The Empowered person has reclaimed complete ownership of their state of mind, being, all that they do and all of the consequences of their actions. They recognise that it is only in taking complete responsibility for themselves that they can live the empowered life.
The Empowered person acknowledges that everything is just an idea, discovered or created by a person with perceptions just as flawed as their own. Ideas followed are chosen wisely.
Everyone wants to change the world, and yet so few are willing to change themselves. It is only in changing the self that their world will be changed.
