Power Up Passages

We own our outcomes.
March 13, 2003.

How far you go and how high you climb in life is controlled by only one person. This one person is not your boss at work or one of your friends or relatives. This one person is not even your spouse, boyfriend or girlfriend. Like it or not, that one person is YOU.

You and you alone are in control. You control where you're going, how you’re going to get there and when you’re going to arrive. You are in total control of your life – and that is just the way you want it, isn't it? You would certainly think so, yet some people would rather not assume that degree of personal responsibility. In fact, some seem to avoid personal responsibility like it’s the plague. Why some people sadly prefer to languish in last place and blame someone else rather than give life their very best shot remains a mystery.

Thankfully, winners are more than willing to take full responsibility for themselves. They condition themselves to give it all they have to give … and then give a little more. They play to win and not surprisingly, they win time and time again.

That doesn’t mean they don’t get knocked down, because they do. Since they’re out there laying it all on the line daily, they get knocked down more than most folks. But getting knocked just makes them stronger and more resilient.

That doesn’t mean they don’t fail or come up short on occasion, because they do. In fact, they fail way more than the play it safe crowd, but they’re also the champions who make history as well. These top achieving individuals ultimately prevail and stake their name alongside the very best because they refuse to give up – on themselves.

All winners demand control of their lives – and so must you. You can alter your destiny in life the moment you decide to unleash the immense positive power within. When you do tap into your internal reservoir of strength, you will discover how surprisingly easy it is to change anything you need to change on your trip to the top.

If you’re not satisfied with your position in life right now, all you need to do is change that position right now. If you are not satisfied with the direction you’re heading, all you need to do is change directions right now. If you dislike all of the pressure and problems you face every day, all you need to do is change the way you go about your daily routines right now.

Please realize that anything and everything in life is subject to change. The key is to make the changes you need to make - when you need them the most. And right now sounds like the right time to start.

The Bottom Line: Once you truly understand and appreciate the fact that YOU own your own outcome in life, your life will be in good hands.


Once you make a decision, the universe conspires to make it happen.
Ralph Waldo Emerson

In a moment of decision, the best thing you can do is the right thing to do. The worst thing you can do is nothing.
Theodore Roosevelt

Put all excuses aside and remember this: YOU are capable.
Zig Ziglar
