In life we are constantly taught it is better to give than to receive. Most everyone has had a chance to experience that in one way or another. The giver of the gift is rewarded with a deep satisfaction; in some cases it outlasts the gift to the receiver. This “dual-reward” path is also true with empowerment.
Since I have become more aware of these situations, its opportunities shine even brighter. I want to remind to search- maybe even train yourself – for this whenever you are in a position where you believe you are doing the empowering. I would like to hear some stories where this has been true to you.
