If we see each day as a cycle of growth, we can gauge how far we have come at the end of each day. By looking over the events to see where we have progressed, we can determine which areas need further growth.
Empowerment through growth can be accomplished by gaining insights as we live with awareness. Setting a series of goals and intentions in each area of life can also be helpful. Recognizing our accomplishments, big and small, can be empowering and lead to further growth through inspiration and a sense of confidence.
To be empowered causes one to stand tall, unafraid of the unknown because he has developed the robustness to face challenges.
