Ask 100 people if they feel empowered in their lives. Most of them will not give you a straight yes or no answer. They can't because sometimes they feel empowered; sometimes they don't - and that's probably the answer you would hear most often: sometimes.

But the percentage of people who never feel empowered is very high. Too many things have be in place - and all at the same time - for a person to feel totally and completely empowered in his or her life.

What are some of these things? We talk about them all the time, but how often do we think of them as tools of empowerment:

  1. Good health
  2. Financial freedom
  3. Knowledge that you are living life on your own terms and not someone else's idea of what you ought to be doing
  4. Being open and alert to new possibilities
  5. Making conscious and informed decisions on your own
  6. Accepting that you deserve to live a happy, fulfilling life
  7. Ability to take a deep breath and know that you are doing a good job of navigating the ship that is your life - through calm seas and turbulent weather alike

If your day-to-day activities employ these 7 tools, you are already Empowered to Say Yes - Empowered to Say No.

If you need a little help in some of the areas, join Teresa Beeman and the Center for Empowered Women at 11:00 am Eastern time on Mondays and Wednesdays.
