10 Empowering Principles to Live by
Deep down we all have a set of beliefs that we rely on to navigate our lives. These principles dictate how we process incoming stimuli, what it means, and how to feel about it. They determine our decisions, our attitudes, roles, strategies, and methods we live by. But here’s the thing: is our belief system helping to bring out the best in us?
One thing is true: our inner rules should help us clarify how to be and what to do. Like a map, they can provide us with a sense of certainty and direction. Here are some empowering principles I try to live by. Consider the following:
- Choose to express yourself.
- Allow yourself to feel your feelings and think your thoughts.
- Confront issues openly and with consideration.
- Be a better listener.
- Seek an imperfect life.
- Accept and respect who you are.
- Embrace the joy in your life.
- Assist and be assisted.
- Grow with intent.
- Appreciate your life.
Expressing yourself openly and respectfully helps avoid suppressing emotions that need to be surfaced and problems that need to be addressed. Acknowledge your thoughts and feelings, but don’t necessarily act on them or believe their content. If you seek an imperfect life, you will welcome mistakes, accept learning, and grow. Also, realize that there’s always room for fun and happiness in what you do. Know that it’s okay to ask for help, to be helped, and to surround yourself with a supportive environment. Growing with intent means reminding yourself about what you work for and why you do it. Appreciate your life and every stage of it.
