In the personal development space, one of the biggest breakthrough’s we experience is when we are able to reclaim our power.
There are 3 levels to this reclamation process and if we miss one, the whole path crumbles.
At the first level:
We realise we havebeen giving our power to somebody else. Perhaps a person, or an organisation…more likely someone of influence in our lives. This passing of power is often identified as one of the following:
Keeping the other person happy at the expense of your happiness
Ensuring rapport is maintained by appearing ‘less-than´ the other person
Using self-depreciating humour to stay humble and by-pass the tall poppy syndrome (common vernacular in Australia for someone who stands out being cut down, back to the size of the consensus.)
