How Can I Empower Myself?


Jeremy Salazar

In your life there are challenges, dreams, opportunities, problems, routines, conflicts, achievements, barriers, losses, gains, possibilities, favorable situations and complicated crises… And there will continue to be, because the only thing left in the life of any human being changes.

Therefore, I invite you to practice these 5  exercises that will help you promote their personal empowerment.


  1. Believe in yourself and value yourself

Do you feel that it is difficult for you to move forward? Do you lack strength? Well, the first step to overcome this is to begin to believe in yourself, in the value of your qualities and skills that are what make you unique.

It is necessary that you begin to do an exercise of appreciation of all the

things that you do great and make you stand out from others.

An example may be that you have the confidence to undertake something believe in yourself and take risks.


  1. Do you know what you want?

One of the most difficult things is to truly know what you want.

Sometimes we don’t get anywhere, even though we have many capacities and knowledge, because in reality what happens is that we do not know what we want. Just as we are accustomed and accommodated to do what the others want, leaving our own desires aside. 

(As much as your desires can mean in your life and what you can do with them. However, for that you need to know what you want. If you don’t know it either, you can’t say it and you can enjoy other advantages of knowing what you want.)

How do I know what I want?

Well, simply thinking about what I want and analyzing if it is the best for me, not simply getting carried away by other people’s comments.


  1. Be positive and use positive language

The important thing is to regulate language through training and thus consolidate the habit of expressing ourselves in a positive way. A fundamental aspect to take into account will be to be aware of the emotions that are experienced, and then use the appropriate words in order to feel better. Always think positive and not negative as there are times when emotions can affect us and stop us or simply make your day worse.

  1. Change your beliefs and say “I can”

One cannot be empowered if you constantly believe in “I can’t or I don’t want to”.

“A belief is a firm assent and agreement with something, that is, an idea that is considered true

Say to yourself, “I deserve it.” If you think like that, you can never move forward, so I suggest you bring it back to your personal beliefs.


  1. Be creative

All of us, in our first years of life, are potentially capable of creating without limits, of making mistakes and of dreaming without restrictions, without judgment and without fear. But over time, “we enter the system” and we incorporate mandates, education and permits that place us within the paradigm of what is socially correct; of what we should be and do and what is expected of us. As Carl Gustav Jung said: “The problem with most human beings is that they are born originals and die duplicates”, a tenor of how people over-adapt

There are people who have a lot of creativity to create many projects but copy others. It’s better not to copy others and find something unique.
