Power

Some say "knowledge is power "
And some say "power is with whom power lies"
And there are others who say "power is where man believes power lies"

So ultimate question what is power?

Power by definition:

In physics, "power is the rate at which energy is transferred, used, or transformed. The unit of power is the joule per second (J/s), known as the watt"

Power is frequently defined by political scientists as the ability to influence the behavior of others with or without resistance. The term authority is often used for power perceived as legitimate by the social structure. Power can be seen as evil or unjust, but the exercise of power is accepted as endemic to humans as social beings. In the corporate environment, power is often expressed as upward or downward. With downward power, a company's superior influences subordinates. When a company exerts upward power, it is the subordinates who influence the decisions of the leader (Greiner & Schein, 1988). Often, the study of power in a society is referred to as politics.

By dictionary power is

1. The ability or capacity to perform or act effectively.

So what is power???

For me it's all of the above and how you make use of the things around u that brings positive energy or a change . It's very important to kno how to utilise power and mainly how to excute it.

Power with a person can make him good or bad,depends on how he uses it.

People with power everyone wants to be associated with them and people with power have a huge responsibility to protect them as well as the power they have. Funny thing is it can be ripped from you if you don't know how to safe guard it.

Person with power who doesn't utilise it is equal to the person who doesn't have any powers. Power can't be over utilised as well .

Power is a thing that brings out different emotions like fear, happiness n much more.

Power is what power does.. Power is power!!
