Freedom or Power?
“Freedom is actually a bigger game than power. Power is about what you can control. Freedom is about what you can unleash.”
~ Harriet Rubin
When you get right down to it, the greatest and most effective power we exert is actually over ourselves. While having power may allow us to determine courses of action and think we are controlling them, exercising power also imposes limitations and thereby restricts the options that can be pursued. We can choose to limit or be negative in thinking about ourselves and our capacity and that of others, or we can give ourselves and others the freedom to think positively about reaching our potential. Allowing the space for creativity and responsibility is liberating and opens up a realm of possibilities and opportunities.
