Truly powerful individuals are those who do not feel the need to do the following:
and the like
Truly powerful individuals do not care what others are doing or thinking. They are so tuned into who they are and their worthiness, that all the things that they desire from the world and others naturally and easily fall into place for them.
When you come across people who feel they have to force their views on others or argue their point and feel like they have to lie, cheat and steal, along with everything listed above, then you know that they are disconnected and unknowing of who they truly are.
When you come across people who are relaxed and calm and ultimately comfortable in their skin then you have come across someone who is confident about who they are and knowing that the world revolves around them. Now, you might say, "Well, they are selfish and pretentious." But, they are right to feel this way about themselves because when you feel like the world revolves around you (which doesn't take away from anyone else because everyone creates their own reality) it only adds to who you are and brings you more of what you want. Most people are jealous of others who always get what they want and who are happy.
Instead of being jealous and hateful towards those who you think have more than you or who you think are happier than you, why not practice self-love and remember that you, too, are worthy of fulfilling all of your desires and that no one gets in the way of that but you? You are a powerful individual who is deserving of everything your heart desires.
Enjoy your journey to wholeness.
