My greatest successes have come when I used my inner power to make the most of the good and bad times. When times were rough, ultimately it was a strong inner core that got me through the worst. You can tune up your inner strength with a few key exercises, just as you would your body. Here are some tips:
Insecurity is an inner-strength killer and it easily creates conflicts in yourself and with other people. Your personality is the foundation of power. Get to know it well. Find peace with yourself. Work on getting comfortable in your own skin. The happier you are with yourself, the less the outside world can do damage, and the more you can give in peace.
2. Spend time in silence.
The world is a noisy place with many people and monitores around you. Distractions and disruptions can chip away at your core, leaving you frazzled and beat up. Take time to rejuvenate. Set aside one day a month to completely unplug from everything. That means no email, music, TV, or people. It’s a great time to connect with nature and just sit with your thoughts. The only way to calm your inner chaos is with 100 percent focus. Try to set focus with your whole body. Feel it with all your cells. They are all communicating with each other. Your presence is your power.
Every ounce of energy wasted drains your inner strength. Why do things inefficiently and redundantly? Control what you can control so you can focus your efforts and brainpower on the things you can’t control. Grab a notebook or/and make a diary. Separate your daily tasks into repetitive tasks and thinking tasks. Then create processes and routines for the repetitive tasks. You’ll be thrilled with the time and brain space you just found. Evaluate each day with a diary.
4. Create the right circle.
Hanging out with the wrong people can deplete your energy with every visit. Their inner weakness can suck the life from your inner core. Build your world with others who are strong inside. Keep company with those who celebrate you and feed positive energy into your life. Be brutal and protective about the company you keep. One sour person can take down the whole community.
5. Gain control of your body.
It’s tough to feel strong inside if you are unhealthy outside. Make a strong effort to be fit and attractive. Eat well, exercise, and dress in a way that makes you feel good about yourself. Be proactive about your health, and you can use your body to strengthen your soul. I gain much of my strength from Spantan Races, OCR, Nature Crossfit, kayaking, running, mountainbiking, soccer and yoga. Make yourself feel good when you look in the mirror and you’ll start the day feeling powerful.
6. Give yourself a good home.
When you can’t go home and relax at night, you begin every day with a weak start. Get your house in order. If your relationship is bad, fix it or end it. If the kids are out of control, work with professionals to right the ship or send them off to boarding school. Make sure you live in a home that makes you feel happy and proud. Your home should be a safe haven that is worth working and fighting for.
7. Connect with the source of your power.
Regardless of your religion or belief, you can gain inner strength by connecting with your spiritual source. Through prayer, meditation, or simply deep thought, you can center yourself in the universe and understand your role in something bigger and worthy. Connect your core with the world around you, and greatly amplify your inner strength.
