My last Thought for the Week was about “Where is Your Treehouse?” and having a place where you can regroup, revitalise, get a new view of a situation, answer a difficult question, solve a challenging problem, or see something you’ve been missing.

To start with a quote:
“Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure”
– Marianne Williamson –
What does this bring up for you as you read it?
Often those little ‘gremlins’ of ours can pop up and say things like:
“Who am I to be powerful?”
Well, why shouldn’t you be powerful!
The most common way people give up their power is by thinking they don’t have any.
-Alice Walker –
[Novelist and Poet]
What comes up for you when you hear the word ‘powerful’?
Often, people think of ‘power’ as a negative thing where people wield it to get one up on others.
Of course, there are people who use power in that way.
And there are plenty of people I know who are powerful in brilliant ways that inspire and empower those around them all the time.
And that’s what I’m talking about!
For instance, we don’t have to have a booming voice to be powerful – it is often when fewer words are spoken in a quietly powerful way that leave us with the biggest positive impression, right ?
What do you think?
Can you think of someone you admire who is quietly powerful?
What qualities to they have?
And when you are around people you admire in this way, they are empowering you to do the same, probably without even realising it!
Calmness is the cradle of power.

As always, I will leave you with that thought.
I also invite you to book a Complimentary Consultation with me where you can explore further how you communicate powerfully and the impact you are having.
With best wishes for your success.
