If you are looking to delve into some empowerment and find ways to lift your spirit and focus yourself in the right direction, start with some of these posts!

That Which Does Not Kill Us Makes Us Stronger – The challenges in our lives are what help shape us. They are painful and tough to work through, but they are those golden moments that put us on the path to who we are and who we can become.

Bravery Is Not Being Fearless; It Is Being Afraid And Doing It Anyway – Being brave is about facing your fears, picking yourself up by the boot straps, and continuing through the anxiety. It is not the brave who are unafraid; it is the brave who keep going.

You Can Have Results Or Excuses – Not Both – You are the only one who can change your life, so now is the time to take your power back. Put down the excuses and drive yourself towards results.

Silence Is A Source Of Great Strength – Find a way to listen – really listen – to others and watch your relationships improve. Stop waiting for your turn to talk and find your silence.

The Fears We Don’t Face Become Our Limits – Fear can get in the way of our lives if we allow it to. Whether it be a medical, personal or global, working through your fears is the only way to get past them.

In The End, We Only Regret The Chances We Didn’t Take – Take chances in life. Try new foods, make a new friend, pick up a new hobby. Live your life responsibly, but live it without regret.

The Only Person You Should Try To Be Better Than Is The Person You Were Yesterday – The only real competition in this world is with yourself. Be better than you were yesterday and you’ll be well on your way to success!

If You Don’t Like Something, Change It; If You Can’t, Change Your Attitude – The way we feel about the decisions we are making sets the stage for our lives. If you don’t like something, do something to change it or do something to change you.

If Nothing Changes, Nothing Changes – We are the only ones who can make the changes in our own lives. We control our own destiny. Make the changes in your life that need to be made and watch what happens.

Worry Does Not Empty Tomorrow Of Its Sorrow, It Empties Today Of Its Strength – If you allow worry to overtake you, you can’t see the beauty in life. Find a way to calm yourself and appreciate everything around you!

If You Love Something, Set It Free – Relationships are about freedom and trust. The freedom to choose to be with someone, help someone, love someone. Set your loved ones free knowing that they feel loved and will come back to you.

When You Say ‘Yes’ To Others, Make Sure You Are Not Saying ‘No’ To Yourself – It can be tough to say no to people when it feels easier to say yes. Learn how to balance your life by knowing when it is okay to say no.”

The Most Influential Person You Will Talk To All Day Is You – What we say to ourselves can be so much more important than anything that anyone else has said to you. Be gentle with your words!

When People Show You Who They Are, Believe Them – One of the toughest lessons to learn, but one of the most important. People will not change because you want them to, so really hear your friends, family and partners when they tell you who they are.

Perception Is Reality – What we believe to be true is often influenced by our own experiences. Our perception creates our reality. Knowing that can make the difference in the world you experience around you.

Sorry Seems To Be The Hardest Word – Saying you are sorry and really meaning it is the first step towards healing. Say it, mean it and don’t repeat the behavior to get on the track to real healing.

Happiness Is A Choice – Deciding to be thankful and happy is a choice. Anyone can make it, even if you have to start with the smallest of things. It is your choice to make.

You Wouldn’t Worry So Much About What Others Think Of You If You Realized How Seldom They Do – It’s hard to believe that people aren’t aware of your bad hair day or medical issues, but typically they’re not. They’re busy thinking about their own issues, not yours.

Stop Protecting People From The Natural Consequences Of Their Actions – Learning the difference between helping and enabling is a tough one, but allowing someone to face the consequences of their actions is often when they will learn the most.

Chance Favors The Prepared Mind – If you set yourself up for success in any area of your life, luck is more likely to follow.

The Definition Of Insanity Is… – The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results – What are you going to do today to help end the insanity in your life? You are in control of your own destiny, so it is up to you to change the direction towards a healthy existence.

You Are In Control Of Your Own Destiny – YOU are the only one who can change your future. It’s time to take the bull by the horns and change your destiny!

You Teach People How To Treat You – The way you react to and behave towards others will let them know what you will and won’t take. You can change your world!

Forgiving Is Not About Forgetting Or Absolving, It Is Taking Your Power Back – A wise person once said that hatred is like you drinking poison and waiting for someone else to die. Find a way to release the poison – not for them, but for you.

Empowerment Is Free: Share Your Story!

empowerment-share-your-story Empowering people and sharing stories of empowerment have become my passion over the last few years. I think that it is actually one of the most helpful things that you can do for yourself. Hearing other people’s stories – finding the kernel that you relate to – and letting it impact your life. It is a special relationship that you are building. I am extremely excited to announce that I am working on a new project (which I will tell you much more about soon!) and I would love to share your stories. We all have stories of empowerment to share and I encourage you to own your truth and your history and, if you are comfortable enough, share these stories with my audience.

Empowerment is achieved in countless ways, so these stories can range from being a survivor of abuse or illness to finding a way to get out of debt and beyond. Your story can be as long or as short as you feel comfortable with and I am more than happy to answer any questions or concerns that you may have. This is a family friendly site, so all I do ask is that you please keep that in mind in regards to language. You are welcome to email your stories or questions to couponingfor4 (at) gmail (dot) com and we can go from there!

Like I said, everyone has a story of empowerment, whether you think that you do or not. And if you can’t remember anything today, be open to thinking back on your experiences and what someone else may learn from situations went through. My goal is to create a community of empowerment and I so look forward to sharing that with you very soon.

Empowerment Is Free: You Can’t Always Look On The Bright Side

November 16, 2016

One of the things that I think most of us can agree on is that women are fixers. We are always in the “business” trying to fix something or actually doing it. We are good for that! We are dependable that way. But when a problem doesn’t have a solution, we feel stunted. We feel […]

August 31, 2016
It’s not the years in your life that count. It’s the life in your years.

It’s not the years in your life that count – It’s the life in your years. Abraham Lincoln has been credited with this quote, but it’s not clear who actually wrote it. That said, I think that the sentiment is one that many have expressed over the years for one reason – it’s true. Life […]
