Do you want to be powerful and effective?
Here is an answer. Own your power and stop giving it away. Every time you say something nasty about yourself or anyone else, you disempower yourself and give your power away. Your power lies in your forgiveness of yourself and others.
Be responsible for the power you have. Your power lies in lifting yourself up. If you find that you are feeling criticized or judged, most likely the loudest critic is you. So thank that little voice for its input and tell it to shut up and listen for once. You are up to too many important things in your life, let that little voice dictate how your life goes.
Stand up to the little voice and own your power.
