Live the life your soul wants

Influenced or empowered

Are you influenced by others or empowered to dance to the beat of your own tune?

I think there are words that do not mean the same to everyone for we all have programs we run from prior experience, meaning they push our buttons from our own perspective, and will not be another person’s reality, however the interesting thing about influence is those that allow themselves to be influenced by others rather than be empowered, and inspired to follow their own path don’t know themselves, so try to follow the paths of others instead.

From the time after we were born we were influenced by our families, friends, teachers and the world until we forgot who we were. If we didn’t want this we were conveniently labelled rebellious or difficult.

Because of this people often end up living a life that society dictates or ones their families prescribed for them, and often follow the paths others do for the illusion of success, comfort and security. You don’t get to shine by following the rules and the path of others. If people who want to make a difference use influence to get what they want, they can be manipulative, and come from a place of self-gratification so it’s good to be weary of those who try to influence you for personal gain, and power.

There are many people who can inspire us but I believe we must discover ourselves, gifts and path in life. Others who lift us along the way can help awaken these things in us but we are not meant to make the decisions and choices they did or do it their way.
