5. Creating an Empowering State: Fueling Positive Actions

Before proceeding, I encourage you to review my previous article on discovering the power of a strong why. Building a vision board or writing a letter from your future self can provide clarity and serve as a daily reminder of your desired destination.


The Importance of an Empowering State

Once you have a clear goal, the next step is to create an empowering state that will fuel you to take the necessary actions daily. When you are feeling low on energy or in a depressed state, it can be challenging to motivate yourself to make positive changes. The comfort of familiarity often keeps us from venturing outside our comfort zones. Breaking through this pattern requires courage and dedication.


Anchoring: A Technique for Creating an Empowering State

Anchoring is a mental technique I utilize with my clients to establish an empowering state. One effective method is using Tony Robbins’ priming exercise meditation (https://youtu.be/faTGTgid8Uc). You can utilize any meditation video that has helped you cultivate an empowering state. However, I suggest giving this particular video a try to familiarize yourself with the process. This meditation helps you recall and relive moments in your life when you felt powerful, loved, and grateful—high-energy states that we seek to cultivate. By intentionally cranking up the intensity of these empowering emotions to at least 7/10, you can anchor them to a specific body movement, such as squeezing your left hand. Repeat this practice every morning and revive the experience throughout the day by squeezing your left hand for 2 minutes in the afternoon and evening. With consistent practice for 21 days, this empowering state becomes ingrained.



Applying the Empowering State

Now, let’s explore how to apply the empowering state in practical situations. Picture this: you’ve scheduled a gym session after work, but fatigue and lack of motivation start to weigh you down. In that very moment, employ the anchor technique to shift into your empowering state, enabling you to take decisive action. With consistent practice, you will gradually find yourself spending more time each day in this empowering state, until it becomes an integral part of your identity. It requires effort, but the rewards are undoubtedly worth it.



Creating an empowering state is crucial for fueling positive actions and making meaningful changes in your life. By utilizing anchoring techniques and consistently practicing them, you can access your high-energy state whenever needed. Remember, it takes work, but the results are transformative. Embrace the power of your empowering state and let it propel you towards your goals.
