We lose it when we lose control.
Even the meek among us prefers to be in charge of their own destiny.
One guaranteed way to never be in charge of your destiny is to waste time trying.
Give away your power and see if you die – it’s more likely that you will live happily on every occasion.
Help others become empowered – not through words but actions. Take a seat and say, “you run this meeting” and then do everything you can to help them succeed.
Stairs are for running down, people are for building up – every breath you invest in making another person more powerful, makes you more powerful.
Fight to keep control and you’ll live a lifetime of unhappiness.
Give it away by enabling others and your become more powerful than you could ever imagine.
