How to Make Your Personal Power a Form of Artistry

What is this thing called personal power (presence)?  Why is it important?  Hmmm.

One way to look at the idea of personal power or presence is through the thoughts of Stephen R. Covey as expressed in his book, The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People.  He said:

“…one person’s success is not achieved at the expense or exclusion of the success of others.”

I interpret that to mean strong personal relationships (in whatever form they take in life) are built through cooperative effort.  As Covey says, it takes an “abundance mentality.”

I’ll further clarify Covey’s thinking this way.

We all tend to quickly recognize in people the qualities of confidence, truth, and comfort in within one’s skin.  Those qualities absolutely draw us to other people.  It’s called “personal presence.”

Personal presence (power) is important because when the above referenced qualities are demonstrated the rest of us tend to respect, trust and follow such people.  They see us as having an “abundance mentality.”

The following video describes some of the key elements to you being able to demonstrate personal presence.

So…that’s a quick sketch of the artistry around creating personal presence.
