I want you to be perceived as a person of power.
Power to Do
The Power to Do is your ability to raise your potential as an individual and then tap that potential to make what you choose real.
You are recognized as powerful when people know that what you say you are going to cause to happen does.
You might be (or be perceived as) brash, arrogant, kind, loving, sweet, smart, thoughtful or any number of things.
None of these attributes cements the notion of power in your mind in the mind of another.
People observe that you are not just a doer. You are not just a person who takes action. People observe that you tell people what you will do and then you get it done.
This creates TRUST and CERTAINTY in the minds and hearts of those around you, those who follow you.
Because they know you have the power to consistently accomplish. Your word is simply reading the news in advance.
Imagine the sales call where you are recognized as having this core life characteristic. Imagine the job interview. Imagine asking the girl for a date.
When your word is gold and your actions produce the intended results for all to see you have power. That power would be foolish to turn away.
People hearing you talk about goals and results is certainly important at times, but nothing compares to others seeing your directed actions generating your outcomes.
An outcome I have for you is that you are now to be observed as a person of power.
Power: Emerging from a Seed to Greatness
I am certain that it is obvious after having read the first two articles in this series, that power is an inside out job.
Clearly, no one can give you lasting Power to DO. It comes from within.
BUT, people can easily steal or drain your power in very real ways!
Know this: It is much easier to lose power than it is to acquire it.
Power drains can also happen without the influence of others. Your environment can easily cause your power loss. Fortunately all of this is easy to test. If you change your environment in the ways you will learn about in this series, you WILL be able to MEASURE whether or not those changes accomplished anything or not.
The person with Power to Do, EXERTS EFFORT consistently and with full awareness throughout the day.
It is this person that has mastered growing The Power to Do.
People recognize your inner power, see you can be trusted and then give you power with them.
It happens because of the trust and certainty that you manifest in those who come to know you.
Imagine that someone has never met you before this very moment.
That certain someone sees you resist a significant temptation, for example. (Perhaps you turn down the offer of something that others are doing that they know they probably should not be doing/experiencing/eating/feeling.)
Your observed resistance to temptation, triggers a feeling of respect in others that typically triggers an experience or sense of trust in you.
Do you want the kind of power that does not just command respect but triggers trust and certainty in you? Continue reading…
