Do you have more problems than solutions? If an obstacle presents itself, do you spend more time on the solution or the obstacle? Who do you look to in solving your problems?
Empowered people solve their own problems and don't blame their challenges on anyone or anything. Challenges are opportunities to learn and become self empowered and self empowerment is a journey. Many, if not most tend to look to the government to solve their problems and if you do, the solving is just not going to take place. The most important part of self empowerment is the start of the journey and it must start someplace. I suggest starting with wellness and well being. Check out "The Journey Of Wellness", a good start. Butch
