Power Up Passages

Passages by Category Passages by Month

Author Title Click to read
Greg Hickman Keeping Your Eyes On The Prize. Click Here for Passage
Description of Story: September 22, 2007.

Most of us hold within ourselves a number of goals and objectives we want to accomplish in our lifetimes. There are those larger than life, almost mind-boggling dreams that make us come alive with energy and excitement and then there are those smaller yet equally important dreams we yearn to achieve.

Greg Hickman Maximum Strength. Click Here for Passage
Description of Story: September 21, 2007.

Take a quick glance around and you'll quickly discover that far too many people far too often give far less than theyre capable of giving. Most of these people could do better - in fact, many of these folks really want to do better - but truth be told, they're just not willing to push themselves a little bit harder to get there. So they end up settling for less than they could have and should have had. And that's a shame.

Greg Hickman Making Hey. Click Here for Passage
Description of Story: September 18, 2007.

Is it just me... or have you also noticed that people are generally more stand offish than they used to be? I know I have perceived a discernible difference in the way people react to those they encounter in their day to day activities. More and more I find casual greetings made to others as a friendly gesture receiving an increasingly cooler reception. And I just don't get it.

Greg Hickman Positively Positive. Click Here for Passage
Description of Story: August 26, 2007.

If you haven't noticed, and I don't know how in the world you could have possibly missed it, there is no shortage of Negative Nell types all around us these days. You know the kind of people I'm talking about, don't you? Those perpetually pessimistic doom and gloom individuals who habitually seem down in the dumps. And I mean way deep down in the dumps.

Greg Hickman Why Can't Just Doesn't Cut It. Click Here for Passage
Description of Story: August 25, 2007.

Is it just me or does it sometimes feel as if the world has become a great big CAN'T; a seemingly ceaseless compilation of what collectively can't be done? Everywhere we turn and everywhere we go, we encounter a never ending string of excuses and reasons why things aren't getting done. And it can become frustrating, to say the very least.

Greg Hickman Objects May Be Closer Than They Appear. Click Here for Passage
Description of Story: August 15, 2007.

If you've ever glanced at your side view mirror while driving, you have no doubt seen the words 'objects may be closer than they appear' inscribed on the mirror. This warning lets you know that the mirror makes objects such traffic and the like look a little further away than they actually are.

Greg Hickman Forgive and Forget. Click Here for Passage
Description of Story: August 14, 2007.

Forgive and forget. Three simple words. Yet these three simple words can take a lifetime of work to put into everyday practice. Without question, one of the toughest challenges we'll ever encounter is to let go of the past, to leave the unpleasant experiences we've encountered behind and get on with our lives.

Greg Hickman Outside of the Box. Click Here for Passage
Description of Story: Have you ever experienced that 'boxed in' feeling, where it feels like the whole world is closing in all around you? August 13, 2007.

I'm sure you have; most of us have at one time or another. And if you're like most folks, you would readily agree that it's not a good feeling. Not a good feeling at all.

Greg Hickman Location, Location, Location. Click Here for Passage
Description of Story: August 12, 2007.

Having spent most of my professional career as a real estate broker, I have heard the oft repeated phrase 'location, location, location' regarding real estate thousands of times over. This age old axiom holds that the location of any given property is its most important quality... period.

Greg Hickman Under the Circumstances. Click Here for Passage
Description of Story: August 11, 2007.

Far too many of us tend to live our lives under the circumstances, where we constantly allow outside factors and external conditions undue influence over where we go and what we do. Instead of boldly taking charge of our lives, we frequently permit forces supposedly beyond our control to dictate our direction in life.

Greg Hickman Get A Life. Click Here for Passage
Description of Story: August 7, 2007.

Hip and happening catchphrases tend to come and go. Cool one minute, lukewarm a few moments later. One such slogan is the expression 'get a life.' If you're like the majority of us, youve probably heard this quirky saying one too many times.

Greg Hickman The Best Things In Life Are Free. Click Here for Passage
Description of Story: July 30, 2007.

The best things in life are free. Boy oh boy, now doesn't that phrase sound familiar? It should, since most of us have heard this oft-repeated saying a thousands times over. And while this adage seems both short and sweet, in reality it turns out to be anything but.

Greg Hickman Dancing With The Stars. Click Here for Passage
Description of Story: July 25, 2007.

How many times have you caught yourself gazing up at the sky on crisp, clear night, silently staring at the almost overwhelming splendor of the countless stars above? In a mere matter of moments, you can almost get lost in the radiant brilliance of the glistening stars dotting the evening sky.

Greg Hickman The Path of Least Persistence. Click Here for Passage
Description of Story: July 21, 2007.

Have you ever wondered what in the heck has happened to the proverbial get up and go in the world? It doesnt take a whole lot of looking around to see theres a whole lot less people going than there used to be. In fact, it sometimes feels like the vast majority of people out there have very little oomph left in them. Its as if their get up and go has gotten up and gone.

Greg Hickman Turn That Excuse Loose. Click Here for Passage
Description of Story: June 21, 2007.

Rudyard Kipling, the celebrated English author and poet, once said, "We have forty million reasons for failure, but not a single excuse." Yet today we are literally inundated with a tidal wave of excuses from every direction. In fact, it seems everyone has a reason, explanation or justification for not doing what they were supposed to do.

Greg Hickman Turning Down The Sound. Click Here for Passage
Description of Story: June 20, 2007.

While it's been said many times that silence is golden, actually finding a few moments of peace and quiet is becoming more challenging by the day. With all of the collective clamor and commotion we deal with daily, it's no small wonder that quiet time has become an increasingly rare commodity in our lives.

Greg Hickman Throwing Caution To The Wind. Click Here for Passage
Description of Story: June 9, 2007.

SAFETY FIRST. How many times have we heard this phrase over the years? Now I will quickly concede that safety certainly does have it place. After all, exercising a great deal of caution when youre behind the wheel of a car or out on a boat makes a great deal of sense. But a safety first attitude when it comes to living can leave a lot to be desired. A whole lot as a matter of fact.

Greg Hickman Doing What Needs To Be Done. Click Here for Passage
Description of Story: June 8, 2007.

Each of us holds within ourselves a vision of what our lives could be and should be: an assortment of big dreams, big plans and big ideas that fire us up from head to toe. These larger than life aspirations excite us and inspire us, filling us with hope, expectation and optimism.

Greg Hickman Wishing Well. Click Here for Passage
Description of Story: May 30, 2007.

How much time do you spend wishing you had this or wishing you could do that? If you're like the majority of us, you probably spend more time wishing than actually doing. We wish here, we wish there; in fact, we wish virtually everywhere.

Greg Hickman Soar Loser. Click Here for Passage
Description of Story: May 22, 2007.

You just can't win for losing. Have you ever heard this phrase used before? I'm sure you have, but do you really buy into the notion that losing keeps you from winning in life? Let's hope not. Truth be told, losing ultimately paves the way for winning. Sounds a little bit crazy? At first blush, probably so, but let's take a closer look.
