Take responsibility for your own actions
Personal power plays an important role in how successful you will become. Although this authority is built-in, it takes time to develop. Observe the four interrelated stages of self-empowerment:

Focus on how you view yourself, not how others see you. “Deprogramming” your mind frees you to take responsibility for your own actions.

Facing the truth propels you forward and forces you to be accountable for the choices you make. Ignoring it only results in stagnation , on enemy of success.

When you value interpersonal bonds, you are mare trusting and self confident. You then become comfortable and strong enough to seek the truth in its many forms.

This requires living the truth while holding it up for continuous inspection. In so doing, you can make necessary changes without breaking your covenants with others.
Keep in mind that self-empowerment is a journey, not a destination. Learning as you go along grants you the distinct pleasure of meeting 0 new port of yourself every step of the way.
