It’s Empowerment Week in Birmingham, a leading city for advancing freedoms associated with Veterans Day and Human Rights (Freedom of Liberty and Rights). Other cities also support the concept of “empowerment.” Life Leaders has been teaching and helping people earn empowerment since 1992.
Life Leaders hosted the “Earning Empowerment” Seminar September 10 and provided a workbook, with this message included:
Freedom to Flourish
Others provided your Freedom of Liberty.
Others provided your Freedom of Rights.
Now, you have Freedom to Flourish.
Will you plan to earn empowerment to flourish at your callings?
From the Declaration of Independence to D-Day and since,
patriots at war and at home have served, fought if necessary, and sacrificed for
Freedom of Liberty and of Human Rights
at home and around the world.
Many have marched for war, peace, and rights.
You have more freedom.
What will you do to honor sacrifices of those before you and opportunities in front of you?
The more you internalize how and why to earn empowerment
the more you will seek to prepare and to serve in addition to receive.
You are the one who must choose if you want to honor the sacrifices that provided your freedoms and if you want to prepare for opportunities to earn empowerment.
Most people say they “know” that plans with goals help us do our best. Yet, only an estimated 2-5% of people have written a plan for life of the length of a high school paper. [Most schools do not yet include this best practice, though we seek to help them.]
If you pause for a moment to consider the WWII veteran who faced machine guns on “D Day” to provide freedom of liberty and human rights, are you willing to state you are not willing to assess your attitude and ability needed to earn more empowerment and outline a plan to develop self and your ability to serve?
Earning empowerment is part preparation for trust to get opportunities from a leader or society and part honoring others who elevated us above focusing on survival and safety.
You can learn how, plan for, and take action to earn empowerment.
You will earn more self-respect that you are living closer to your best-self.
Society will more likely reward you with trust and opportunity
because you developed your attitude and ability to serve in anticipation of the call.
This workbook is for those who choose to act or at least to learn more of what it takes to earn empowerment as a true professional.
