Power Up Passages

Not A Chance.

Brought to you by

December 27, 2006.

“There is no such thing as no chance.”
Henry Ford

Have you ever been told that there’s no chance that you’ll accomplish something that you fervently desire? Most of us have at one time or another. And it’s not a good feeling when someone you know shoots you down before you have an opportunity to make something happen.

Even though you believe there’s at least some chance you can get the job done, you can fall prey to what others tell you about yourself and your abilities if you’re not careful. Like it or not, there is always going to be folks who constantly attempt to undermine your confidence by telling you what you can’t do. And these people can be extremely hazardous to your health and well being.

“The best advice I can give is to ignore advice. Life is too short to be distracted by the opinions of others.”
Russel Edson

Sometimes people try to hold you back for what they believe are the right reasons, simply trying to prevent you from getting hurt. Then there are others who want to hold you down because they’re not going anywhere themselves and want to take you along for the ride.

Keeping your head up while others are tearing you down takes more than a sprinkling of unbreakable, unbeatable grit. It’s truly amazing at the number of people out there who are more than willing to offer up advice on what you are incapable of achieving in life. In their eyes, you’re never going to be good enough or smart enough to get where you want to go. Never! But you know better, don’t you?

“Don't take a butcher's advice on how to cook meat. If he knew, he'd be a chef.”
Andy Rooney

Hey, it’s easy to get down on yourself when everyone around you has already jumped aboard the beat-you-down bandwagon. And it’s hard sometimes not to buy into the negative garbage when others trash your abilities nonstop day after day. But come on now, are you going to allow the dooms day crowd to steal your thunder and stifle your creativity? And are you going to let them pull the rug out from under you on your trek to making your dreams come true? Not a chance, my friend.

The key to tuning out the unsolicited ‘can’t do it’ advice from others is precisely that… tune them out completely. You’ve got to turn off the bad while simultaneously turning up the good full volume. Why in the world should you associate yourself with negative people who habitually hold you back or hold you down? You shouldn’t. And why should you listen to those who belittle your talents or shortchange your capabilities? You won’t any longer.

“A word to the wise ain't necessary; it's the stupid ones who need the advice.”
Bill Cosby

Letting your guard down, even for a moment or two, allows doubts and uncertainty to creep in; which in turn opens the door to hesitation and indecision. Then, before you know it, you’ve bought into the ‘you’re not good enough or smart enough’ refrain hook, line and sinker. That’s why you need to slam the door on those who attempt to put down you and your abilities. That’s right; you need to slam the door hard, lock it up good and tight and throw away the key.

You are indeed good enough, and yes, smart enough to achieve any worthwhile goal you set for yourself. It’s important to remember that God never burdens us with more than we can bear. Anything we can conceive in our minds and believe in our hearts can be achieved in everyday action. Anything at all!

Life is and always has been about making choices and taking chances. Be sure to make the right choice and take a chance on yourself each and every day. Forget about what others say you can’t do and just go ahead and get it done. And more than anything else; never, ever say ‘not a chance’ to the winner you were born to be.

The Bottom Line: There’s not a chance that you won’t make it all the way to the top.
