When faced with challenges, do you ask yourself powerful questions that lead you to empowered answers? When the going gets tough, instead of asking, “Why me?” or “What did I do to deserve this?” ask yourself, “What part did I play in the creation of my current reality?” and, “What can I do to improve it?”. When you bring the questions back to yourself, you become empowered in the face of your circumstances – you position yourself to make the necessary changes to improve your situation. There is no doubt that outside forces affect your reality however, the place where you have the most control is found within yourself; in your thoughts, actions and words. Own your reality, empower yourself and make the best of your circumstances.
