Ah, power. We all want it. Its siren song escapes no one. Problem is, a lot of us say we want power but we’ve bungled up the goal and are missing it altogether.
For most of us, we think of it as the power to be, to do and to have what we want. It’s the power to control our unruly ourselves and the chaotic world of outcomes. We want power over things, people and circumstances. We want domination.
Power like this is not power at all. It’s force.
