Power And How to Attain it

Countless numbers of men and women have always desired power to control, to rule and be in charge of their environment include the ability to influence and control others. The attainment of power has proven difficult, but many still yearn for it. For century men have been hypnotized by the concept of power and many have been striving to attain it even since. Power is in some way associated with the desire of Greed or Ambition because without this desire power would not exist.

Power seem like an Impossible strong position and it is a status that by means that can be used to control others and have them fear you, plus it is the most special attainment that one can acquire in this world since it will enable you to control the people that control finance, industries, cities include information and much more.

Politics and Social Science are two branches of the structure of power and they are roads to venture on for the attainment of this destination. Those who are seeking power should take either transportation into consideration in order to attain their life path.

Politics is the practice or theory of influencing other people and Social Science is the academic discipline concern with society and the relationship with individuals within society. Where did the man get this desire from? It didn’t just come about one day from the bite of a mosquito or because someone stepped on their foot the other day.

Since the time God gave man power over women and the animals in the famous Garden of Eden, the woman managed to shift the balance of power or upset the apple cart with just her influence and a bite of the forbidden fruit. From the ancient time, women have extended their influence through the world and the power struggle surfaced over this prize Thorpe called the woman. Battles were fought and kingdoms have fallen through men desire to attain them. After basking in the success of acquiring women, the men centered their attention on the acquiring of mortal things in order to provide comfort for the well-being of women under their care.

Today men and women alike have acquired vast external power in various capacities under the branch of Social Science in the field of crime, business, education, and more, plus the branch of Politics which has emerged as another popular power base for others.

To acquire power one do not normally walking it by accident, however, this has been known to happen to a number. For example, a simple Joe invested in the purchase of a lotto ticket and lady luck was on his side. He attained several Millions of dollars from the winning and the taste of power was upon his lips. The famous old saying is, “He who has the Gold Rules”. However, this is partly correct because he who focuses on money alone will be like a house of card that come tumbling down, but he who make power his aim will build a strong foundation of stones.

A person can own massive millions of dollars and flies left and right to New York, Paris, New Zealand or any corner of the world includes owning a number of magnificent yachts or a Castle in Scotland. Despite the amount of wealth owned he can be extremely powerless since power is not about what one has but what one can do with what one owns. Powerful people run things such as a country, a city, an Industries, markets or Innovations. Therefore, control is true power when it is achieved and your destiny is placed in your hands. To build a foundation of stone one need to create the careful plan and then execute it. Power in the hands of anyone without a plan is dangerous. Therefore, the first rule is to plan.

However, power is not attained at the drop of a hat, it has to be achieved through work with the enormous amount of patience.

• Resourceful is to be mastered and if you are resourceful you will be able to stand strong on your feet and find a solution to the immediately, troubling issues such as your social wellbeing. Build a resource of a network by connecting with people in various places. Strong connections are vital to power.

• Confidence is to be maintained at all times and the projection of invincibility with an iron will be displayed to all that you are not afraid to fail at whatever you undertake or confront.

• Knowledge needs to be attained and one does not necessarily need a degree for this attainment. Just ensure that you possess sufficient knowledge on certain issues that rule the world such as politics, science, finance, economics or any common things, because the more one knows the more people require your help and by so doing you demonstrate your power.

• Dependency is to be avoided at all cost because it is a sign of weakness. Never make or act like you need to depend on others for money, support, love, comfort, self-confidence, encouragement etc., always be mentally strong.

• Shock Proof is to be mastered so that when certain social disaster strike such as the loss of money or slight problems includes big ones. Your position should be unmovable with patients without panic, feel bad or loss of sleep. Absorbing bad news and another disturbing element without falling apart.

• Dressing for Power is vital because clothes make the man and if you ever want to be taken seriously, it is important to dress like a professional, then you won’t have to appear to be demeaning, strict, power hungry or bossy, because the outward appearance will display what is evolving to be the expected look. Always maintain professionalism because power is professional, therefore always dress to command authority.

• Speak with Authority and Power because the way you speak matters and If you don't sound like you expect respect, you might not get it. Fortunately, you don't need to be a natural leader to speak with authority, or the king of self-esteem to speak with confidence. With a little practice, anyone can begin to speak with authority and confidence.

• Learn to manufacture ideas so that you can become a master problem solver by depending on the use of six friends that you have at your disposal and their names are; what, why, when, how, where and who. They will help you, guide you, advise you, instruct you about who to contact and how to go about getting certain things done and much more. Let them serve you all the way to the top in all your activities.

Now it is time for action in order to advance toward your journey of attaining Power. Remember, he who does nothing, will achieve nil, plus nothing will happen, therefore in order to make something happen, one should take action so develop the action habit. There are many paths to attain power, so it is best you figure out how and where you want to go include which route you intend to take.

Here are a few lists of actions that anyone can undertake to achieve their goal of power.

• Join a political party

• Become an Entrepreneur and build a corporation

• Join a firm as a Manager and work your way up to the top with the goal to attain power in mind.

• Join the Military

• Become a Computer Hacker

• The list is endless and you have gotten the picture

If you succeed at becoming a powerful person then please use it to help the helpless and you will be happy and well rewarded. However, if you use it to hurt others, you will hurt yourself in return. Power is best used to help mankind and the strong foundation that you built will be remembered as your legacy when you are gone from this life. I wish you more power and success, cheer.
