Power Up Passages

Taking Control.

Brought to you by
The Power Performance Program ©




November 25, 2008.

"We can let circumstances rule us, or we can take charge and rule our lives from within."
Earl Nightingale

Winners want control of where they are going and how they are going to get there. Better stated, they DEMAND control. They refuse to allow others any opportunity to steal their thunder or derail their dreams. These individuals move forward by consistently making the needed changes that make their lives more exciting and more rewarding.

These movers and shakers have learned that backing down or backing up never gets them anywhere they want to go. So they focus their full attention on all of the good things life has to offer, opting to ignore the negative influences that could possibly sidetrack them or knock them off course. They keep moving right straight to the top because they stay positive, stay motivated and stay in control of their lives.

And so should we.

"If you don't control what you think, you can't control what you do."
Napolean Hill

We need to take charge of our lives. Not kind of take charge, not sort of take charge, but TAKE CHARGE! And take charge now. Instead of accepting whatever crumbs life tosses our direction, we need to establish some challenging goals, exciting goals, goals that really get us going.

And then we need to really get after our goals, go get them with everything we've got. Each time, every time. No excuses, no dilly-dallying, no giving in or giving up. Just an all-out, positive charged effort that refuses to lose.

"This one step - choosing a goal and sticking to it - changes everything."
Scott Reed

We have the power to change anything about our lives that we wish to change. ANYTHING. If we're not currently making the progress we desire, we can change what we're doing. If our present plan of action isn't taking us where we want to go, we can change direction. If we don't really believe deep down where it counts that we can get the job done, we can change what we're thinking.

When we passionately pursue our goals, we grow stronger, more confident and much more resilient with each passing day. We grow more positive, more optimistic and more energetic about our lives. We grow more enthusiastic, more passionate and more excited about where we're headed. And we get better. A whole lot better.

"We must take charge of our own destinies, design a life of substance and truly begin to live our dreams."
Les Brown

If you truly want to take charge of your life, you've got to be willing to push yourself and get better every single day. And you've got to set some big-time goals. Goals that challenge you, goals that require you to do a lot more than you're presently doing. Goals that make you s-t-r-e-t-c-h to reach them. Then you've got to get busy making them happen.

As soon as you reach the goals you have established (and you will as long as you're committed to making them happen), you need to set a new group of goals that force you to s-t-r-e-t-c-h even further.

By continually forcing yourself to stretch and stretch and stretch each and every day, you'll reach higher and go farther than you ever thought possible. Best of all, your life will get better than you ever imagined.

The Bottom Line: If you don't take charge of your life, someone else will.
