I have seen many complain because they feel they have no power. And yet each of us has the power within us. It is up to us to take and use that power or not.
Most people have problems understanding power because they don’t understand it. Power is not forcing people, nor is it pushing demands. The real power comes from the care and work we do for others.
People with real power are concerned for their people. Chiefs eat after their tribe is fed. Commanders’ main concerns are for the welfare of their troops. Good civic leaders care for the welfare of their constituents. These people know The real power comes from mutual care for the needs of all.
If you want real power, start by helping someone who needs it. Then, go on and help someone else. Find a mentor to help and guide you. And always be willing to assist.
Power is not found corked in a bottle or locked up in a cabinet. It is always available to those who use it wisely. Yet you need to be there to help it, for it is not sedentary.
