Power Up Passages

Brush With Greatness.

Brought to you by
The Power Performance Program ©




February 12, 2006.

”The greatest thing a man can do in this world is to make the most possible out of the stuff that has been given him. This is success, and there is no other."
Orison Sweet Marden

Many of us rarely associate the term ‘great’ with our day to day activities. Oh sure, we may stumble upon an exceptional day every now and again, but having one super sensational day after another is little more than a pipedream to the vast majority of people. Unfortunately, way too many of us have resigned ourselves into believing that greatness is something someone else gets to experience, embrace and enjoy.

Far too often we see our lives as a never ceasing grind, one monotonous, mind-numbing day after another. Weeks turn into months and finally into years of just barely getting by, constantly struggling to make ends meet. Instead of taking pleasure in one of life’s greatest gifts — a day filled with happiness, fun and excitement — we somehow manage to miss most of the fun life has in store for us.

”Man's greatness lies in his power of thought."
Blaise Pascal

The old axiom ‘what you see is what you get’ couldn’t be more appropriate when it comes to scripting your life. Unbeknownst to many, the way we ‘see’ life and the manner in which we approach each day sets the tempo for each of our twenty four hours on earth.

If you wake up seeing life as a humdrum, ho-hum yawner hardly worth living, then life will inevitably dish out a snoozer of a loser day for you. On the other hand, if you jump out of bed every morning raring to go, full of excitement and energized from head to toe, you can set yourself and the world around you on fire.

Telling yourself that this kind of excitement isn’t in the cards or is just phony boloney is hurting no one but yourself and your loved ones. You can get excited, energized and enthused about every single day of your life — if you truly want to do so. And why in the world wouldn’t you want to do so?

”Believe that you possess a basic goodness, which is the foundation for the greatness you can ultimately achieve."
Les Brown

Wouldn’t your life become a whole lot better with a tidal wave of the enthusiasm rushing through your body every minute of every day? You bet it would; and it can be starting today!

Each dawning day offers a priceless opportunity to paint your own breath taking rainbow; a once-in-a-lifetime chance to immerse yourself in the stunning splendor of a day teeming with vibrant, dynamic, fun-filled activities. Sound pretty good? You bet it does! And better yet, by taking charge and charging ahead with a wellspring of newfound enthusiasm, you’ll discover just how wonderful a great day can be.

Best of all, these remarkable days, chock full of incredible, life changing moments, are there for the taking. That’s right; they are there for each and every one of us. But you’ve got to snatch them when the snatching is good. So I guess the big question is this: will you reach out and grab them — or will you allow them slip right through your fingertips?

”Responsibility is the price of greatness."
Winston Churchill

Contrary to what many believe, these once-in-a lifetime days are anything but once-in-a-lifetime. After all, don’t we get the chance to choose the canvas, the colors and the subject of our paintings daily? You bet we do! We can make the most of our immense God-given talents and paint a masterful masterpiece each and every day of our lives.

Wouldn’t you dearly love to kick start your days with a wild, crazy, spur-of-the-moment zest and zeal that really gets you rocking? And instead of waiting for something to happen each day, wouldn't you love to make things happen yourself right from the get-go; boldly stepping out and into the life you’ve dreamed about yet have never dared to live? You can — and you will — the minute you start brushing each stroke of your life with greatness.

The Bottom Line: Brush boldly, confidently, with all the passion and purpose you can muster. Before you know it, you’ll be brushing with greatness yourself.
