The Road to Power

Pessimism leads to weakness, optimism to power. – William James

When I first read this quote, I was kind of like uhhhh….I’m not so sure, but then when I gave it more thought, it started to make a lot of sense to me.  At firsts, I got caught in the trap of focusing on power. It’s not about the ruling the world type of power, it’s about the power you have to live your life, and the power and energy you have to tackle each day. Think about the times when you’re glum, and negative and in a bad mood.  How is your energy level?  Chances are, you’re energy level is way down around your ankles.  You don’t have any power,or any energy to move forward. In fact, what little power or energy you have, gets sucked right out of you by your negative emotions.  But when you’re feeling good, when you feel like you could conquer the world – you know, feeling optimistic, your energy levels soar, and you are ready to go out and try new things, and take on the world.  So try really hard to keep the pessimistic feelings at bay, and put on your optimist hat and watch the power that fills you!
