Popularity 7Viewed 6562 times 2014-1-3 06:48 |System category:Life

Truly powerful people are people who haven't become that way because of relationships or favortism. They are people who possess the heart and soul to live wisely, think intelligently, love deeply and achieve greatly. Not based on something given to them, but, based on their own character, talents and life experience. Here are 8 things that truly powerful people believe.

1. They believe in themselves - Truly powerful people understand their own power and personal capacity for making the world a better place. They have faith in their abilities and in their power to affect others around them.

2. They believe in doing things that others won't do - Truly powerful people are often considered 'strange' or 'odd'. They aren't like everyone else. They think differently and do differently. 

3. They believe in the potential of other people - Truly powerful people are great only because they have the capacity and courage to make you feel that you are great too.

4. They believe in the spiritual - This doesn't mean that they are religious. In fact, often they aren't religious at all. But, they ARE spiritual. They know that there is an unseen world that is affecting their lives and is affecting this world. They don't just believe, but they truly know that there are spiritual principles that govern all of life. 

5. They believe that people are basically good - Truly powerful people are aware and awakened people. They look at the world and see what is good about it. They especially look at other people and see the good in them.

6. They believe that change should be initiated - Truly powerful people don't sit around waiting on change to happen. They are initiators and instigators of change. They affect change to make life better.

7. They believe that love is the most powerful force on the planet - Some may disagree with this belief, but even in the most direst situations, you will find love. Love can't be wiped out from life. It will always endure longer than anything evil.

8. They believe that the future will be better than the present - Truly powerful people possess the power of hope. Hope keeps them going. Faith keeps them active. They imagine a better tomorrow and expect it.

It is difficult to believe in all 8. Especially in #1 the self.

Slightly not sure about item 7. This love should not be narrowly defined as something only between a man and a woman. To me, it is more or less similar to benevolence.
