It is very good for every person to know how he could empower himself first before even thinking of how he will be empowered, and since empowerment is regarded as a desirable state to attain everyone in that manner desires to attain that empowerment. Having powers over one’s life is what may be proper meaning of the term to be empowered, however, this power above his life does not overlap the other people’s power over their lives, it’s having the maturity to be oneself in the midst of others. This is also to mean that one is able to take responsibility for his life and also being active for his life, this does not, however, mean to be so isolated since we are empowered and be island of our own.
Truth is always the best weapon, empowerment starts in our lives when we start by accepting our truth this is to mean we accept who we rely are, once our accept that and start living as per that truth already we have empowered ourselves a bit. Obstacles of empowerment should be looked on when training for empowerment, as this will help one understand fully how he can be able to overcome the challenge and then attain the required of his empowerment and enjoy life to the maximum. The status quo in the world today of social thinking is one major hindrance of reaching empowerment expected of us, the world set up as it is today has conditioned us to give out our powers, that’s why people hardly question what they think may be wrong but its assumed to be right.
Our way of becoming empowered will at most times be blocked by our own low self esteem, since if one does not even appreciate himself, how more will he trust his thinking, many people are tied in this area due to low self-esteem they should be encouraged to uplift their morale in order to achieve the required empowerment. Lack of understanding one’s self is yet another factor that makes people not to reach their potential in empowerment, this is because one hardly understands himself, therefore, one can’t even know his power. Not only does fear prevents us from reaching our desired goal but also prevents us from being self-reliant and clouds our sight such that we are unable to reach our potential, therefore it would be quite in order if let go of the fear and reach towards our goal of realizing our power.
Knowledge is said to be power, thereby we can and absolutely know that lack of knowledge will also hinder us from reaching our desired potential, for one to be empowered he must be conversant with what is happening and he must know things, adding knowledge in our life’s stipulates that we are adding something to our stores.
