Refresh your Career 3: How healthy is your personal power?


I would like you to consider your personal power on a scale of 1 to 10.  Let’s use the analogy of the sun, how much can you radiate, how much heat do you have?

Personal power is the way you walk into a room.  Do you own the space around you?  You can tell somebody with low personal power.  They are breathy when they talk because they don’t believe they have the right to suck up any air in the room.  To speak is to suck air in.  If you don’t breathe and draw in enough breath you can’t speak up and speak out.  Their shoulders are hunched slightly, because they are trying to unconsciously take up less room by becoming physically smaller.

If you were asked to interrupt a meeting, could you just knock on the door, walk in, say excuse me and take a seat with no excuses.  Or would you be a little bit sheepish coming in, a little bit concerned that you are upsetting people or interrupting people?  When you enter a room, it is a great indicator of your natural setting for your personal power.

In my coaching practice, we work around this idea of power, and ensure you own your own space and feel comfortable in your own skin.  As there’s a whole bunch of issues that go along with not having enough power.  My mission is to work with women to make sure that they are radiating as much heat as they can, so that people notice them and success follows.  It is a great skill to have and one of the key essential characteristics for success.

If you haven’t got a lot of personal power you tend to not get a lot of promotions, people tend not to notice you, it is quite easy to be invisible, you tend to people please, with an inability to say no and a general lack of confidence.

Send a very clear message to the unconscious mind that you want to have access to as much of your power as possible. You can always go to the next level on power, it is one of those life skills that you can always grow and develop.  When you are ready, discuss some strategies for increasing your personal power.

Have fun radiating your unique power heat, as this is how you magnetise people to you.  People with high personal power are very attractive and interesting to others.  You attract opportunity, people, help and support from having healthy personal power.

How much personal power do you have access to?
