Power Up Passages

Lighten Up and You'll Brighten Up.

Brought to you by

March 18, 2008.

"It's not the load that breaks you down, it's the way you carry it."
Lena Horne

Life can get pretty heavy at times. Sometimes we can handle the load, sometimes the load handles us. And sometimes the pressures and problems we face rumble right over us like a runaway steamroller.

There are few feelings more hopeless than feeling like the weight of the world is hanging around your shoulders. You want to lighten the load, you NEED to lighter the load, but the load keeps getting heavier and heavier until you can barely hold up any longer.

"Victory belongs to the most persevering."
Napoleon Bonaparte

Far too often we allow problems to go unchecked and pressures to build. Rather than tackling life's problems when they show up, we bury our heads in the sand and hope they somehow go away. Sometimes they do, most of the time they don't. And when they don't, we hang quite a heavy noose around our necks.

Weak, weary and totally worn out, your energy sapped and your motivation completely kaput, you are tempted to give in and throw in the towel.


Instead of giving up, why not lighten up instead?

"The man who can drive himself further once the effort gets painful is the man who will win."
Roger Bannister

Sure, there are times when life gets really heavy. And life can become quite burdensome on occasion. But we can still lighten our load considerably by addressing the weighty issues when they occur. The key is to never allow the load to pile up.

Dealing with the difficult times we encounter is never a walk in the park. After all, there are thousands of things we would all rather do than going toe to toe with our problems. But there is only one sure way to lighten the load. And that's to put out the fire before it becomes an inferno.

That means handling with your problems when they happen each time, every time; without exception, without hesitation.

"I do not pray for a lighter load, but for a stronger back."
Phillips Brooks

What kind of heavy load have you been carrying around? What kind of burdens have you been shouldering for who knows how long? What kind of toll have they taken on your life? Instead of carrying around the weight of the world on your shoulders, wouldn't you prefer to lighten your load right now?

Instead of allowing your problems to take over, I urge you to take the wheel and plow right over, around or through them. That's right, smash right through them, each and every one. Get rid of them and get on down the road.

The minute you start lightening your load, you're going to notice something else taking place. You're going to start feeling better than you have felt in years. The weight you have been carting around will be gone, making you feel a whole lot lighter. Your outlook on life will become immeasurably enhanced and much brighter. Best of all, you'll get a lot more done with a lot less stress.

So go ahead and lighten up - and you'll brighten up.

The Bottom Line: Lighten your load and you'll live a happier, healthier, wealthier life.
