Weekly TKD Lesson

A habit cannot be tossed out the window; it must be coaxed down the stairs a step at a time.
    — Mark Twain, 1835-1910, American Writer and Humorist

Perhaps you are asking, “What is personal empowerment?”
Put in simplistic terms, empowerment is freeing yourself from
limitations or living a life of misery and taking full
responsibility for everything that is in your life.

It’s about quitting making excuses for things that aren’t going
right in your life and DOING something about changing them!
It’s about choices, the choices that you make on a daily basis
regarding all aspects of your life.

It’s about being in control of what you allow in your life, who you
associate with, what you read, what you watch on television and at
the movies, who your mentors are, what music you listen to, what
you eat, etc.

Why are these choices so important to empowerment? … You
literally ARE your choices.

A general definition: empowerment is a process that helps people
gain control over their own lives.

Therefore, empowerment is about learning there are choices, in
which you have the right to be the healthiest and happiest person
you can be in this now. The past is the past, and it cannot be
changed; therefore, the focus is placed upon what you can do in
this very moment.

What choices can you make to empower yourself NOW?
As you exercise your choices and take responsibility and action,
you will gain increased control over your life.
