Power Up Passages

Get Up!
August 5, 2002

It has been said that your success is insured when you’re willing to get up at least one more time than you get knocked down. Hey, we all get knocked around. Like it or not, it’s just a part of everyday life. No one, not the most or least talented among us, are exempt from the trials and tribulations of day to day living. But it’s how we respond to these temporary setbacks that will in large measure determine how far we go and how high we fly in life.

When life deals you a crushing blow, you must condition yourself to quickly pick yourself up off the canvas – and get back into the game. Winners always do. They realize that it’s OK to get knocked down – and that it’s perfectly normal to feel saddened, hurt or disappointed about being knocked down. Let’s face it, nobody likes to lose or encounter difficulty. But the winners also recognize that the getting up part is ninety percent of overcoming any adversity placed in their paths.

Don’t worry about getting knocked down. Since it’s going to happen regardless of whether we like it or not, especially when we’re passionately and enthusiastically chasing your dreams, we should vow to keep getting up each and every time. Laying there, moping and feeling sorry for themselves, isn’t going to get them to the winner’s circle.

Never lose sight of the fact that you were placed here for a reason. There is a song in you that desperately needs to be sung. There are just too many good times, good things and great people out there to enjoy to ever allow a temporary setback to hold you down – or hold you back. When you vow to get up every time you get knocked down, you’re well on your way to living the life others only dream about.

The Power Up Passage is brought to you each weekday by The Motivational and Inspirational Corner.
