Power isn’t a force that can be gifted.
When you take charge, whether you own your own business or you’re ready to take responsibility in your career, it’s not that someone is gifting power to you — it’s that you’ve finally activated the power that you’ve had all along.
Waiting for permission lets that power wilt. And encouraging your teammates to do so is even worse.
Push your own power and bring your team with you. Let yourself act on instinct and follow your path. Do what your gut says.
You have the power already, after all. You just have to figure out how to use it.
