Power Up Passages

Author Title Click to read
Greg Hickman Don't Be Guilty Of Short Changing Yourself. Click Here for Passage
Description of Story: November 25, 2002.

We all know people who regularly sell themselves short in one fashion or another all of the time. These folks never seem to give themselves enough credit or somehow refuse to believe they have the ability to get the job done. These people, by placing limitations on themselves and their abilities, are guilty of short changing themselves. In all probability, you have short changed yourself from time to time too. As a matter of fact, we all do at one time or another.

Greg Hickman Stop Reading The Fine Print. Click Here for Passage
Description of Story: November 23, 2002.

Yes, you did indeed read the title correctly. We want you to stop reading the fine print. The ‘fine print’ we’re talking about here is not fine print on your contracts to purchase a car or the terms of your new credit card, although many folks rarely take the time to read that fine print anyway. The fine print contained on those types of documents is important to read and understand.

The fine print we are referring to are those minute, almost inconsequential odds and ends that needlessly slow us down and impede our progress daily.

Greg Hickman Will You Change By Choice, Chance or Circumstance? Click Here for Passage
Description of Story: November 22, 2002.

It seems as though the vast majority of people would much prefer to play it safe and avoid risk if at all possible. While this conservative game plan does avoid a certain amount of risk, the participant can never reach his or her full potential by playing it safe nor can he or she ever experience the unparalleled excitement life’s adventure holds in store.

Greg Hickman Winning Begins The Minute You Do. Click Here for Passage
Description of Story: November 21, 2002.

Some of the most gratifying and satisfying feelings you can ever experience in life are those precious moments when you put your best to the test -- and you come out on top.

But in order for any of us to feel the exhiliration of walking in the cherished victory circle, we must first have the courage to begin. After all, how in the world could any of us ever expect to reach our goals and achieve our objectives if we are unwilling to get the ball rolling in the first place? Yet it seems as though the simple act of just getting started is almost too much for some people to handle.

Greg Hickman Writing A Best Seller. Click Here for Passage
Description of Story: November 20, 2002.

You are presently engaged in the writing of your own life's story. As the story's featured hero or heroine, you can script yourself living the life of a full fledged folk hero, where having the time of your life is the order of the day. As both the writer and the featured actor, you can choose to spin a spellbinding tale of a swashbuckler's roaring adventure through life, with each new day in the book unlocking more fireworks and flurry of frenetic action than most people experience in a life time.

Greg Hickman One of a Kind. Click Here for Passage
Description of Story: November 19, 2002.

You are not going to win many games of poker when your best hand is "one of a kind". While four of a kind, three of a kind or even two of a kind will win a lot of card games, one of a kind is just not going to cut it. But life is not a card game and in the game of life, one of a kind is a winning hand.

Greg Hickman Hear and Now. Click Here for Passage
Description of Story: November 18, 2002.

Winners, through their relentless positive conditioning, develop a case of selective hearing. They have absolutely no problem in hearing the good, but they are somehow unable to hear the bad. They have come to realize that "what they hear is what they get", so they turn out the negative influences of life. They make sure they only hear the good by surrounding themselves with good people, good thoughts and good ideas.

Greg Hickman Unconditional Surrender. Click Here for Passage
Description of Story: November 16, 2002.

President Franklin D. Roosevelt once said, “The only limits to our realization of tomorrow will be our doubts of today.” FDR sure knew what he was talking about, didn’t he? After all, if we doubt ourselves today, isn't it possible that we will continue to doubt ourselves down the road? Not only is it possible, it is highly probable. Those lingering doubts that we carry around in our hearts and in our souls are the very things that hold us back and slow us down.

Greg Hickman Keep Up The Great Work Weekly -- Not Weakly. Click Here for Passage
Description of Story: November 15, 2002.

Being good every once in a while is a relatively easy task. How many times have you enjoyed one of those really special days and then said to yourself, "I wish every day could be just like today"? Anyone, and I do mean anyone, can have a good day every now and again. But is having a good day every once in a while or every now and again really good enough for a winner? No way. A winner wants to win, day in and day out.

Greg Hickman Made To Order. Click Here for Passage
Description of Story: November 14, 2002.

If you are not presently enjoying a great day every day, then it's fairly obvious that you need to start making some better choices in your life. Every day can be a super great day and today is no exception to the rule. As a matter of fact, today can be your best day ever. So how about it, are you ready to enjoy the best day you have ever had in your entire life? I bet you are! Then why not choose to have a super successful day - today? It's that easy, it really is.

Greg Hickman Excellence From The Inside Out. Click Here for Passage
Description of Story: November 13, 2002.

It may come as a mild surprise to some people that there are still millions upon millions of people in this country who still believe that a person's handshake and good word stand for something really special. To them, their handshake and their word are as good as good as it gets – as good as gold. When these champions give you their word, you know full well they will honor their commitment to you.

Greg Hickman Committed To The Cause. Click Here for Passage
Description of Story: November 12, 2002.

Throughout our lives we will enter into all sorts of commitments. These commitments literally run the gamut, from those very formal in nature to the more casual varieties. It is unfortunate that when some people give their word to someone else, their commitment to keeping their word means little or nothing to them and even less to those it was given.

Greg Hickman Winning On Purpose. Click Here for Passage
Description of Story: November 11, 2002.

The winning strategy of top achieving individuals can be summed up rather succinctly. They want to win each and every time out but also want everyone else around them to win at the same time. These champions will never endorse the short sighted notion that there has to be winners and losers in life. They believe that each of us was put here to win and that there is more than enough winning to go around.

Greg Hickman There's Never A Wrong Time To Do The Right Thing. Click Here for Passage
Description of Story: November 9, 2002.

Can there ever be a wrong time for us to do the right thing? Of course not. There is only a right time to do the right thing and that right time is always right now. Each of us possess a clear sense of right and wrong. Even as small children, we quickly learned what we should and shouldn't do.

Greg Hickman Getting A Pace Lift. Click Here for Passage
Description of Story: November 8, 2002.

Change is and has always been the very life blood of living. Getting better and improving your lot in life requires change -- and change requires commitment and fixity of purpose. The changes you make, or fail to make for that matter, will in large measure determine your life's direction and ultimately, your destiny on earth. Having the courage to make changes whenever and wherever necessary is the calling card of a champion.

Greg Hickman Easier Done Than Said. Click Here for Passage
Description of Story: November 7, 2002.

How many times have you heard the familiar expression, "It is easier said than done?” Probably more times than you can count. How many times have you used that saying yourself? Probably a lot more times than you care to remember. When we say that it is easier to say something rather than do something, aren't we really just making an excuse for not doing what needs to be done? That is exactly what we are doing -- and that is not a healthy habit for us to develop.

Greg Hickman Second To None. Click Here for Passage
Description of Story: November 6, 2002.

A would-be winner often laments "if I had only done this, if I had only done that - then I could have had this, I could have been that". Second guessing is sometimes only fear in disguise, hoping to paralyze you into taking no action and making no decisions.

Greg Hickman Why Knot? Click Here for Passage
Description of Story: November 5, 2002.

Believing is always the first step and the most important step you will ever take on your trip to the top. How can any of us ever expect our dreams to come true if we don't believe, really believe deep down in our hearts and souls, that they are indeed possible?

Greg Hickman Flying High Above The Crowd. Click Here for Passage
Description of Story: November 4, 2002.

The real winners in life only know one speed and that speed is full tilt. Winners regularly give an all out effort in everything they do and as a result, they regularly get the most out of what they have been given. Not surprisingly, these winners always seem to be flying high above the rest of the crowd. Their ever present refuse to lose attitude helps them maintain their lofty altitude. They live life to its fullest – and so should you.

Greg Hickman Think Again. Click Here for Passage
Description of Story: November 2, 2002.

Our minds are constantly on the go. We think about all sorts of different things throughout the day. Conscious and subconscious thoughts drift in and out of our minds all day long. Over time, power performers condition themselves to selectively channel only positive and productive thoughts into their minds. Since they fully realize that their minds can only hold one dominant thought at a time, they make sure that any thoughts their minds embrace are of a positive nature.
