You 're only one decision away from changing your life forever.

Power gets a bit of a bad rap these days.

This is because we see so many examples of powerful bad people.

But power is not inherently good or bad. It's simply an amplifier.

Power is the ability to direct or influence people or events.

If you're a terrible person before you step into your power, you'll be worse after you do.

But the opposite of this power dynamic is also true.

If you're a good person before you step into your power, you'll be even better after you do.

If you're reading this, I hope you're a good person (AKA a difference-maker) who's ready to become a better person (AKA someone living your legacy through the difference only you can make).

However, if you are a terrible person, please STOP reading. We don't need any of you people becoming even worse now.

Still, reading?

Cool. Thanks for being good people. Let's talk about how you can become even better.

So, how does a good person see, step into, stay in, and share their power as an even better person?

By merely deciding to do so.

Simple, eh? The problem is simple is rarely easy...

Why is it so hard to decide to trust ourselves enough to invest in ourselves and make progress in the difference only you can make?

Because past decisions didn't work out the way, we wanted.

But the only thing worse than a wrong decision is to compound it by allowing that decision to keep you from making the next decision.

Don't allow a lousy decision to burn you twice.

At the end of the day, abdicating our power to circumstances or others is a decision—a wrong decision when it comes to promoting your health and happiness.

What happens if you decide instead to empower yourself?

What happens if, just for today, you trust yourself enough to invest in yourself and the difference only you can make by taking the next small step into possibility and your potential to be and do more and better today?
