Merriam-Webster Dictionary definition: (adj.) 1. having great power, prestige, or influence. 2. leading to many or important deductions.

Powerful and inner growth: A look at what you view as powerful brings about inner growth as you become aware of the things or people that influence you, that you consider important, that are a determining factor to something else, and explore the feeling of when you experience something or someone to be powerful.
Powerful and inner growth action steps:
- In-depth self-exploration questions: What do I see as powerful in my life? How am I powerful? Who was the first powerful person I met that made me reflect on the way I use the term and where or who I apply it to? How do I gauge what is powerful and what is not? Has my definition of powerful changed in time and how? What are some of my biggest takeaways from being around powerful people or situations?
- List or word bubble: Make a list or word bubble with powerful at the center and then list or put around it all the words that come to mind associated with it. Now think of the first time you thought of yourself as powerful and use the words from your list to write about this moment. Next write with the same words about the first person you thought of powerful and if that person (type of person) is still someone you see as powerful today.
- Bring your awareness to your feelings about powerful situations, people, or things and notice how your emotions change depending on what you’re thinking about. Focus on those thoughts that provoke a unique emotional response in what you feel and the way your emotions flow. Notice if there are any similarities between specific powerful thoughts and these change in feelings.
