Stop seeking power

img_9759

We are taught to seek power, authority, to be in control, to rise to the top, to be in charge, to be tough, dominant, strong, be the boss.

Stop seeking that. The moment we want to control others we become weak and insecure.

Seek instead to lead, to inspire, to connect, to collaborate, to be cooperative, to compromise, to do things with others, to be inclusive, to be supportive.

Seek to be comfortable with ourselves and accept that worthiness does not come from control, we are all already worthy regardless of what we achieve.

Seek empathy, compassion, connection and vulnerability.

Why not be with others instead of controlling them?
