Power Up Passages

Life is a do it yourself kit.
March 3, 2003.

Most of us have purchased plenty of products that came with as a do it yourself kit. Maybe you had to merely apply the finishing touches to a partially assembled bicycle or perhaps had the pleasure of putting together a toy from scratch on Christmas Eve. In any event, the kit contained the necessary pieces and a set of instructions illustrating how you should go about completing the balance of the required work.

These instructions, although well intentioned, generally range from being a bit confusing to downright frustrating. And to make matters a little more difficult, from time to time a few of the needed parts were missing as well. Yet despite all of these obstacles and distractions, you learned to keep on plugging away until the job was 100% complete.

Life is something of a do it yourself program as well, isn't it? After all, your life started out equipped with the standard winner’s package. However, the instructions for your kit were not included. So as a small child, you depended on others to help the winner inside you emerge during your early formative years.

Sometimes these people had the foresight to make sure you received a steady diet of positive conditioning which nurtured that winning spirit. And sometimes these people allowed a lot of negative conditioning to occur.

Eventually the responsibility of who you are and what you’re going to accomplish with your life is placed in your hands. At that transitional moment, you are handed control of your own do it yourself kit. Then and there, ready or not, you have to start 'doing it' yourself.

Regardless of how good or how bad your previous conditioning may have been, the only thing that matters from that point on is where you go from here. We have all watched certain individuals who received superior positive conditioning as a child go out and totally throw their lives away. On the other hand, we have witnessed others who have come from the most atrocious and dreadful backgrounds imaginable pick themselves up and reach unimaginable heights.

In both sets of circumstances, although completely different in nature, the individuals involved ultimately decided what kind of life they and their loved ones would enjoy or endure. They eventually had to decide for themselves whether positive or negative conditioning would dominate their lives. For better or for worse, they most assuredly took over their own do it yourself kits. And so must you.

When properly utilized, this all important survival kit provides the best possible insurance policy for a rich and rewarding life. By boldly taking a do it yourself approach, you insure that whatever you choose to undertake in life will get done right and on time as well.

You must jump at the chance to grab control of your life and then unflinchingly maintain complete control – no matter what. This type of total self reliance is a sure fire trait of a winner. When you decide once and for all to take complete control of your life and make it the exciting adventure it deserves to be, your life will become everything you’ve ever dreamed it could be – and more.

It’s time for you to grab the ball and run with it. When you do, you’ll discover that doing it yourself is the only way to go.

The Bottom Line: When you can count on yourself to do it yourself, nobody can ever count you out again.


Believe in yourself! Have faith in your abilities! Without a humble but reasonable confidence in your own powers you cannot be successful or happy.
Norman Vincent Peale

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

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