Power Up Passages

Burning Bridges.

July 20, 2008.

"I don't ever look back. I look forward."
Steffi Graf

Most of us dream of a living a better life, enjoying a lifestyle that's much more fulfilling and rewarding. These sensory rich and breath-taking beautiful dreams play over and over again in our minds; so vivid, so vibrant, so unbelievably real that it feels like we can reach out and touch them - and make them come true.

Yet dreaming is about all we ever get around to doing. Even though we desperately want to start living life in the manner we long to live it, we just keep on doing the same old stuff day after day. We never seem to generate the courage to chase our dreams, to go for the things we want out of life.

We never get around to burning our bridges behind us.

"Be courageous! Have faith! Go forward."
Thomas A. Edison

The only sure way to get what we desire in life is to GO GET IT! And that means going after it with everything we've got; with nothing held back. And that's precisely where most of us miss the boat. We never really go after anything with all of the resolve and determination we can muster.

Oh sure, we'll give it a try on occasion. And maybe every once in a while we may give it a go. But more often than not, we never fully commit our hearts and souls to making our dreams come true.

And our dreams remain just that - only dreams.

"I'm neither giving up nor giving in."
Charlton Heston

How about you? When it comes to making things happen, do you go for it with everything you've got - or do you leave the back door open? You kdo now what I'm talking about here, don't you? That little crack in the doorway that acts as your safety net just in case things don't work out. Unfortunately, even the smallest of cracks can prevent you from forging ahead. Knowing you can always slip out that open door keeps you from giving life your very best shot.

You need to close the door; slam it shut. Then lock it. Now, with the door closed once and for all, the only way left to go is forward - in the direction of your dreams. No slipping out the back door when things get hot, no heading for cover when the going gets rough.

"It is for us to pray not for tasks equal to our powers, but for powers equal to our tasks, to go forward with a great desire forever beating at the door of our hearts as we travel toward our distant goal."
Helen Keller

If you really want your dreams to come true, you've got to be true to your dreams. And that means developing an indefatigable 'I will never go back, I will never retreat' attitude that simply cannot be stymied or stopped. By bringing a 'burn my bridges behind me' approach to the table, refusing to retreat or give up in life's toughest moments, you become stronger than any adversity you face.

Instead of going backwards, you continue to move forward. Instead of giving up, you give whatever it takes. By burning your bridges, locking the doors and resolutely standing your ground, you empower yourself to overcome any adversity you encounter. Best of all, amazing things start to happen when you refuse to give in or give up on the things you truly desire.

Your dreams start coming true.

The Bottom Line: Don't live your life in reverse. Make sure you're always moving towards your dreams.
