Power Up Passages

A Sticky Situation.

What is a lifetime of living your dreams worth to you?

July 24, 2003.

“We can do anything we want to do if we stick to it long enough.”
Helen Keller

Starting a project and finishing it are two altogether different sides of the same coin. Yet despite the fact that getting started often presents the biggest stumbling block to success, millions of people still manage to give it a whirl every now and again.

But once the initial excitement surrounding the beginning of a new adventure subsides, the stark reality of what it really takes to get the job done whops them square in the kisser. Rather than show the oomph to stick with the game plan, most of these folks start another endeavor — they start running for cover.

“The three great essentials to achieve anything worthwhile are: hard work, stick-to-itiveness and common sense.”
Thomas A. Edison

Boy, did Mr. Edison hit the nail on the head or what? After all, you’re never going to reach the top in your chosen field of excellence without a good deal of hard work. And it never hurts to have a modicum of common sense in your corner either. But none of these things matter a bit if you’re not prepared to get on the stick and then stick with the plan.

Far too often we fold our tents when we are perched right on the threshold of greatness. Instead of sticking it out and sticking with the program a little bit longer, we toss in the towel and mount a hasty retreat to right back where we started. Now snuggly tucked away in our ‘comfy’ zone and out of harm’s way, we can complain about how our cookie crumbled, never once realizing we did the crumbling ourselves.

"Be like a postage stamp. Stick to it until you get there."
Harvey Mackay

Hey, it is real easy to get side tracked when life throws you one curveball after another. And it’s not all that hard to lose your steam when the going begins to get more than a little rough. In those trying times when hope is in desperately short supply and your energy is on the wane, packing it in sure can sound mighty tempting to be sure.

But how in the world can you expect to get where you want to go if you're not willing to stick around long enough to get there? It is in these sticky make or break moments — when you are sorely tempted to hang it up for good — that you find out who you are and even more importantly, what you are made of as well. Right then and right there, when life’s heat is turned up way past the boiling point, it is crucial for you need to stick in there until… you get there.

“Speak softly and carry a big stick; you will go far."
Theodore Roosevelt

Carrying along a big stick-to-it attitude certainly won’t hurt your chances either. When you set your sights on living the life you deserve to live, making those once in a lifetime dreams that make you come alive with unbridled excitement and enthusiasm come true, you’ll quickly develop a stick-to-it mentality that cannot be stopped or defeated.

You might want to take a lesson or two from the turtle when it comes to taking chances. Just like the turtle, you’ll only make progress when you are willing to stick your neck out. You will discover that life's sticky situations aren't all that difficult when you carry that big stick with you everywhere you go.

The Bottom Line: Anything and everything is possible when you stick with your game plan.
