Power Up Passages

Betting On A Sure Thing.
December 28, 2002.

The real power performers are a select group of adventurous souls who seem to possess an uncanny knack for setting some really BIG goals for themselves, goals that everyone else considers well beyond anyone's reach. Not only do these winners set some very lofty goals, they constantly reach and exceed these goals time after time.

It sometimes seems as though the odds are somehow stacked in the winner's favor. Off in the corner, you can hear the would-be winners, those who wouldn’t dare take the risks these winners have taken, quietly ask, "How can anyone be so lucky? I wish I had some of their luck.”

What these would-be winners fail to realize is that it isn't luck that catapulted these champions to the top. Not even close. The primary reason these winners consistently reach the top is because they are committed to making good things happen in their lives. By focusing on what needs to be done and then going out there and doing it, these power players make their own luck.

As a result, these top achieving individuals always seem to get more done in less time, enjoy more success with less effort and have more fun than everyone else put together. In reality, luck has very little to do with their success. If the odds are in some way tilted in the winner's favor, it is because he or she stacked them that way.

Sometimes it does feels like the odds are stacked against us. All of us have moments when it feels as though our whole world is crashing down on top of our heads. It is during these trying times that you need to remember that you can control your feelings or alternatively, allow them to control you. You can convert any feelings of hopelessness and despair you occasionally experience into high octane optimism and achievement by changing your mind.

What do we mean when we say you need to change your mind? In a nutshell, you need to change the way you think and change the way you work before you can expect to change your luck.

How would you like to change your luck and start stacking the odds in your favor for a change? Well, I’ve got some great news for you! You can swing the odds of super success in your favor and you can start right now. You can start living the life you’ve always dreamed about -- and you can do it sooner rather than later. You can have, do and be anything you want – when you’re willing to bet on yourself. That’s right, when you start believing you've got what it takes to be one of the best of the very best, you’ve just bet on a sure thing.

When you bet on yourself and your abilities to make good things happen, you are an odds on favorite to win. You need to believe in yourself with all of your heart and soul. Then, before you know it, people will start calling you “lucky” as well.


Believe it can be done. When you believe something can be done, really believe, your mind will find the ways to do it. Believing a solution paves the way to solution.
Dr. David Schwartz

To believe in the things you can see and touch is no belief at all. But to believe in the unseen is both a triumph and a blessing.
Bob Proctor

Every fool knows you can't touch the stars, but it doesn't stop a wise man from trying.
Harry Anderson

You cannot consistently perform in a manner which is inconsistent with the way you see yourself.
Zig Ziglar

What we need is not the will be believe, but the wish to find out.
Bertrand Russell
