Power Up Passages

Living In 3-D.

Brought to you by
The Power Performance Program ©




February 4, 2007.

“Anytime you suffer a setback or disappointment, put your head down and plow ahead.”
Les Brown

I’m sure you have heard the expression ‘today is the first day of the rest of your life.’ While the phrase may be a bit overworked, it’s so true. That’s because today, this day we’re living right this minute, is our best opportunity to make our lives everything we have ever wanted them to be and more. Right here, right now, right this very moment. Yet far too often we carelessly allow the beauty that beckons daily to wither on the vine.

As the seemingly incessant array of distractions, disappointments and doubts encountered in the real world take center stage in a disheartening and demoralizing fashion, we oftentimes lose our fire and desire to keep fighting the good fight. Before long, if we are not careful, a dark and depressing feeling of doom begins to creep in. Overpowered and overwrought by the constant din of negativity, we rarely make a dent in the destinies we desire.

“Your doubts are not as powerful as your desires, unless you make them so.”
Marcia Wieder

If we are ever going to live our dreams and fulfill our God-given promise, we need to eliminate those 3-D’s that hold us down and hold us back: the distractions that disrupt our momentum, the disappointments that dampen our spirits and the insidious doubts that spark our worst fears within.

The best way to get rid of those pesky, unwanted and definitely undesirable 3-D’s is to, well, get rid of them. Rather than dwell on the negatives, which is far too easy to do, we can change the pace by substituting something much more positive in their place. What we need are a new set of 3-D’s that can get us going and keep us moving in the right direction as well.

“Success is almost totally dependent upon drive and persistence. The extra energy required to make another effort or try another approach is the secret of winning.”
Denis Waitley

OK, sounds good, but where do we start? Here’s an idea. Why not get the ball rolling by replacing those disabling and downright distasteful distractions, disappointments and doubts we definitely don’t want with a triple dose of something a lot more positive in nature, such as desire, drive and direction?

Instead of allowing these negative things to bring you down, why not turn the tables by cranking things up a notch or two? Why not reignite the fire of red-hot desire that burns deep within? It’s there; all it needs is a spark. So spark it. And while you’re at it, why not reawaken that dynamic drive to thrive silently stirring deep inside? By kicking desire and drive into high gear, you’ll breathe renewed life into the motivation, inspiration and direction you once knew.

“Desire is the starting point of all achievement; not a hope, not a wish, but a keen pulsating desire which transcends everything.”
Napoleon Hill

But let’s not stop there. Not by a long shot. There are other powerful 3-D combinations you can get working in your favor right now. Discovery, dedication and discipline are three more that come to mind; a three pronged combination that can change more than just your attitude.

Look inside and you’ll discover more strength and staying power than you ever thought possible. You have what it takes to live a different life and make a difference as well. It just takes a double shot of discipline and dedication. When you consistently do what needs to be dome when t needs doing, you are well on your way to carving out your distinctive niche in life.

“It is not because things are difficult that we do not dare; it is because we do not dare that they are difficult.”

And here’s one last set of 3-D’s for the road: dreams, determination and daring. Your dreams are your road map to success. Follow your dreams and you follow your heart. But dreams alone aren’t enough. You must show the grit and determination to persevere when every reason for continuing has long since left the building. Few people exhibit this refuse to lose approach; and it’s these very few select individuals who ultimately achieve their dreams.

Wishing and wanting rarely produce the results you truly desire. You’ve got to really want to make something happen — and then have the unflinching verve and vigor to take a dare and courageously lay it all on the line in order to achieve greatly. Dare to be different, dare to take a chance and dare to make your life everything you’ve dreamed it could be.

I don’t just dare you, I triple dare you.

The Bottom Line: It’s time to live your life in a decidedly dynamic, demonstrative 3-D fashion.
