Power Up Passages

Flying High.

Brought to you by
The Power Performance Program ©




January 14, 2007.

"The air up there in the clouds is very pure and fine, bracing and delicious. And why shouldn't it be? It is the same the angels breathe."
Mark Twain

Have you ever noticed those dynamic, super charged people who always seem to be up, even when everyone else seems mired deep down in the dumps? Regardless of whatever that happens to be going on in their lives — be it good, bad or somewhere in between — these confident, self-assured winners keep their heads up while constantly exuding an upbeat and optimistic air about them.

It makes you wonder how in the world do they do it? How can they stay so ‘up’ when you’d think their surrounding circumstances would drag them down to the ground. How do they consistently find the good in every situation when everyone else tends to focus in on the bad? In short, how do they stay so sky high in a world so chock full of problems, difficulties and troubles?

"My soul is in the sky."
William Shakespeare

Staying up when everyone around you seems down in the doldrums is never an easy road to travel. So why not follow the lead of the sky high contingent and choose not to travel it? Instead of allowing the down and out crowd to draw you down to their level, why not choose a different path and blaze a different trail?

Rather than zeroing in on the bad, which has become way too easy to do nowadays, why not opt to channel your efforts and energies into a more powerful, more positive direction? Instead of being bogged down in a going nowhere and accomplishing nothing quagmire, why not elect to spread your wings and started flying high above the crowd?

"When once you have tasted flight, you will forever walk the earth with your eyes turned skyward, for there you have been, and there you will always long to return."
Leonardo da Vinci

Staying up or alternatively, feeling down and out, is always a choice. No, it’s not chance or circumstance that determines your lot in life — it’s your attitude. A good attitude produces positive feelings, a positive approach to living and yes, positive results as well. A negative, doom and gloom attitude produces, well… you guessed it, less than desirable results.

Getting up and even more importantly, staying up is not only the best choice, it’s the ONLY choice as far as the winners are concerned. They realize that it’s their attitude that ultimately determines their altitude. And the same holds true for you. It all begins and ends with this simple rule of thumb: the higher you feel daily — the higher you fly. The sooner you get this positive powered precept working in your favor, the sooner you’ll launch your life toward the heavens above.

"The desire to reach for the sky runs deep in our human psyche."
Cesar Pelli

Rather than remain glued to the ground, going no place worth going and doing nothing worth doing, the high-flying achievers choose to take off and soar. They get up and stay up, vowing to never allow anything or anyone to bring them back down ever again. And so should you.

By staying focused on all of the positive aspects of life — and there are plenty to choose from — you can immediately and immeasurably heighten your happiness, your enjoyment and your all-important feelings of self-worth and accomplishment. By constantly accenting the positive and averting the negative, you can propel your life to new heights daily.

It’s time to unshackle yourself from all the negative thoughts, things and people who have held you down in the past. Not one negative aspect of your life has ever taken you anywhere you’ve ever dreamed of going. It’s time to turn away from the bad and turn on the good. It’s time to take charge of your life, take a lesson from the high fliers and take off. It’s your turn to FLY like the eagles above.

The Bottom Line: Don’t stay stuck to the floor. Spread your wings and soar.
