“There are two kinds of men who never amount to much: those who cannot do what they are told, and those who can do nothing else.”
— Cyrus H. Curtis
How do you relate to people in authority? Depending on your character and upbringing, you may react defensively or meekly to those you perceive to hold more power than you do.
Hierarchical power dissolves in the presence of authentic power. Your true personal power has nothing to do with status. It is determined by how attuned you are to all aspects of yourself and to the needs of others.
In any exchange with a person ‘in power,’ focus your attention on meeting your mutual needs and the relationship will be both equitable and fruitful.
“Compassion, caring, teaching, loving, and sharing your gifts, talents, and abilities are the gateways to power.”
— Jamie Sams
