The watchword to enablers is to be watchful as to who they empower as power is nothing without control and it is important only to bestow power on those who are able to use it in a positive way and manner.

The famed British historian, Lord Acton, commented on the loss of morality coming upon those who are powerful and stated succinctly that ‘power corrupts and absolute power corrupts absolutely’.

Having and possessing power is like a two edged sword and it can either build us up or destroy us completely without mercy and that is why before wanting to acquire power a person must acquire as much wisdom and knowledge to handle it.

History rankles with accounts of how people have been consumed and destroyed by the power they sought and this is why a person who seeks empowerment must do so with the right aim and objective.

Those with power must be willing to serve and help others to become better off in life and this is the crux of power which is to share progress, peace and prosperity with all others in an altruistic way.

While there is absolutely nothing wrong with acquiring and seeking power, it is important to realize that power must not be used to corrupt us or others but to support one another and to help make this world a better place.
