Power of You

Individualism Defined:

Merriam-Webster Dictionary defines individualism as “ a doctrine that the interests of the individual are or ought to be ethically paramount;also :  conduct guided by such a doctrine;  the conception that all values, rights, and duties originate in individuals b :  a theory maintaining the political and economic independence of the individual and stressing individual initiative, action, and interests; also :  conduct or practice guided by such a theory; individuality b :  an individual peculiarity :  idosyncrasy.”


Power of You:

Everyone is unique in their own special, individual way. It’s what separates us from each other; it’s what makes us our own individual self. If everyone was the same, we would all be boring. We would not be able to learn from one another, we would not be able to grow as an individual, and we would be too perfect, and there is no such thing as perfection. There is always opportunity to grow; there is always a chance to be different in our own unique style. If you think you are perfect, you are not growing, you are not differentiating yourself from everyone else, therefore you will never be able to change your ways because you don’t see the imperfections in your life. There will be imperfections. Being “perfect” is nonexistent. Being “imperfect” is existent. Admitting you are not perfect is a step in the right direction. Not admitting this, you are being egotistical, and not many people like egotistical people. Be you for who you are, but don’t be “perfect,” because there is no such thing.

The power of you is substantial and when you realize this, you begin to metamorphosize into an individual with high regards and who has enough self-respect to respect others. The power of you is essential in your individuality because only you know what is important to yourself. You alone are responsible for your actions, your thoughts, your words, your mind. No one else controls this but you. You can’t blame others but yourself. The power of you should never have any regrets. Past mistakes are life lessons; like failures, but every mistake, every failure, you learn from, and the more you are willing to self-accept them, the more you are willing to change, to accept that you are not as perfect as you thought you were.

In Conclusion:

Your individuality is within your power. Use it wisely, intelligently, and accordingly. The power of you is best known as SELF-ACCEPTANCE and SELF-DISCOVERY, and when you come to realize you have this power within yourself, you will find you are more worthy of yourself and value yourself more. You will want to find people like this, and the more you find this type of crowd, you know you will belong, because you all have the same goals and desires. The power of you lies within. If you have not yet discovered this power inside yourself, admit when you are wrong, admit past failures and mistakes, apologize to those who you may have hurt in the process, and remain your strong willed self that you know you can be. Because that’s when your individuality will shine through, your individualism can never be swayed, and the most powerful you has come forth. It is in you. You have to find it first. And when you start to believe in all that you are and all that you do, and you know you will never be perfect, you know you have found that power within you. It’s called THE POWER OF YOU.
