Power Up Passages

Spur of the Moment

Brought to you by
The Power Performance Program ©




November 26, 2005.

”You can't let one bad moment spoil a bunch of good ones.”
Dale Earnhardt

If life is anything, it’s an emotional roller coaster ride. One minute you’re feeling as high as a kite soaring far above the ground, with everything going your way. It almost seems like life is almost too good to be true, just about as picture perfect as it can possibly be. And then, a few moments later… boom, down you go in a split second — feeling about as low as you can go. Up one moment, down the next — life’s ever changing moments keeps us all on our toes.

Day after day, week after week, emotions run the gamut; sometimes hot, sometimes cold, sometimes somewhere in between. But no doubt about it, run they do daily. These stirring sensations that burn deep inside your soul can charge you up and over the highest mountaintop — or drag you down lower than the deepest ocean floor. No doubt about it, the ability to harness those action-packed emotions and channel them into positive, worthwhile pursuits can literally make or break the life you get to lead.

”We do not remember days, we remember moments.”
Cesare Pavese

Regardless of whether you’re getting tossed up or down or all around, there is one thing you can count on. You can bet your bottom dollar that life is going to provide you a wild and wooly ride. But that’s what makes life exciting in the first place. Reaching into life’s grab bag of wide ranging sensations makes your life the invigorating, exhilarating and electrifying ride that it is.

So allow me to pose this question to you. If life can offer you all sorts of magical moments — good and bad and in between — why should you wait around and allow whatever life dishes out to shape your future? Quite simply; you shouldn’t. Instead of waiting around and hoping for the best, why not reach out and snare one of life’s breath taking moments and make it your very own?

”Live in the only moment of time over which you have any control: now.”
Denis Waitley

Just like every one of us, you have experienced frozen in time moments when something out of the ordinary grabs your attention or catches your fancy right out of the blue. Without warning, an astonishing aura of energy sweeps in and overwhelms your senses, immediately stimulating every fiber of your being. You feel excited yet a little anxious, hopeful but a bit apprehensive.

Your heart feels like its going explode though your chest, ablaze with possibilities. An almost overwhelming desire to grab life by the horns and make something happen right now powerfully pulsates throughout your body. The red-hot emotion of the moment resonates from head to toe, zapping a steady stream of resounding shivers right to the bone.

”The golden moments in the stream of life rush past us, and we see nothing but sand; the angels come to visit us, and we only know them when they are gone.”
George Eliot

You want to act, you need to act, wishing in the worse way that you could somehow harness the brilliance laid out before your eyes. The moment is there for the taking, yet you feel glued to your seat. Anything and everything you have ever dreamed of doing, having and being is well within your reach, but your hands seem stuck by your side. Then, in a flash, the moment is gone as quickly as it arrived. Ever been there? Sure you have, we all have at one time or another.

Why were you unable to reach out and embrace life as it could be, as it should be? In all likelihood, you were frightened by the prospects of falling down or failing in your quest to make the moment your own. These feelings of nervousness and apprehension prevented you from seeing the bigger picture — a dazzling image of you living the life you deserve.

”It is in your moments of decision that your destiny is shaped.”
Anthony Robbins

Admit it, you’ve imagined yourself living this picture perfect life a thousand times over, haven’t you? And you’ve that held picture perfect image deep down in your heart for oh so long as well. Isn’t it about time to harness the raw power of your emotions and get them working for you instead of against you? You bet it is!

Look, a lot of people have feelings of trepidation when life changing moments come calling. It’s only natural. But please keep this close to your heart when a spur of the moment spurs you on: if you are ever going to break away from the chains that have held you down and kept you down for years, you need to answer the challenge in that spur of the moment.

Instead of slinking away or backing off, fearful that you’ll make a mistake, why not open up and allow these spur of the moment feelings to take control? And if you happen to get down knocked off your feet in these moments of truth, don’t worry about it. Just jump right back up and capture that moment and make it yours.

From now on, anytime and anywhere you find yourself filled to overflowing with an almost uncontrollable urge to try something different or choose another direction, why fight the feeling? Instead of giving up or giving in like you’ve done in the past, allowing life’s moments to pass you by, why not just go with the flow and let it rip? From this moment on, you need to start making your move in the spur of the moment. Then, before you know it, those moments will be yours — forever.

The Bottom Line: Let the spur of the moment spur you on.
