Power, Part One: Holding On

Power and control are very intoxicating. We read of power-hungry dictators, we know or claim to be control-freaks, and we admire or sometimes dismiss the megalomaniacs that have founded and run some of the most impressive companies in the world.

In the lives of most of us we are not third-world dictators or CEOs of the world's best-known conglomerates, but we deal with power and control daily. Hard feelings happen when someone loses control or it appears to be taken away. It's like a friend has been taken away from you or in some more extreme cases, like your street gang has been captured and put in jail. You're all alone and less powerful.

The more you hold onto power, the less powerful you are, It diminishes you. Power is a result of what you do, not the goal of what you do.
