Power Up Passages

Batteries Not Included.

January 28, 2008.

"Energy and persistence alter all things."
Benjamin Franklin

It sometimes feels like the whole world is suffering from some sort of energy crisis. I'm not talking about the type of energy required to fuel your car or heat and cool your home. No, not at all. What I'm referring to is the general absence of fire power in people all around us.

Way too many people have seemingly adopted a laissez-faire, laid back approach where just going through the motions - doing barely enough to get by - is good enough for them. It's almost as if their internal batteries have gone kaput and they don't really care. They just keep sleep-walking their way through life.

"If you run your race, you'll win. Channel your energy. Focus."
Carol Lewis

Then there are others who always have energy to burn yet never seem to consistently channel that energy into anything truly worthwhile. Oh sure, they have their fleeting moments of glory now and again, but that's about as far as they go.

They could do better, a whole lot better in fact, but they rarely stay on track long enough to make any sort of positive impact. Out of focus and out of control, they frenetically bounce from one pursuit to another, never sticking with anything long enough to actually finish the job. These high spirited folks are so busy chasing their tail that they forget to chase their dreams.

"Give your dreams all you've got and you'll be amazed at the energy that comes out of you."
William James

At first blush it appears the low energy contingent greatly outnumbers the high-octane group. And that's probably the case. Yet the net results produced by the two group are about the same. Why? Because when you're talking about getting things done, there is very little difference in being out of gas and being out of focus.

In order to get those things we ardently desire in life, we must not only generate the requisite drive and enthusiasm, we must also direct this positive charged energy in the right direction. We need to specifically zero in on those things we want to have, experience and achieve, then focus all of our energy into making them come to life. Not some of our attention, not part of our effort; but everything we've got. All of the time.

"The average person puts only 25% of his energy and ability into his work. The world takes off its hat to those who put in more than 50% of their capacity, and stands on its head for those few and far between souls who devote 100%."
Andrew Carnegie

Just how badly do you want to make your life all that you've hoped and dreamed it could become? A little, a lot; maybe a whole lot? Let's face it, if you don't want it - and I do mean really, really want it deep down in your heart and soul - you can forget about ever having it. You will spend a lifetime being out hustled, out maneuvered and out worked by those who do.

And while really wanting it is a great start, wanting won't get it done by itself. Getting it done takes persistent, consistent, unwavering effort.

Worried that you don't have enough 'oomph' to get the job done? Don't. You've got enough; way more than enough. Inside you burns a red-hot need to succeed, a fiery passion to give life your very best shot. You want to win, in fact, you need to win more than you can possibly imagine. This fireball of positive powered energy wants to get outside and make something happen. No, it NEEDS to get turned loose. You've got to give it that chance.

Do what you need to do, when it needs to be done - and do it with everything you've got. Just like the Energizer bunny, you need to keep going and going and going. Each time, every time, all of the time. Before you know it, you'll have gone farther than you ever thought possible.

Enjoy the trip.

The Bottom Line: You can get everything you want when you give it everything you've got.
