FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE / PRURGENT
Is social media turning self-empowerment into another false ideal?
Are we being overwhelmed by choice when it comes to well-being programs?
Is society robbing us of the patience to find the inner keys to self-empowerment…?
…Or are we becoming victims of our own “Amazon Prime mentality”?
Missouri City, Texas, 11/15/2021 Self-empowerment, well-being, mindfulness, be the best version of yourself. We’re being inundated with these concepts and buzzwords lately, whether it’s through social media, television self-help gurus, or corporate wellness programs.
But ironically, what can get lost in the stream of adverts for endless rounds of courses and challenges covering everything from yoga to sobriety to productivity is the very thing they are meant to empower… Ourselves!
The downside of having so much information at our fingertips is that we can be offered lots of choice but precious little in the way of answers. Just how do these courses help us to empower ourselves? And more importantly, which one is right for us at this point in our unique story? We go looking for inner peace but end up being overwhelmed by alluring slogans, beautifully filtered photographs, and “buy it now before the special offer ends” demands.
We can try hundreds of these methods, programmes, and coaches, spending thousands of dollars only to find that we become addicted to them. Why? Because, without meaning to, we fall into the trap of looking to other people for answers and validation — and so falling victim to the negative influence of social media peer pressure.
But real change — spiritual growth and healing — can only come from within. We all know this on a deep level, but the blare of algorithms, promises of quick fixes, and the speed at which we’re now told we have to live at all serve to distract us and obscure this calm, simple truth. We develop an Amazon Prime mentality: if we can’t find inner peace with free next-day delivery, we don’t want to know.
However you dress it up, all methods of self-empowerment can ultimately be reduced to the core keys of gratitude, forgiveness, acceptance, and self-love. And these keys can only be reached through meditation, mindfulness, and balancing your physical and spiritual realities. It’s that simple, but it takes time and practice.
My book, The Path to Self-Empowerment: Meditations with Grandma, explains all of this. It was officially released October 31st 2021 in Sugar Land, Texas. Rather than making the reader dependent on any external resources, it works to make itself ultimately redundant to the reader by giving them the keys to empower themselves and remain empowered.
