The most powerful gift you can give yourself is the gift of growth and transformation so that you, not others, have the power in deciding what it is that you want for your life.
When you give yourself the permission to put yourself first and invest in your dreams, you start to trust yourself, own your decisions, needs and desires. You stop so much as second-guessing yourself and instead own who you are and what you believe in.
In my work as clinical psychologist and mentor, I’ve seen my clients transition into loving relationships, meaningful careers, improved health, increased confidence, greater risk taking, ownership of decision-making and a feeling of empowerment when they said yes to their personal transformation.
To be an empowered human being is to dare to put yourself first so that you can make a positive change in your life as well as the lives of others. This is not selfish.
