Power Up Passages

The Need for Speed.

Brought to you by

May 8, 2008.

"The more I train the more I realize I have more speed in me."
Leroy Burrell

When it comes to living our lives, there are no speed limits. No stop signs, no traffic lights, nothing whatsoever to slow us down or hold us back. We can go as fast as we can, as often as we like - or we can poke along in the slow lane. It's our call.

We can race ahead or lag behind. We can zoom to the forefront or remain back in the pack. We can put the pedal to the metal and see just how far life can take us - or let off the gas entirely and come to a complete stop.

It's our choice.

"To me, to race is to go all out, every time."
Bonnie Blair

Many of us never fully comprehend our natural need for speed. Deep down, we hold an inherent need to succeed; a burning desire to get things moving and to make our lives the exciting action-packed adventure rides they deserve to be. Yet we sometimes do just the opposite. In fact, we sometimes we go so slow that we eventually come to a screeching halt

Look, we were not designed to poke, plod and trudge our way through life. We were born to shake things up, to stir the pot and to make something exciting happen right now. We need to go faster, we need to do more, but we oftentimes fail to heed this need. As a result, we give in to caution, choosing to slow things down and cool things off.

And while slowing down every once in a while may occasionally prove to be a prudent move, staying stuck in low gear is never advisable. And as far as grinding to a complete stop is concerned, give me a break!

"Life is like a ten-speed bike. Most of us have gears we never use."
Charles M. Schulz

When it comes down to fulfilling our dates with destiny, we need to go, we need to do, and we need to make things happen right now. That's right, we need to make our lives all they could be and should be - and we NEED to do it right this minute.

We need to rev our engines and press down on the accelerator. And press down hard. We need to push the tempo and then push a little bit harder. We need to pick up the pace and pick up some speed. And we need to live life at full speed.

Will we run off the road on occasion? Sure, but so what? We just need to get back on track and get going again. Hey, if we're going to make mistakes (which we're all going to do from time to time regardless of the speed we select), why not make them going at full speed ahead?

"Damn the torpedoes. Full speed ahead!"
Admiral David G. Farragut

Lets face it; the only way youre ever going to realize your most cherished dreams and aspirations is to go for them - and to go for them with everything you've got. You've got to be willing to lay it all on the line - and I do mean ALL of it, everything you're capable of giving - if you're ever going to get where you truly want to go.

Dawdling, delaying and dilly-dallying will never get the job done. Never! Instead of laying back or playing it safe, why not force the action? Rather than allowing others to set the pace, why not create your own tempo? And instead of hoping your dreams come true, why not grab the reins and make them come to life right this very minute?

You'll be pleasantly surprised to see how exhilarating, invigorating, downright intoxicating life can become when you finally turn yourself loose. And give in to your need for speed.

The Bottom Line: Go full speed and give life your very best shot.
