What Is Self-Empowerment?
So, what is self-empowerment? I believe it is a powerful tool that can make you more self-aware, purposeful and lead you on a clearer and more focused path toward your goals. Let me now share with you what self-empowerment means to me so that you know how to use your Empowerment Journal on your self-empowerment journey.
What You Need To Understand About Self-Empowerment In Order To Use Your Empowerment Journal
1. Self-Empowerment Means Being Self-Aware
A key component of being self-empowered means that you need to be self-aware. When you are self-aware and understand yourself better, you are able to weigh your options in life with more knowledge and make better and wiser choices. When you are able to make better choices, you are also able to achieve what you want in life more easily.
How do you then become more self-aware? In order to become more self-aware, you need to get in touch with your feelings and thoughts and also connect yourself to the world around you. You need to make time to do this and get in touch with yourself and self-reflect on what you want in life.
When you pay attention to your feelings and thoughts regularly, you will be able to make better and more informed decisions and this will then help you reach your goals faster and achieve more of what you want in life easier. You will also be able to better control your reactions, responses, and impulses and learn how to better deal with conflicts.
Once you are more self-aware, you will make more deliberate choices and know clearly what you want and do not want to do. This aids you in reaching your goals faster and become more successful quicker.
2. Self-Empowerment Means Being Absolutely Clear On What You Want In Life
Being self-empowered means having absolute clarity about what you want in life. It means that you will take the time to think and rethink things so that you are crystal clear about your desires and goals.
Often, people get caught up in their daily lives and their desires in life seem selfish or unrealistic because they are so wound up in their daily lives that they cannot see themselves as their ideal desirable selves.
Thus, it is important that you always set some time aside every day for your journal and self-reflection so that you become more self-aware as a human being.
When you self-reflect and become clear on what you want in life and share your self-reflections with the people around you, you empower yourself to make changes that can make your life better.
When you have focus and clarity on what you want, you will be in the driving seat of your life and will be able to steer control of your life in the right direction that it’s meant to head.
3. Self-Empowerment Means Setting Realistic Goals And Pursuing Them With Courage And Focus
The self-empowerment journey starts by setting goals because when you set goals, you will have a clear path to follow toward your success. When you are clear on what you want in life, you will feel more motivated and inspired to do exactly what you need to do to get there. You will need to write down goals that you want to achieve, track your progress with these goals and then stick with them.
You will need to think about how you can reach these goals and the resources available to you to reach these goals. You may think of the fastest way to reach these goals but do not skimp on hard work my friend because I firmly believe that you will need to work hard and work smart in order to become successful.
When you set goals, you also need to be clear about your limitations and what you can and cannot do within a certain time frame. Part of being self-empowered means you know how to set realistic goals that you can reach and you know how to reach them. I say “realistic goals” because there is no point in setting goals that are so far out of reach that you lose courage and faith in trying to reach them.
If you have a big goal you want to achieve, first break it down into smaller goals that you can achieve bit by bit. Do not try to reach for the sky in one go, stay focused and proceed steadily and step-by-step.
For example, your goal is to get promoted to district manager in your company but so far you have been performing badly at work. If this is indeed your goal, then you need to break it down into smaller goals, such as the following:
Try your best to improve your work performance so that you will get acknowledged as a good employee. Do not get stressed by this and think that you need to become the ideal employee overnight. Do a bit more at work each day to gain recognition. Just imagine this scenario, if you perform a bit better daily and you do this consistently for 30 days, your work improvement will have improved by 30 times in 30 days! Slowly but surely often helps people reach their goals.
Improve your relationships with your colleagues at work and help them out whenever you can so that you have people who can and will back you in your promotion. You need not get everyone on your side instantly. Be sincere with your colleagues as much as you can and your sincerity will be rewarded handsomely.
4. Empower Yourself Through Education And Learning
When you want to be self-empowered, it is also important for you to stay on top of your learning and be proactive in learning new things every day. If you learn new things daily, you will be empowering yourself with an education that you can apply in your life and maximize your potential. Learning new things helps you broaden your mind, sharpen your skills, solve problems faster and move toward your goals faster.
Thus, always stay on top of your learning and continually improve yourself. Learning more things and skills also helps you see things from different perspectives and aids you in problem-solving etc.
One of the best ways to continually improve yourself is through personal development. I upload plenty of resources for my Positivity and Self-Care Club members here, check them out now!
Good Luck With Using Your Empowerment Journal For Your Self-Empowerment Journey
Your self-empowerment journey may not be an easy one and often the road ahead will get winding and difficult to maneuver. However, do not be afraid to trudge on and be scared of failures. Rather, you should view failures as learning experiences that can empower you with more self-awareness, clarity, and knowledge.
Once you become more self-empowered, you will be more confident to face whatever gets thrown your way, and you will also become more resourceful in finding more tools to help you succeed.
I believe that with the power of your mind and self-motivation, you can achieve almost anything you want and help yourself build a better future. Harness your knowledge to help you create a better life for yourself and steer the path of success yourself so that you move toward what you really want in life.
Although there are many things in life that are not within our control, you can be in charge of your destiny better when you know what you want and move steadily toward your goals.
You have the ability to create anything you desire with the power of your mind. That’s why you need to empower yourself with self-awareness, clarity on what you want, set clear realistic goals, and learn new things daily so that you can become successful quicker and easier.
When you are self-empowered, you can feel more positive about your life and better about yourself, build better relationships, become more confident and more successful.
I hope you will find all the success in life with self-empowerment!

About Me and Let's Connect!
My name is I-Ping Yeo but I write in my alter ego Ashley Yeo cos when I first started online, I was too shy to be me. Silly! Now that my whole website and brand is built on Ashley Yeo, I am gonna stick with it (cos I am too lazy to change it and too much money has been spent on Ashley Yeo) and spread some sweet cheer!
I am a previously jaded ex-lawyer and now positively charged mompreneur who founded AshleyYeo.com. Ashley Yeo is a “fictional” character who is very different from me in personality. I am formal and boring while Ashley Yeo attempts to live a bit more dangerously but within acceptable boundaries.
I produce and publish content under my brand Ashley Yeo. I produce content mainly about homeschooling, education, digital and online learning, self-care, gratitude, ikigai (Japanese term for “reason to be”), infectious happiness strategies, passion, positivity, planning, and productivity for moms. And I also share boss girl e-commerce strategies I am testing, and resources I am using, on my own small boss girl indie business.
I conjure seriously juicy journals, notebooks, planners, coloring stuff, printables, and pretty kawaii products out of love, peaches, and cream.
I am the author and publisher of the "Big Grateful Heart: 52 Week Gratitude Journal". This is one of my best-selling gratitude journals, and it was a number 1 new release on Amazon as well as on several of Amazon's Top 100 bestseller lists.
I especially love to produce premium printables complementary to your homeschool curriculum, and for your family's positivity and self-care.
