Power Up Passages

Easier Done Than Said.
November 7, 2002.

How many times have you heard the familiar expression, "It is easier said than done?” Probably more times than you can count. How many times have you used that saying yourself? Probably a lot more times than you care to remember.

When we say that it is easier to say something rather than do something, aren't we really just making an excuse for not doing what needs to be done? That is exactly what we are doing -- and that is not a healthy habit for us to develop.

Would-be winners fail to win because they constantly look for reasons and excuses why things "can't" be done, while the winners look for ways to make things happen. Would-be winners con themselves into thinking that things are a lot harder than they appear. In their mind, it is a lot easier to make excuses than put forth the required effort. After all, if they can make themselves believe that a task is simply too difficult, they can convince themselves it is perfectly OK to make excuses and find reasons it "CAN'T" be done.

Power performers believe that anything worth doing is worth doing now. Without question, winners fervently believe that anything worthwhile is easier done than said.

Rather than waste their valuable time tossing out excuses or conjuring up reasons why something can’t be done, the winners elect to just go out and do whatever needs to be done, whenever it is needed. These prime time performers never sit around and make up excuses, they get off their duffs and make history instead. They would much rather end each day with a list of things accomplished than hold a worthless list of excuses made.

Winners generally waste very little time talking about what they are going to do, they just go out and do it. They are so busy finding ways to turn their dreams into reality that they have no time for making up silly excuses.

It is time for you and me to write our own success stories. Like any good story, let's make certain our story from this point forward starts with a great beginning and has a happy ending. Let's develop an act now and talk later approach to our lives. Then before we can say it can't be done, we will have already done it.



Opportunity is missed by most people because it comes dressed in overalls and looks like work.
Thomas Alva Edison
