Power Up Passages

The Write Stuff.

Brought to you by
The Power Performance Program ©

April 24, 2003.

"I read and walked for miles at night along the beach, writing bad blank verse and searching endlessly for someone wonderful who would step out of the darkness and change my life. It never crossed my mind that that person could be me."
Anna Quindlen

Have you ever been awakened in the middle of the night with an idea so powerful that it almost knocked you out of bed? I’m sure you have at one time or another. With this super idea burning brightly in your mind, did you get up and write it down — or did you simply roll over, hoping you would remember it the next morning?

"You don't write because you want to say something, you write because you've got something to say."
F. Scott Fitzgerald

On other occasions, have you ever found yourself completely lost in a super sensational daydream, vividly envisioning a picture so real that you felt you could reach out and touch it? Did you immediately record the magic of the moment — or did you just go back to your daily routine?

And have you ever experienced an unexpected spark of inspiration, a sudden flash of brilliance, that seemed to appear out of the blue? Did you immediately convert the power of your idea into words — or did you simply commit it to memory instead?

"We are cups, constantly and quietly being filled. The trick is, knowing how to tip ourselves over and let the beautiful stuff out."
Ray Bradbury

It may come as a surprise to you, but the most successful people on earth openly embrace the ‘write’ approach to life. Whenever and wherever a worthwhile idea or thought pops into their minds, these winners immediately write it down. They never take the chance of hoping they’ll remember it later.

You hold inside of yourself more magic than you’ll ever need. And it is this magic that comes to life in your moments of inspiration. Each and every day, dozens of these ideas float across the silver screen of your mind — regardless of whether you are ready to receive them or not.

Some of these life changing ideas blast in with ferocious fury, literally bowling you over in their powerful wake. Then there are those thoughts and notions that silently drift in like a gentle breeze across a lake, gently tapping you on the shoulder. Your ability to harness the potential of these thoughts and ideas, both large and small alike, will depend on whether you write them down — or not.

"All words are pegs to hang ideas on."
Henry Ward Beecher

Keeping a power performance journal close at hand provides you the invaluable ability to record these ideas while they’re still fresh in your mind. Your journal is the canvass on which you can take these ideas and begin painting a portrait of personal excellence.

"History will be kind to me for I intend to write it."
Winston Churchill

When you turn down the noise of the outside world and tune into your internal magic, ideas will start flowing like a powerful river. Before you know it, you’ll find yourself literally swamped with an almost overpowering flood of ideas, thoughts, impressions and the like. As quickly as possible, capture as much as you can by writing it all down — right that very moment.

Don’t wait or hesitate. Counting on your ability to remember all of these emotion laden messages later simply doesn’t work. You have to write it down — ‘write’ now — or these magical moments may be lost forever.

"If I chance to talk a little wild, forgive me."
William Shakespeare

You should view your journal as an ongoing brainstorm, a continual conversation you hold with your inner soul. Once you get in the habit of writing down all of your thoughts, dreams and ideas daily, you’ll bring POWER to your words — and to your life.

The Bottom Line: When you learn to live your life the ‘write’ way, you’ll start living your dreams right now.
