Would you like more power?
Is gathering influence something that you value?
You can gain that in many ways. Certainly, one way is to get promoted to a higher level job title. That does bring increased power. But, not enough, does it? You still want more. We all want more. We want as much agency and autonomy and independence as we can get.
Here's something you have absolute power over. You control this completely, and when you control it effectively it dramatically increases your power:
How you look at the world. How you feel about your self. How you apply positive principles to persistent problems.
Your attitude is more powerful than your job title.
You attitude is more powerful than any problem.
Your attitude is a great source of power for you -- when you keep it compassionate, clear, courageous, and creative.
Tap into THAT power -- it is inexhaustible.
