Power Up Passages

Getting Even.

Brought to you by
The Power Performance Program ©




November 13, 2006.

“You cannot get ahead while you are getting even.”
Dick Armey

To some folks, life is a game of getting even. It seems that whenever fate deals them a particularly lousy hand or when things don’t go their way, they look for ways to get even with whomever they believe crossed them. Instead of looking for ways to get better, they waste their time trying to even the score. You can do better.

Luckily, we get to choose how we respond to any adversity we encounter in life. In our most trying moments of difficulty, which we all deal with from time to time, we can become bitter… or better. And that means getting even. Now I’m not suggesting that you get back at others in an effort to get even with them; far from it. I’m talking about getting even better than ever before.

“Keeping score of old scores and scars, getting even and one-upping, always makes you less than you are.”
Malcolm S. Forbes

The moment you get knocked down, you need to get up, get even and then get going again. And that means getting even better, getting even smarter and getting even stronger than you have ever been in your life.

The choice is ours… and the choice is clear. If you’re ever going to reach out and make your life everything you have ever dreamed it could be, you’ve got to STOP trying to get even with others and START getting even within.

”Troubles are often the tools by which God fashions us for better things.”
Henry Ward Beecher

We are only granted a limited number of days on earth. How we use or abuse our time makes all the difference in the quality of the lives we get to live. If we continually focus our efforts and energies on destructive thoughts and negative actions, we doom ourselves to living an unhappy, unfulfilled lifetime of failing and falling short.

But if we direct all of our talent and God given potential on getting even better with each passing day, we can make our lives come alive with more purpose and passion than we ever believed possible. When we look for ways to get even better than ever before, we magically plug ourselves into an almost electrifying exhilaration that words can barely describe.

"Stop talking. Start walking."
L.M. Heroux

By getting even better than the day before, an energized, revitalized, in fact almost euphoric feeling of excitement seizes control of our hearts and souls. We can feel it, REALLY FEEL IT from our heads to our toes. And it feels great! Instead of doing without, all bitter and bothered, we start doing within and making our days count for something truly special. Instead of squandering our energy looking to ways to get even, we make the most of our time — indelibly stamping each day with an emphatic exclamation point.

Come on now, it just doesn’t make sense to fritter away even an hour of your time by looking for destructive ways to get even with others, does it? Of course it doesn’t. Wouldn’t you prefer to use your invaluable time searching out ways to get even happier and healthier than you have ever felt before? Of course you would. So what’s holding you back? You can do it — and do it right now. When things don’t go your way, don’t get down; just start looking for ways to get even… even better than ever before, that is.

The Bottom Line: Energy spent in getting even with others would be better spent working to get ahead.
