"The most common way people give up their
power is by thinking they don't have any."
When I read this quotation what immediately came to mind is my favorite passage from "The God Memorandum" by Og Mendino:
Just as it says in this passage, we have power, it was given to us by our Creator. The greatest power we were given is the power of free will - the power to choose. Everything depends on what we do with that power, the choices we make for our lives.
We have the power to make good choices that will lead to happy and fulfilled lives. Equally important, by reassessing our choices, we have the power to implement change in our lives, to choose a new direction - to choose all the things we were meant to be from the very beginning.
Never believe for one moment that you do not have the power to change your life, you have had it all along... all you have to do is claim it.
