Fear of othersThe author of the following Empowering Quote is John Wooden, an American Basketball Coach:

Be more concerned with your character than your reputation, because your character is what you really are, while your reputation is merely what others think you are.

All too often we place too much importance on what people think about us. It’s understandable when we’re at high school because we’re under so much pressure to conform, but once we are adults, we have the ability to choose whether we take other peoples’ opinions to heart or not.

When we are truly empowered, when we are confident in our self, it’s much easier to ignore others and concentrate on being who we are. That’s what self-empowerment is: the ability to be our self and be free of the judgements and attitudes of others. It’s the only way we can be truly free.
