Power Up Passages

Common Since When?
January 31, 2003.

In today’s passage, let’s take a look at the one trait all winners have in common. That one common denominator is their ability to rely on their common sense.

While all of us were born with some common sense – some with more, some with less – winners take what they were given and make it even better. These top achieving individuals have learned how to tap into their powerful sixth sense and as a result, they have learned how to take their lives to a more rewarding, more satisfying and more fulfilling level.

Winners call upon their common sense dozens of times each day. Whenever and wherever they need to make important changes or implement new ideas, these proposed changes and ideas must first past their own common sense litmus test. If an idea makes sense, they put it to work immediately. If, on the other hand, these changes or ideas fail to pass the test, a winner never wastes any more of his or her valuable time, talent and energy pursuing them.

At first blush, this common sense issue probably doesn't sound like such a big deal. After all, if everyone is born with common sense, then everyone uses it too, don't they? Unfortunately, that’s not necessarily the case.

Think about it for a moment. Is plain good old fashioned "common sense" really all that common anymore? If it is, then why do so many people insist on doing all sorts of things to mess up their lives? Come on, choosing to mess up your life doesn't make a whole lot of sense, does it? Of course not.

Using our common sense is one of those little things that can make a big difference in our lives. Sometimes the only difference between consistently winning and habitually losing can be attributed to the use or misuse of one's common sense. A lot of things that used to seem like good old common sense are not that common anymore. "Common Sense 101" is not a course you can take down at your local community college. As a mater of fact, common sense is not something you learn per se, rather it is something you feel.

For example, have you ever had a gut feeling that you should or shouldn't do something? This instinctive feeling, emanating from inside of you, was in reality your sixth sense attempting to show you the way. Conditioning yourself to effectively listen to your common sense will strengthen your ability to make the right decisions while keeping you out of trouble at the same time. We need to listen to our intuition, learn to depend on our gut feelings and really tune into this invincible internal barometer we have been blessed with.

If everyone put this forceful sixth sense to work for them every day, winning in every day action would become common again as well.

The Bottom Line: Trusting your best judgment, relying on your gut feelings and listening to your intuition does indeed make a lot of 'common sense.'


Self-trust is the essence of heroism.
Ralph Waldo Emerson

Self confidence is the first requisite to great undertakings.
Samuel Johnson

Confidence is contagious and so is lack of confidence.
Vincent Lombardi
