given to us in life can be viewed as an exam. The more effort you give, the better you score. To those who believe, they’d rather do better in the next opportunity would have themselves to blame for confining their success at the corners of the next opportunity, which would never be there again. J.K. Rowling was teaching in the city’s school when she was writing Harry Potter’s manuscripts. That moment had given her the opportunity to bring out a piece of what she has for the literary world and she nailed it without accepting any lapses. It is obvious she found an atmosphere in Edinburgh which is supportive to Harry Porter’s inspiration. Consider every opportunity as an avenue to bring out the best of you, even with the very little projects and your affairs with people.
Losing hope to your dreams is not an Option
There are positions you would find yourself that would make you think there is no way to success in a specific course. Yes, those awkward moments when you just realize that your present efforts are not good enough to active the dreamland. Harry Potter was not the very first book written by J. K. Rowling, she had tried to activate her dreams many times when she had her previous books published. But when it didn’t happen, she never gave up. It is your duty to work harder each time you exhaust all you have to realize very little or nothing in the end. It’s easier if you stick to the fact that your success is the reason why you are living and that cannot be compromised. Successful people are those who failed and tried again. Don’t imagine the negative results, be optimistic and note that your willingness to keep pressing is the only reason why you will succeed.
