Power Up Passages

Doing within keeps you from doing without.
March 7, 2003.

When you look into the mirror, what do you see? Do you see a winner who habitually gets the most out of what you have been given or do you see a whiner who habitually complains and gripes about the lousy hand you've been dealt? The way you look at yourself and the way you see yourself goes a long way in determining what you have – and what you won't have – in life. Winners have learned that a consistently positive outlook results in consistently positive outcome. Interesting, isn't it?

When you see yourself as a winner, you position yourself to win. When you see yourself as a loser or victim in the game of life, you position yourself to lose. I can tell you right here and now that losing stinks. In fact, experience has taught me that losing stinks really bad. I never have and never will get used to the stench that accompanies losing. You or I might outwardly resign ourselves to tolerating it, but the winner inside us will never, ever get used to it.

All winners want to make a real difference in the world around them and I'm sure that you are no exception. It is important to remember that it is what's inside of you that makes a difference, not those things outside of you. In order to make a positive difference on the outside, you must first possess a positive I can do it attitude on the inside.

The image you hold of yourself, regardless of whether it is positive or negative in nature, ultimately provides the blueprint for your life's story. Far too many people stand idly by watching their dreams pass them by. These would-be winners find themselves consistently on the losing end of everything because their poor self image consistently allows others to put them in their place.

I have personally met a number of people who desperately wanted to accomplish some truly great and important things in their lives, but were knocked to their knees when others told them that they were not good enough, not smart enough or maybe not lucky enough to get the job done. Instead of dismissing these observations as senseless and without merit, they bought into the nonsense hook, line and sinker.

These people quit believing in themselves and consequently stopped living as a result. Don't you dare make that mistake! Deep down, you know you can do it. Deep down, you know you have what it takes to be counted among the best of the best. These deep down feelings of self assurance and self worth can provide the absolute best insurance policy against these so-called experts.

You have to believe, with every ounce of energy in your body, that you have what it takes. As soon as you start believing it with all your heart and soul on the inside, you'll start seeing unbelievably great results on the outside.

The Bottom Line: The minute you start doing within, you'll stop doing without.


I have a small favor to ask of you. As you probably know, I work very hard to prepare a daily Power Up Passage for our subscribers. Since I know firsthand how vitally important a positive, uplifting message can be, it is my pleasure to provide our passages free of charge to all who request them.

The favor is simply this - if you could kindly forward each day's passage to a couple of friends, coworkers or relatives that could use a daily dose of motivation, it will help spread our positive message. Simply invite them to sign up for both our complimentary Power Up Passage and Motivational and Inspirational Corner Newsletter by going to our home page at and signing up in the SUBSCRIPTION BOX.

Thanks so much!
