Absolute power corrupts absolutely
~ Great insight about the true power of having a supportive community on your side, from Libby at ClubFYM
“That is a quote I heard last night on TV.
It was about a car actually, the presenter was in absolute awe of the car’s power and how it just corrupts the driver.
This made me think about power, absolute power.
I see so many blogs, and have written a good many as well, about our sense of failure, even though we haven’t even failed yet. Everywhere I see posts and comments about having no motivation, life getting in the way, not up to it, having a bad day, having a bad week or month, dealing with difficult children or spouses or situations at work or home…..the list goes on.
Now the one thing Holly is really good at, even in bad times, is her selfless motivation and constant encouragement.
So I put the lot together US+POWER+MOTIVATION=SUCCESS!
Believe me, POWER we have!
All of us, we are all absolutely powerful women, we can change anything and everything, we can change the world!! We have the POWER. The problem is, finding the POWER on switch.
Don’t you feel sometimes like you’re just waiting for that ultimate piece of encouragement or enlightenment or words of wisdom that will change your life like a lightning bolt through the brain?
You can feel it, it’s close, the breakthrough is coming and I’m gonna be on my way to being that woman I have a picture of on my desktop!!
Well ladies, in the spirit of motivation, and maybe to give Holly a little break, I found some truly amazing, remarkable, inspiring, motivating SIMPLE words. Here follows a list ( a long list) of some inspiring quotes.
Maybe you’ll find your lightning bolt quote right here!!
The quote in the title is correct especially with us, our negative powers are corrupting us, absolutely. Maybe it’s time to turn the power in to positive power and let that corrupt us, absolutely!!”
You may delay, but time will not.
You must begin to think of yourself as becoming the person you want to be.
You must do the thing you think you cannot do.

It’s not whether you get knocked down; it’s whether you get up.
My advice is to go into something and stay with it until you like it. You can’t like it until you obtain expertise in that work. And once you are an expert, it’s a pleasure.
