Obstacle 80: Power

“Nearly all men can withstand adversity, but if you want to test a man’s character, give him power.” ~Abraham Lincoln

Power puncuates possibilities.  The more power you have, the more responsibility you tend to carry.  But, the greater your ability to handle power, the greater the possibility.  Anything is possible when you believe you have the power to do great things.

“Power is nothing unless you can turn it into influence.” ~Condeleeza Rice

What great things would you do if you were told you had the power to do them? What is your power/character trait? Would having power make you different? Do you value power as a means to enrich or would you assert power to abuse, manipulate or intimidate?

The answers to these questions are already within you. Exercise your power, magnify its influence. Maintain a luminous character.  Always know yourself, then you will not be dissuaded by power.

Magnify your power.
