Power Up Passages

Taking Matters Into Your Own Hands.

Brought to you by

October 6, 2007.

"Finding out what matters most in your life is what really matters the most."
Greg Hickman

What matters most in your life? What are the things that make you happy, that get you going and keep you going? What are the things you most cherish, those special activities make your life truly special?

Most of us can easily answer the questions above. After all, who doesn't really know what truly matters most in his or her life? But here's where things get a bit tricky. While most of us can quickly state those things that make our lives worthwhile, far fewer can actually assert that they're making these things happen right now.

"What really matters is what you do with what you have."
Shirley Lord

Unfortunately, the vast majority fail to make those things that matter most come to life. Now that doesn't mean these folks don't want to make their dreams come true, because they do. In fact, very few people want their lives to be anything less than what they have always dreamed they could be... and more. Yet they frequently fail to make the things that matter most to them actually happen for one very simple reason: they fail to take control of their lives.

In spite of their best intentions, they constantly allow life's various distractions, obstacles and problems to sidetrack them and knock them off kilter. Their dreams are replaced with their day to day struggles to barely get by. Over time, they eventually lose sight of their dreams altogether.

"If what you're working for really matters, you'll give it all you've got."
Nido Qubein

Staying focused is by no means an easy task, especially when you consider all the hurdles that must be cleared daily. But if we're going to realize the very best life has to offer, we've got to consistently zero in on the things that really matter. Only this type of laser beam focus will allow us to make our lives the outstanding adventures they deserve to be.

Instead of permitting those things that matter most to be pushed to the sidelines by life's toils and troubles, we need to pursue our most treasured goals and aspirations with all the passion, fervor and zeal we can muster.

"It's how we spend our time here and now that really matters."
Marcia Wieder

You do know what you want out of life, don't you? Come on now, how many times have you clearly held each of your cherished hopes and dreams in your mind, vividly visualizing yourself attaining each and every one of them? Plenty of times, right? You could see them race across the silver screen of your mind in a radiant, brilliant display so real you could almost reach out and touch them, couldn't you? But wanting them to come true isn't nearly enough. After all, wanting is easy. Anybody can want just about anything. Whether or not you are willing to go after your dreams with everything you've is all that really matters.

In order to fulfill your date with destiny, you must be willing to lay it all on the line... and then some. It's that simple - and that difficult - all at the same time. Most people are not willing to make such a sacrifice. How about you? Are you willing to pay the price to live the life you've imagined?

Hey, it isn't really 'paying' a price when you are chasing your rainbow, is it? Of course not, not even close. You never pay a price when you are fully immersed in something that really matters, something that's really important to you. In fact, when you think about it, you are actually enjoying the price of bringing your dreams to life, aren't you? You bet you are!

When you decide once and for all what you want and dedicate yourself to making it happen, you take control of your life. You can get anywhere you want to go when you are willing to do whatever it takes to get there. Isn't it high time time that you took matters into your own hands and made your dreams come true today?

The Bottom Line: Make what really matters matter by taking matters into your own hands - and then making them happen.
