What is Personal Power?

Hello guys,

After a conversation on a different thread a fellow poster commented that he thought the concept of personal power was a flawed one. I think he meant in relation to building self-esteem but I will leave him to clarify that.

We’ve chatted a little and may have different concepts of this idea but I thought it would be interesting to start a thread and find out what YOU all think.

Here’s my basic starting point:
‘Personal Power’ is the ability to use your resources (thinking-emoting-speaking-actions) to achieve the ends you desire.

Personal power starts with re-claiming ownership of these ‘powers’ or tools of consciousness.

Essentially personal power is having an acknowledged ownership of your T-F-S-A and being able to use and direct them at will to change things, inside and out.

I postulate, therefore, that personal power is essential to building self-esteem and self-confidence because if you don’t feel/believe you own your T-F then you won’t be able to acknowledge ownership of the states and frames necessary for building self-esteem.

I’ve created a product to help with this at Confidence and Esteem Building Audio – but what do you think? Agree? Disagree? Have a different view?
