“There is nothing more exhilarating than becoming Empowered to Overcome a challenge, Breakthrough a barrier, and enhance Success in our lives!”
This quote is featured on the main page of the Empowering Breakthrough website. I “words smithed” it together after spending time trying to really put into words what we felt was at the heart of the vision for Empowering Breakthrough. When these events occur in our lives the experience creates a tremendous explosion of Hope inside that galvanizes our Faith and allows us to believe that nothing is impossible! You can call it down right extraordinary, even miraculous! We have within us the ability to not only survive our challenges, but “Thrive” because of them!
Another amazing phenomenon is the Hope and Encouragement we receive when we witness another person experience their Breakthrough! It gives the notion that if another can do it, so can I! It also moves the heart in ways that few other things can. Hollywood has made a mint creating heart moving, inspirational movies that feature the characters overcoming insurmountable odds and accomplishing seemingly impossible feats. This supports the theory that spending time around positive minded individuals, doing positive things is a good idea! Also, we tend to do life better when we don’t feel alone and secluded and have positive and healthy support systems (but that is a topic for another blog).
One of the common denominators is how we decide to think, and what we decide to focus on and give authority to in our minds. This can also be called “ETP” (Empowered Thought Process). The basic idea is “Words have Power” especially when we choose to believe them. However, when we experience them, the words are no longer just a symbol or something we hope for, but when we encounter them in our difficult situations, they come to life – become internalized, taking us into a deeper place of wisdom, becoming our testimony! (another blog subject!)
Let’s look at some of these powerful words:
Empowering: Give someone the authority or power to do something. Make someone stronger and more confident, especially in controlling their life and claiming their rights.
Overcome: To prevail despite adversity, to successfully solve a problem or defeat an opponent
Breakthrough: An act or instance of moving through or beyond an obstacle. An instance of achieving success in a sphere or activity.
Success: An accomplishment of an aim or purpose.
Resiliency: A human ability to recover quickly from disruptive change or misfortune without being overwhelmed or acting in dysfunctional or harmful ways.
Thrive: To progress toward or realize a goal despite or because of circumstances. To cause to succeed.
I will conclude with this revelation. There is truth and there is greater truth. The truth is, you are resilient and have within you everything you need to “Thrive & Overcome!” You have already overcome many challenges and obstacles in your life! The greater truth is, Resilience and Breakthrough Mindset concepts can be learned and strengthened, empowering us with unlimited access to a promising hope and future! That my friends, is “Empowering Breakthrough” living!
