Stepping out of the shadow of a polite ego into authoring a book.
Entrepreneur seems to be the new black, with many people wanting the freedom lifestyle of being able to work as free range rather than office cubical chicken. You might need to peak a little harder and get up early to catch the worm, but I believe a happier life involves not having your wings clipped. Many of us would like to create an income from something that makes everyone else’s lives better. That is the secret dream of the author.
Yet in talented change-making authors, I have witnessed that in the shadows of procrastination is a fear of power. Often, part of what they want to change in the world by writing, was created by the force of ‘power’.
So to be a powerful antidote to a toxic hierarchy built on corruption and greed, they would have to be, well… powerful, and put power into their words. This is true of fiction writers too, every book has the power to change the life of the reader, and some authors just can’t own that!
So let me shift a thought here. There is a big difference between ‘power over’ and ‘power to’. If you want to empower others, you have to first own your own power. Otherwise the act of empowering others can leave you depleted, uninspired and make you question everything about your writing!
When you own power then words flow in freedom of creativity and then transformation on any level is possible. So I am writing this e-mail to empower the world changers to step out of the shadow of their own polite ego and turn positive wishes into positive changes.
Our world needs powerful positive ideas behind voices now more than ever, who cares if you ruffle a few feathers and crow early in the morning! If you believe you have what it takes from reading this, you don’t have to quit your job to prove you’re committed or to manifest the break you need. It starts with a small change, and that change is just to say yes to your personal power, and step into it.
