Why Are We So Afraid of Power?

What scares us most about financial success is not that we may fall short, but that we may actually take flight.

I see it in so many women. I saw it myself.  We’re terrified to discover that we might be ‘powerful beyond measure.’ And for good reason.

When we claim our power, we raise the stakes. Power insists we become responsible adults, the primary authority in our life…autonomous, accountable, and as singer/songwriter Helen Reddy crooned, “too big to ignore.”

    I see and feel a bit if both in me. Challenging yourself is fun- to an extent. Finally dropping the roles we’ve somehow been assigned and discovering our true potential is incredibly exciting and frightening at the same time. With all that being said, I feel blessed to have finally started this journey.

    I’m smiling 😊. The truth you know sets you free. Thanks for the validation!

    Makes me smile. Who wouldn’t want to be the primary authority in their life? Does require making a few responsible decisions everyday though and not living in la la land too much.
