Power Up Passages

Passages by Category Passages by Month

Author Title Click to read
Greg Hickman Go Outside and Play. Click Here for Passage
Description of Story: April 8, 2008.

Life should be fun; a whole of fun in fact. But sometimes our lives are anything but. After all, we deal with a lot of stuff every day that to be honest, we wished we didn't have to deal with. This annoying array of stuff can become somewhat taxing. And sometimes this stuff can squeeze the fun right out of our lives.

Greg Hickman When Is Enough Ever Enough? Click Here for Passage
Description of Story: March 23, 2008.

When is good enough really good enough? And besides, what exactly is good enough? The answers really depend a great deal on whom you ask. Since each of us is uniquely different, it's no shock that our individual perceptions of 'good enough' are, you guessed it... equally diverse.

Greg Hickman Off The Beaten Path. Click Here for Passage
Description of Story: March 20, 2008.

If there's one troubling trait many people have in common, it's a tendency to follow the crowd, to do what everyone else is doing. A quick glance around will reveal a not so surprising fact of life: the vast majority remain on the beaten path, refusing to stray very far from the rest of the pack.

Greg Hickman Singing In The Rain. Click Here for Passage
Description of Story: March 19, 2008.

Ever noticed how some people just love to rain on your parade? No matter how high you're flying, they find a way to bring you down. Regardless of how great you feel or how wonderful things are going, these folks invariably find a way to put a big time damper on your day.

Greg Hickman Lighten Up and You'll Brighten Up. Click Here for Passage
Description of Story: March 18, 2008.

Life can get pretty heavy at times. Sometimes we can handle the load, sometimes the load handles us. And sometimes the pressures and problems we face rumble right over us like a runaway steamroller.

Greg Hickman Be A Miracle. Click Here for Passage
Description of Story: March 17, 2008.

Miracles, what exactly are they? I guess that depends on who you ask. To some, a miracle is some sort of mysterious, mystifying phenomenon that only happens on very rare occasions. It's here and then suddenly... poof, it's gone. But if you ask me, I would say that miracles are common day occurrences that take place every hour of every day.

Greg Hickman Do It Anyway. Click Here for Passage
Description of Story: March 16, 2008.

You can't do it. You're not smart enough. You're not good enough. You don't have what it takes. There's no way you can make it happen. You don't have a chance. You'll never get the job done. Who hasn't heard these less than encouraging words way too many times in the past? Spoken by our friends and foes alike, these discouraging words can break us down and if we're not careful, can break us apart.

Greg Hickman Let's Get Real. Click Here for Passage
Description of Story: March 15, 2008.

REAL results. REAL fast. Seems like that's what everyone wants nowadays. Waiting for things to happen just doesn't cut the mustard in today's increasingly fast paced society. People want things fast; the faster, the better. Instant gratification is the name of the game.

Greg Hickman Challenging Yourself. Click Here for Passage
Description of Story: March 10, 2008.

Life provides no shortage of challenges that test our tenacity, that gauge the resiliency of our mettle. Seldom does a day go by that we do not encounter an array of challenges; each of varying degrees. There are big stumbling blocks and minor hurdles, large problems and smaller issues; and every one of these challenges must be dealt with daily. The way we handle these difficulties, big and small alike, goes a long way in determining the quality of the lives we ultimately lead.

Greg Hickman Reaching Your Breaking Point. Click Here for Passage
Description of Story: March 7, 2008.

Some people get all of the breaks. Ever heard that saying before? Maybe even grumbled it under your breath from time to time? Crazy as it seems, a vast majority of people actually believe that statement is true. For one reason or another, they think only a choice few receive all of the breaks while everyone else is left holding the bag; usually an empty bag at that.

Greg Hickman Disappearing Act. Click Here for Passage
Description of Story: March 6, 2008.

It's been said that bad habits are like a comfortable bed, easy to get into, but hard to get out of. Never were truer words ever spoken. No matter how hard each of us tries, we're all prone to developing some bad habits on occasion; some worse than others. And making those bad habits disappear is by no means an easy trick.

Greg Hickman Winning Streak. Click Here for Passage
Description of Story: March 5, 2008.

Winning is fun. Winning is exciting. Winning is exhilarating, stimulating, invigorating. In fact, winning is almost intoxicating. Yet to a large number of people around the world the notion of winning is a foreign concept, little more than a fanciful pipedream.

Greg Hickman Room With A View. Click Here for Passage
Description of Story: March 3, 2008.

Life can feel a little confining, a little restricting on occasion; sometimes more than a little. With all sorts of things to do and precious few moments to get it all done, we feel an ever present pressure to make things happen as quickly as possible; unwelcome pressure that comes at us from virtually every conceivable angle.

Greg Hickman Integrity Counts. Click Here for Passage
Description of Story: February 21, 2008.

We constantly here the terms honor and integrity casually tossed about these days, much like Frisbees in the park on a Sunday afternoon. But what do these words really mean? And more importantly, are they even all that relevant anymore?

Greg Hickman All Things Considered. Click Here for Passage
Description of Story: February 20, 2008.

How do you approach the start of each new day? There are some of us who bounce out of bed and enthusiastically proclaim, "Good morning Lord!" Eager to see what the new day brings, these folks can barely wait to get started. Then there are others who can barely muster the oomph to get up. Rubbing their eyes, stuck in a lazy, hazy daze, they look around and mutter something along the lines of "Good lord, its morning."

Greg Hickman What Are You Waiting On? Click Here for Passage
Description of Story: February 19, 2008.

There are few things more aggravating in life than having to wait in a long line. I'm not talking about a line consisting of a person or two, but a really L-O-N-G line that seemingly goes on forever. And regardless of where we find ourselves waiting, whether it's at the grocery store, ticket office, airport, amusement park or even the dreaded department of motor vehicles, waiting in a long line can be a real pain in the... neck.

Greg Hickman Laugh Out Loud. Click Here for Passage
Description of Story: February 17, 2008.

Life can be tough, sometimes really tough on occasions. There are bills to pay, obligations to meet, commitments to keep... the list seemingly goes on forever. With our daily schedule seemingly jam packed from daylight to dark and beyond, we oftentimes find ourselves juggling way too many things at once.

Greg Hickman What's The Use? Click Here for Passage
Description of Story: February 16, 2008.

I give up.

I would wager that most of us have uttered these words of surrender a time or two in the past. After all, 'I give up' is easy to say when faced with our most trying of moments. And it's even easier to do when we are subjected to life's most difficult of circumstances.

Greg Hickman Whatever It Takes. Click Here for Passage
Description of Story: February 15, 2008.

If you're like most of us, you've probably the all-too-familiar refrain whatever a few too many times; maybe way too many times. This catch-all expression is generally uttered by people who are annoyed by what we say or think. Rather than show some effort and say something substantive, these shallow thinkers roll their eyes and toss out a half-hearted 'whatever,' generally ladled with a sarcastic tone.

Greg Hickman Decisions, Decisions. Click Here for Passage
Description of Story: February 13, 2008.

Life can occasionally feel like a never ending parade of decisions that must be made. One decision followed by another and another in rapid fire succession. There are big decisions and small decisions, important decisions and not so important decisions, business decisions, financial decisions, personal and interpersonal decisions, decisions of all shapes and sizes. The list is virtually endless.
