Power Up Passages

Bubble Wrap.

Brought to you by
The Power Performance Program ©




January 31, 2010.

"No matter who says what, you should accept it with a smile and do your own work." Mother Teresa

Ever wish you could shut off the outside world on occasion; that you could somehow insulate yourself from all of the pessimism and negativity you experience daily? That sure would be nice, wouldn't it? To turn off the incessant griping, tune out the ceaseless complaining, and turn away the nonstop 'I'm not going anywhere and I want to take you with me' rants you hear from time to time.

Let's face it; few things can sour your day quicker than being showered with negativity. Yet some people feel compelled to share it with you nonetheless. Their ever present pessimism casts a dark and depressing pall over everything and everyone they touch. These folks spell bad news with a capital BAD.

"A thick skin is a gift from God." Konrad Adenauer

Given half a chance, your critics will swathe you in unhappiness and despair and shroud your life in darkness. They'll let the air out of your balloon, rain on your parade and upset your apple cart. They'll tell you the sky is falling, that your best days are behind you.

Try as you might, you simply cannot avoid these folks. So you need to do the next best thing and wrap yourself inside a protective bubble; a bubble that shields you from their negativism, a bubble that protects you from pessimism and cynicism.

And make sure you wrap yourself good and tight.

"Care about people's approval and you will be their prisoner." Lao Tzu

By wrapping yourself in a blanket of positive thoughts, you create an impenetrable fortress of power and might; a private personal sanctuary of peace where you're untouched by the words and actions of others; where you are free to see life's endless possibilities.

By wrapping yourself in a layer of positive words, you forge a positive charged atmosphere that builds your confidence and self esteem. There, safely sheltered from the outside storm, your words paint a stunning masterpiece of excellence; a carefully crafted life filled with wealth, happiness and abundance. You start believing that you've got what it takes, that you can bring your dreams to life.

By wrapping yourself in a bundle of positive action, you move away from a world of pessimism and glum and towards the life you've imagined. By fully immersing yourself in the passionate pursuit of your dreams, you forcefully create a positive charged momentum that cannot be stopped.

"Don't let them tame you!" Isadora Duncan

You need to immerse yourself in all things positive. You need to think positive thoughts; thoughts that inspire you, that make you feel better about yourself and the world all around you. You need to speak positive words; words that define you, that brighten your day and lift your spirits. And you need to take positive action; strong, powerful movements that propel you in the direction of your dreams.

The next time someone mocks or belittles you, pay them no heed. I know it's not easy, but please ignore them. Let their meaningless words bounce off of your bubble wrap.

When others attack or disparage your character, please disregard their foolish blather. Let their empty words harmlessly ricochet off of your bubble wrap.

Whenever people wrongly accuse you or besmirch your integrity, don't give in to the temptation to lash back or give them a piece of your mind. There's no reason to stoop to their level. Their words will only hurt if you allow them to do so. So don't. Just throw up a good, thick layer of bubble wrap and get on down the road. Ignoring your critics will make you feel better. It'll make you feel happier. And it'll free you to chase the more important things in life.

Like your dreams.

The Bottom Line: Never allow anyone to steal the joy you hold within.
