Power Up Passages

Do Something.

Brought to you by

November 14, 2006.

”You're alive. Do something.”
Barbara Hall

In a world where too many people make something out of nothing far too often, there is an appalling lack of go getters going out and getting it done. It is truly amazing how we all too frequently blow little things out of proportion and make mountains out of mole hills yet cannot seem to get around to doing the things that need to get done.

Preoccupied with video games, cell phones, emails, text messaging and the internet at your fingertips, is it any wonder why so precious little time is devoted to more productive activities that can make a real difference in our lives? Oh I know, you will tell me how you need to keep in touch with your friends, relatives and acquaintances and still need a little ‘down’ time to recharge your batteries. No problem — as long as you dedicate some prime time daily to doing something truly special with your God given gifts.

”The time for action is now. It's never too late to do something.”
Carl Sandburg

This prime time is your time and yours alone. Instead of yakking away on the phone or pounding away at a video game, why not choose to tap into your creative genius and see what happens? These magical moments, set aside each and every day where you allow your fertile mind to wander without interruption or distraction, can turn you on and turn your life completely around — if given half a chance.

You will be astonished at how imaginative and innovative your mind can become when you cut loose from the daily grind and set sail. Free and unfettered, with no disruptions or diversions to distract you, you open yourself up to a world of limitless possibilities where absolutely nothing is out of your reach.

”The greatest use of life is to spend it for something that will outlast it.”
William James

With all of the noise and hubbub out of the way, it’s time to just relax and unwind. Step off the accelerator and slow things down. And don’t force anything; just let your mind go. Allow your mind to wander and drift wherever it wants, placing absolutely no borders or limitations on where it may go.

Sooner or later, all the things you have ever dreamed of doing, being or having will invariably come into focus. All right, settle in and enjoy the show — this is exactly where you want to be. You’re now in the ZONE! SEE yourself doing the things you have always wanted to do. FEEL the joy of living out your fondest dreams.

”Do something. If it doesn't work, do something else. No idea is too crazy.”
Jim Hightower

While you’re in the zone, why not start conjuring up ways to make these dreams come true? Hey, don’t laugh, some of the best ideas in history came about in the exact same fashion — waltzing right through an open mind. Be careful not to allow what you do or don’t have get in your way. Before long, ideas will begin darting in and out of your mind. Wild ideas, crazy ideas, ideas that may seem a bit off the wall will zoom in from out of nowhere. Instead of tossing them aside as too goofy or out of reach, write them down — right then and there. And keep writing as long as the ideas keep coming.

Once the flow of ideas subsides, take a look at your list. It’s important to remember that you cannot conceive of an idea if you didn’t have the ability to achieve it. Instead of discounting the list as a bunch of ridiculous ideas, I want you to take an idea and run with it. If it doesn’t pan out, don’t give up. Just grab another idea and give it a shot. And keep grabbing and keep shooting until you make something happen.

E. L. Simpson once said that “getting an idea should be like sitting down on a pin. It should make you jump up and do something.” Not bad advice at all. Grab your ideas each and every day and do something; something that will make a difference in your life and the lives of those around you as well.

The Bottom Line: In a world where there is so much to be done, find something special to do each and every day — and then do it.
