Power Up Passages

Past Tense.
December 27, 2002.

Doubts, doubts and more doubts. Just the mere mention of the word "doubt" sends an empty feeling of uneasiness throughout the entire length of a would-be winner’s body. What about you?

Have you ever been so terrified at the sheer prospect of failing that you found yourself literally paralyzed and unable to do what you know needed to be done? Have the pressures and anxieties associated with day to day living ever filled you with doubt and uncertainty on occasion? Let's be honest, most of us have been haunted by the "fear of failure" at one time or another.

Regardless of whether we like it or not, each day presents new challenges and opportunities and there will always be some days that are better than others. There's no question that all of us would rather live a lot more of the "good" days and a lot less of the "not so good" days. After all, the good days are really something special.

These are those incredible days that have become indelibly etched in our hearts and souls, to be remembered and cherished forever. On the other hand, the not so good days are ... well, they're not so good. We’d just as soon forget they ever happened, since there is nothing special about them at all. Each and every one of us needs to grab more of the good days and eliminate the bad days in our life.

Life can sure feel like a real pressure cooker at times. Day after day, week after week, you can feel the pressure building and building and building inside you until you feel like your are going to explode! The moment you start feeling this unrelenting pressure building, we want you to heed the warning signs and turn the pressure down; in fact, turn it way down.

You must learn how to diffuse stress by staying cool, calm and collected – even when the heat is on. You will discover the moment you turn down the heat, you are free to turn yourself loose.

Your life shouldn't be dominated with stress and fear, but instead should be filled with fun and adventure. Each dawning day holds the potential for being the best day you have ever lived, or it can be just another day. The manner in which you approach each day will determine the way you get to live that day. Keeping your cool and getting "past tense", especially when the heat is turned up full blast, sets the stage for one super sensational day after another.

Can this be done? Is it really possible for you to stack one good day after another after another for the rest of your life? You better believe it is. Positive conditioning is the key. Once you learn how to harness your emotions by getting past tense, absolutely nothing can ever hold you back again.


When the only tool you own is a hammer, every problem begins to resemble a nail.
Abraham Maslow

Believe it is possible to solve your problem. Tremendous things happen to the believer. So believe the answer will come. It will.
Norman Vincent Peale

Little minds attain and are subdued by misfortunes; but great minds rise above them.
Washington Irving

Others can stop you temporarily -- you are the only one who can do it permanently.
Zig Ziglar

Depression loses its power when fresh vision pierces the darkness.
Peter Sinclair
