Empowerment is regarded as a desirable state to be attained, however, it’s good to first know how to empower ourselves before being empowered. Having powers over one’s life is what may be proper meaning of the term to be empowered, however, this power above his life does not overlap the other people’s power over their lives, it’s having the maturity to be oneself in the midst of others. Living in a self-dependency way and being able to realize that your responsibilities are your basics to take care of, and being self-dependant though not ignoring others and making yourself as an island but it’s to co- exist with respect with all other people.
Truth is always the best weapon, empowerment starts in our lives when we start by accepting our truth this is to mean we accept who we rely are, once our accept that and start living as per that truth already we have empowered ourselves a bit. When thinking of empowerment training courses there are some issues that one needs to understand that they rely hinder us from becoming fully empowered once we arable to understand them we can be able to know how to overcome them. Social conditioning in the current world set up is one of the major obstacles to self-empowerment, that explains why we easily give our powers to institution that is by regarding such institutions as having final obsolete knowledge and should not be questioned.
Low esteem is another major contributing factor to failure to attain empowerment, having self-doubts, lack to appreciate one’s self, and low self-esteem, all this will block our way of becoming empowered. Lack of understanding one’s self is yet another factor that makes people not to reach their potential in empowerment, this is because one hardly understands himself, therefore, one can’t even know his power. Another worse enemy to realizing full potential in our empowerment is fear, it holds us back and we lack the required energy to attain the required empowerment this is due to the fact that for one to reach potential empowerment his energy must flow freely , fear does not make that possible.
Empowerment can not be reached if one is not knowledgeable ,lack of knowledge is yet another factor that highly hinders empowerment, but with correct knowledge one has chances of being empowered and not only does he empower himself but also he adds knowledge to his store.
