Are you Empowering or Enabling the people in your life?

A big question each and every one of us needs to ask ourselves these days is: Am i really helping this person or am i enabling a negative pattern?


What does this exactly mean though? Empowering someone means you are there for support, you are there to listen but you don’t necessarily jump in to save or rescue the person all the time, empowering means sometimes standing back and trusting an individual to find their own way in managing their life.


This is where enabling comes in, I hear this day after day after day, how certain people just do not have their boundaries in place to say NO, I know its is so so hard to say no to friends, family members or even ex-spouse’s when a situation arises where they need rescuing, help or manipulation is in play. You need to know you are NOT helping a person if you constantly have to tell them what to do, you constantly have to give money that never gets paid back, or you do not consider your own time and space and energy in helping them. A good example is grandmothers looking after their grandchildren. In all those situations the person who is asking you for the favor is not taking responsibility for their actions, lives or situation, and by always helping, saying YES or rescuing they become dependant on your help which enables this bad pattern of not taking responsibility.


Rather Empower, start saying NO, stop giving advice and listen more, stop giving money and stand back, stop always helping and listen to your own needs, you won’t only start helping yourself but you will empower that person to take control, in the long term Empowering someone and standing back helps them much more than enabling and always jumping in, in the short term.


These boundaries that need to be set are not easy and you may not always feel good about it in the moment, people will be angry with you and sometimes you will be tested over and over again, but the more you realize that you have the power to help someone by just standing back, you may find it easier to do the more you practise. 🙂

How to Achieve Mental Strength

ITS hard to achieve mental strength when you feel stuck. The ability to break the mould and take a bold new direction requires extra input, courage, determination and perseverance. These kinds of qualities only the mentally strong have!!

Mentally strong people are:


To fully understand and tolerate strong negative emotions and do something productive with them takes mental strength. Moments that test your mental strength are ultimately testing your emotional intelligence. Your emotional intelligence is in fact flexible and can be improved where IQ is not.


Your mentality has a powerful effect on your ability to succeed. THIS is a fact.

“when you think, you can, or think you can’t – you are right {Henry Ford}

Confidence inspires others and helps them to make things happen.


Mentally strong people are flexible and are constantly adapting and growing with circumstances. They know that fear of change is paralyzing and a major threat to their success and happiness.

Only when you embrace change can you find the good in it.


The more difficulty you have to say NO the more likely you are to experience stress, burn out or depression.

Saying NO is healthy, self-affirming and builds good self-esteem.


Mentally strong people take charge of their interactions with toxic people by keeping their emotions in check.

Not letting anger or frustration fuel the chaos is of utmost importance.

They find solutions to problems and try and find common ground at all times.

It’s important to take a toxic person with a grain of salt to avoid letting him or her bring them down.


Where we focus, our attention will determine our emotional state. When you focus on action to better yourself and your circumstances, you create a sense of personal efficacy.

THEY DON’T COMPARE THEMSELVES TO OTHERS. Everyone has something to offer and one does not have to take other people down a notch to feel good about themselves.


The road to success is paved with failure and with the experience of failure one can see a solution that you have been missing. Frustration always forces you to think differently….”out of the box”.


People with mental strength that exercise at least 2x per week rate their body image and self-esteem higher and it keeps you strong and healthy.


Quality sleep is a priority for better strength, motivation, health and stamina and mental wellbeing …in general for all of our wellbeing.


Mentally strong people don’t get caught up in things they can’t control like the weather or a war of famine…etc but they focus their energy on things within their power.
