Power Up Passages

February 12, 2007.

“When one door closes another door opens; but we so often look so long and so regretfully upon the closed door, that we do not see the ones which open for us.”
Alexander Graham Bell

As the sun brilliantly arises unveiling a brand new day, we awaken to a magnificent multitude of new ideas that have the potential to reshape our lives and change our direction. With a fresh day at hand, abounding with fresh opportunities, we are offered an unparalleled chance at a fresh start, a fresh beginning. Yet far too often we begin the new day in the same old fashion, as if we were on some sort of monotonous cruise control.

Rather than embracing the endless possibilities that beckon beyond, we fall right back into endless repetition that almost bores us to tears. Day after mind-numbing day, the same old routine becomes, well… the same. Dull and dreary becomes the name of the hum-drum game, yet somehow we still hope and pray that our lives will get better. Seriously, how can we expect a different result in we insist on doing the same old rigmarole?

“Behold, I have set before thee an open door, and no man can shut it.”
The Bible

If we keep on doing what we’ve always done in the past, we’re going to keep getting what we’ve always got — the short end of the stick. The only way our lives can get richer and more rewarding is to change what we are doing, starting today. Instead of constantly closing the doors on a better life by closing ourselves off to new ideas and new opportunities, we need to open each and every door we come across and see what lies inside.

So many of us want to change our lives but are scared to death of making changes. In fact, any sort of change — big and small alike — chills us right to the bone, a terrifying prospect to be sure. Doesn’t really make a lot of sense, but that’s precisely the way a lot of us think and behave. We are so set in our ways, even if our current ways are getting us nowhere, that we refuse to take chances, refuse to make choices and refuse to roll the dice on a better life. Even though we have little to lose, we choose not to lose the little that we have.

“Take a lesson from the mosquito. She never waits for an opening — she makes one.”
Kirk Kirkpatrick

So there we stay, stuck in a unexciting, uninspiring, unemotional rut, with every day looking and feeling the same: a day late, a dollar short and no closer to making our dreams come true. Nothing new, nothing exciting, nothing much of anything at all dictates our way too somber mood. Ho-hum.

Rather than allowing even one more day to needlessly slip away, why not get a better grip on your life by opening yourself up to dramatically different approach to living? Instead of doing the same old stuff day in and day out, why not open some new doors and try something new, something totally out of the ordinary and see what happens?

“We keep moving forward, opening new doors, and doing new things, because we're curious and curiosity keeps leading us down new paths.”
Walt Disney

You’ll be amazed at how great your life can get the moment you start opening the doors that surround you. Hey, don’t wait for someone to open the door, get off your duff and turn the knob yourself. By being more than you think you are and doing more than you think you can, you’ll be able to see what you’ve never perceived before. There, laid out right before you, is the pathway to fulfilling your destiny and transforming your life into something exciting, something special, and something super sensational.

Opportunity rarely knocks on your door. Don’t you wish that life was that simple? Rather, you must knock on opportunity's door if you eagerly wish to enter. And just one knock rarely does the trick. You need to knock and knock and knock some more... and keep on knocking. But knocking alone doesn’t get the job done either. You must have the courage to open each and every door and boldly stride inside; stepping into the life you’ve always dreamed of living.

The Bottom Line: If you want to change what is happening you must first change what you're doing.
