Personal power is the ability to change from negative to positive habits. Desire is a key factor to consider when looking at the ability to change a pattern of failure to one of success. Personal Power is also a measure of the ability to focus your attention in a way that enables you to navigate through conflicting desires. One of the most effective ways to develop personal power is to break energy-wasting habits that don’t serve you and your goals. As you gain a small degree of personal power, you can use it to break other energy draining habits. Empowered living means you are in control of your life and feel respected, aware of the challenges you face, loved, making a positive contribution. For most of your days you are motivated, excited and upbeat about what's in front of you.


Owen an expert on Wellbeing came highly recommended to me as Principal. After speaking to him briefly I was captivated and emotionally moved by his life story of resilience and optimism. I invited him to talk to the three senior classes and to the staff. During these sessions he gave a personal account of his own story and highlighted strategies that he uses to support develop and maintain his wellbeing. The staff and children were extremely impressed with his positive attitude to life.
