Power Up Passages

Playing To Win.
December 20, 2002.

You can choose to live life to its fullest where fun and excitement is the name of the game or you can settle for a dull, boring, run of the mill existence where you barely scrape by. Since you get to do the choosing, why in the world would you ever choose the later? A winner could only make one choice and that would be to play the game of life - and play it to win.

We were all blessed with a winner's mindset that tells us we can have and achieve anything that we want in life when we show the will to get it done. We know this to be the case because we have all had magnificent dreams where we have vividly imagined ourselves doing, being and having all sorts of wonderful things. We could never conceive these thoughts and dream these dreams if we were incapable of achieving them in every day action.

Unfortunately, some people somehow see life as a cruel game of keep away where others get to have and keep what these would-be winners have always dreamed about. These dreamers stand on the sidelines and watch the so-called lucky people living the lives they can only dream about and silently wish they too could live the good life. Tragically, these folks see roadblocks where the top achievers see opportunity instead.

In the game of life, what you see is what you get. And since these people no longer see themselves winning, they sadly consign themselves to a life of doing without. Over time, these folks ultimately feel as though they no longer deserve to win and losing becomes their dominate state of mind. To them, life has become a game of keep away. These people, who deserve so much better, come up holding the short end of the stick.

Come on, losing is not what living is all about. Living is about winning. You are about winning. If you ever, even for a fleeting moment, feel yourself slipping into this 'keep away' mindset where the good life no longer seems possible, you need to wake up from this draining and potential stealing nightmare and plug into 24 Hour Positive Power © instead. In order to insure you live your life with positive power, it is your duty to focus your attention on the positive aspects of life every second of every day.

You should focus on being positive a) when you arise in the morning, b) throughout the day as you live life to the fullest and c) before you go to bed at night. By constantly focusing your attention on positive thoughts, words and deeds, you'll soon SEE yourself winning - and winning BIG.

Hey, wouldn't you much rather live a playing for keeps lifestyle dominated with positive beliefs and positive actions than settle for a life of keep away? Life affords each of us an ongoing opportunity to live the lives we have dreamed about and truly desire. Even if we have made the wrong choices for such a long time, we can choose a life time committed to excellence right here and right now.

It's time for all of us to play the game of life the way we were born to do so. We need to play hard, play by the rules and for goodness sakes - we need to play to win!


The game of life is the game of boomerangs. Our thoughts, deeds and words return to us sooner or later, with astounding accuracy.
Florence Shinn

Success is that old ABC - ability, breaks and courage.
Charles Luckman

Until you are happy with who you are, you will never be happy with what you have.
Zig Ziglar

Three grand essentials to happiness in this life are something to do, something to love and something to hope for.

Happiness is not something you postpone for the future; it is something you design for the present.
