The Oxford Dictionary defines ‘power’ as,
‘The ability or capacity to do something or act in a particular way; the capacity or ability to direct or influence the behaviour of others or the course of events; a person or organisation that is strong or influential within a particular context, and to direct (something, especially a ball) with great force.’
Now just imagine that you possess this power. What does it feel like?
Now that you’re feeling the ‘power’ imagine your business is already worth tens of millions of pounds, and that you have overcome all barriers and challenges that may have presented themselves to successfully build it. How does that feel?
To have ‘power’ is in part about gaining control; possibly of the course of your company’s growth and future and/or harnessing a ‘great force’ to direct activities as you wish: it is also about gaining control of the mind!

“Pretend to be completely in control and people will assume you are.”
Nolan Bushell, Founder of Atari
“I am the greatest, I said that even before I knew I was.”
“All I knew is that I never wanted to be average.”
“I planned my success. I knew it was going to happen.”
