It seems like almost everyone I meet today, wants to know if they are on the right track with life. How many people do you know are searching for the clues that let them know if they are on the right track in their own evolution? I believe that in order to evolve as a human being, the first step is to empower yourself. Empowerment is an inward journey. It begins and ends with you and what you are willing to do on a consistent basis to take charge of your own life.
How do you know if you are becoming an empowered individual or not? Are you claiming your power, or are you becoming a victim to circumstances as they arise? Are you in charge of your life?
From my personal observation of studying high achievers in life, I have found that there is a common denominator that they all share. This common denominator they all share comes in the form of 7 clues that are high indicators that a person is indeed living an empower life.
I will share these 7 clues that make up an empowered individual. Although you don’t need all 7 to be considered to be an empowered individual, I would say from my observation, that if you score 4 out of 7 means you are on the right track. Obviously, if you score 7 out of 7 you are an exceptional individual and consider yourself a highly empowered individual. A person that scores a 7 out of 7 is someone who is highly evolved and is making their mark in the world.
Keep In Mind** This list is in no particular order or to this list. There is no hierarchy to this list.** This list is to be looked as a greater whole.
