Power Up Passages

Have It Your Way.

"Always be yourself."
Jimmy Stewart

There's little doubt that many folks utilize a 'follow-the-herd' mentality. These people tend to go wherever the crowd goes and do whatever the crowd does. If the herd goes here, they're quick to follow. If the herd goes there, away they go with them. These follow the lead types constantly play it safe, rarely if ever venturing away from the pack.

Rather than make a name for themselves, they invariably allow others to set the pace. Instead of seizing control of where they're going and what they're doing, they place their fates in the hands of others. Instead of embracing their unique individuality, doing those things they were born to do, they habitually take the path everyone else takes.

And they usually get whatever the crowd gets. And sometimes those results aren't all that great.

"Be yourself. The world worships the original."
Ingrid Bergman

How about you? Are you marching to the beat of your own drum, consistently setting your own tempo daily? Are you making the most of your God-given talents, doing those things you were born to do? Or are you hanging out with the crowd, hoping and praying things will turn out for the best?

If your life isn't all you want it to be, maybe you need a change of place. Maybe you need to break away from the pack and start dancing to your own beat. Maybe you need to listen to your heart and start singing the song inside you that needs to be sung.

Maybe, just maybe, you need to go against the grain.

"Discoveries are often made by not following instructions, by going off the main road, by trying the untried."
Frank Tyger

Going your own way can be a bit spooky. After all, you don't have the crowd there to back you up. But so what? Why not look on the bright side? When you finally muster the courage to go it alone, you don't have the crowd there to hold you back either.

Believe you me, there is nothing more satisfying than the freedom and fulfillment you feel when you let go and start doing your own thing; whatever that 'thing' happens to be. There's only one sure path to happiness in life and that's the path you boldly blaze yourself.

By yourself, for yourself.

Instead of blindly following the crowd everywhere they go, why not set yourself free and start living the life you've always dreamed of living?

"Freedom lies in being bold."
Robert Frost

Instead of hanging out with the crowd, hoping things will turn out for the best, why not bust out of the herd and see what you can go on your own? Rather than waste even one more minute lost in the crowd, why not start doing whatever it is that makes you happy?

If there is something you want to try, then for goodness sakes try it. If there's something you want to do, you need to get busy doing it. If there's something you truly want to accomplish, it's up to you to make it happen. You and you alone need to be running your show.

By putting the crowd in your rear view mirror once and for all, you can finally take charge of your life. And how great would that feel? With nothing blocking your path, nothing standing in your way, nothing but wide open space in front of you, you'll discover something pretty amazing.

There's nothing you cannot do.

The Bottom Line: Just be yourself - and you'll be OK.
