Power Up Passages

You Talking To Me?

Brought to you by
The Power Performance Program ©




June 1, 2010.

"Follow your path, and let the people talk." Dante Alighieri

Life can be trying at times. And sometimes it can be downright difficult. It can test you. It can try your patience. It can push you right to the wall.

And, if you're not careful, it can break you apart.

There are few things more disheartening than giving your best and still coming up short. That empty, hollow, unfulfilled feeling of giving everything you've got - and then discovering your 'everything' isn't nearly good enough cuts to the bone.

Yet, try as you might, you're never going to have all the answers when things go wrong. You're not always going to know what to do or where to turn. Or what your next move should be. No matter what you do, you're going to encounter setbacks. No matter how hard you work, you're going to make mistakes. No matter how much you try to avoid it, you're going to have a tough go now and then.

And that's a lousy feeling.

"I was always looking outside myself for strength and confidence, but it comes from within. It is there all the time." Anna Freud

So you start searching for answers. You start looking for a way out, a way up, any way that works. And occasionally you look the wrong way.

When you're looking for direction, trying to figure out what you should do next, you generally don't have to look very far. Whether you want their two cents or not, there's plenty of people ready to give you advice; willing to show you the way.

And that's not always a good thing.

"Put your ear down close to your soul and listen hard." Anne Sexton

For every person who can point us in the right direction when we stray off course, there are a thousand more ready to offer up all sorts of strategies that won't work. And the reason they don't work is simple. These folks are looking at your problem through their eyes, basing their ideas on their own perspective, beliefs and values.

So they give you their opinions, their suggestions and their ideas about what you should be doing.

But you're not them. And even more importantly, THEY'RE NOT YOU. So what in the world are you doing listening to what they have to say?

"Your talent is your gift. Your ideas and inspiration come from the Spirit whispering in your ear. To ignore them is to ignore God." Lori Bryant Woolridge

There's only one way to find out what works best for you. And that's for you to be you.

God has blessed you with the ability to determine your destiny, to make your life all it should be and more. He has given you the strength to overcome problems. He has provided the resolve to power through adversity. He has bestowed within you the determination, the resolve, and the 'smart' to have and be and do anything you desire.

God believes in you. And that's all you need to know.

When it comes to living your life, you need to make a choice. Are you going to listen to others, allowing them a chance to dictate your fate? Or are you going to listen to your instincts instead? And start living life on your terms.

It's time to turn down the outside sound and tune into your inner self. By listening to your sixth sense, those gut feelings you feel from time to time, you will discover the direction and guidance you seek. Then and only then will you discover what you need to be doing. The steps you need to be taking. The moves you need to be making.

Then don't just stand there. Get busy doing what YOU to be doing. And make sure you do it with all of your heart.

The Bottom Line: Just be yourself. And you'll be fine.
