Power Up Passages

Making Your Move.

Brought to you by
The Power Performance Program ©



December 20, 2003.

“Either move or be moved.”
Colin Powell

Have you ever been tempted to really go for something, but for one reason or another you held yourself back? Of course you have; in fact, we all have from time to time. Instead of making your move, letting your hair down and really cutting loose, you opted to lay back and play it safe. What happened?

Why didn’t you just let it rip, going for the gusto with every ounce of energy pent up inside of you? What kept you from throwing caution to the wind and letting it all hang out in an all out effort to bring home the prize? Short and sweet, why didn’t you MAKE YOUR MOVE?

Since your initial instinct was to throw your entire heart and soul into the effort and make something happen, why did you choose to throw in the towel and give up without a fight? Instead of making your move, somebody else stepped up and made something happen in your place. You, now on the outside looking in, simply got moved out of the way.

“The man who does not give up can move mountains.”
Ernest Hello

In life’s make or break moments, when what we do or don’t do can literally make us or break us, we’ve got to be willing to lay it all on the line. Not some of it and not some of the time. No, that kind of lackadaisical effort never generates much more than lackluster results, if that. And doing nothing and going nowhere is never going to get us anywhere close to where we’ve always dreamed of going, is it? In order to make your dreams come alive with fervor and passion, you have to be willing get fired up and give it all that you’ve got — all of the time.

OK, I’ll grant you that this type of all-out commitment is not for the faint of heart. And sure, putting it all on the line does sound a little risky doesn’t it? But so what? Come on, what’s the worse that can happen if you give it all you’ve got and you come up short?

Maybe you’ll feel a little embarrassed and sure, nobody likes to have others see them flubbing up big time. And you might, after a super-duper whopper of a goof up, feel like crawling in a hole, hoping no one noticed your major league screw up. But hey, like all feelings, these feelings will quickly fade away.

Like it or not, we’re all going to make mistakes. And regardless of whether we play it safe or go for the gold, we’re going to make some real giant gaffes in our lives. So if slip-ups are just a part of everyday living, then why not choose to boldly climb into the saddle and enjoy the ride of your life?

“Let him that would move the world, first move himself.”

How can you ever expect to get better if you are unwilling to give yourself a chance to get better? The sooner you realize that that life is not some sort of walk through or practice session and that you are playing for keeps, the sooner you can start living your life the way it was meant to be lived. A life filled wall to wall with energy, excitement and enthusiasm. A life that gets immeasurably better with each passing day. The life you desire — and deserve — to live.

Since you’re going to make mistakes any way you play it, why not take the wraps off and get busy playing your life to the hilt? Rather than waste one more minute fussing and fretting about what might have been, why not make what you want to happen by getting yourself happening right now?

So how about it; are you up to the challenge?

“The only way to make sense out of change is to plunge into it, move with it and join the dance.”
Alan W. Watts

Winners are those unique champions who make up their minds to make their move when the move needs to be made, never concerning themselves about what might go wrong or the mistakes they may make. They choose to channel all of their energy and efforts into making things happen, quickly making decisions whenever and wherever they’re needed. And what if they make a mistake along the way? No sweat; they just jump back in — with both feet!

You too need to get shakin’ and bakin’ and get your life moving in the right direction. But in order to achieve your ultimate destiny on earth, you’ve got to be willing to let go and put your trust in your abundant God given abilities. Once you recognize the fact that you have been engineered for success from birth, bestowed with all of the gifts and talents you'll ever need to take you anywhere that you have ever dreamed of going, you will soon be well on your way.

Instead of holding the reins too tight, afraid that you may slip or fall off, here's a better idea: let go and let it flow. Why worry about this or that or the other, stewing about what may potentially knock you down or knock you off course? Has all of that fussing and fuming ever done you one lick of good? Not one bit, has it? So why not kick down the doors and kick your life into high gear by turning off life’s distractions and tuning into the magnificent music that plays so sweetly inside your soul. Go ahead, don’t be shy. Put on your dancing shoes and start swaying to the beautiful beat that is life.

The Bottom Line: Why wait for the right time to make your move when that right time is right now?
