Excerpt From Chapter One: Most cultures identify powerful individuals as those with the greatest amount of control over others. Political and business leaders certainly qualify, but the phenomenon of power isn't limited to people in obvious positions of influence it applies to anyone who claims a superior position as a result of race, education, net worth, physical strength, physical beauty, position of authority or accumulation of assets. Special knowledge, sexual prowess, where they live or whom they know can also lead to such claims. But true power comes from within. Those who are in touch with their own true power have a presence and a quality that affects the people around them. They impress not because they want to but because of the energy they radiate, which often has nothing to do with material accomplishment or career success. Unfortunately, many of us feel powerless and unable to make a difference in our lives or in the world. When we feel powerless we end up wanting what we think we don't have, which we view as external to us. This is one of the reasons why we emulate the lifestyles of those we perceive as having made it. We focus our attention sometimes to the point of obsession on pursuing the things they have: more money, more beauty, more toys, more authority. If we can just get a bit more of that, we can control our lives and feel safe and secure. But these are only symbols of power. Real power is not about control, or looking good, or having more. Real power is about getting in touch with our strengths, skills, talents and gifts our unique purpose and contribution to the greater whole. To reclaim our power, we need to let go of our fears of making mistakes, leaving our comfort zone, and worrying about what others think, and open ourselves to the constant flow of ideas, opportunities and energies that are available to every one of us, all of the time.
