Power Up Passages

"If now is not the time to act, when will it be?" Hillel

There are words I try to avoid like the plague; words like can't, don't and won't. These words bring very little value to the table. They serve no positive purpose. These words are disempowering, deflating, and downright debilitating. And can stop you dead in your tracks.

When you say,"I can't," you're right. And wrong at the same time. Just because you say you can't doesn't mean you are incapable of making it happen, it just means you think you can't. And when you think you can't, you're sunk.

The same premise holds true when you say, "I don't think I can do it" or "I won't do it." Don't and won't don't cut it and won't get you anywhere worth going. In fact, you can don't and won't your way into the poor house.

"When the sun is shining I can do anything; no mountain is too high, no trouble too difficult to overcome." Wilma Rudolph

There's another four letter word that should join the club. It's just as bad. It's just as rotten. And if you use it often enough, it's just as devastating.

And that word is 'when.'

When I get my ducks all in a row, then I will...
When I get this done, then I will...
When I accomplish this, then I will...
When I do this, then (and only then) I can do that.

Ever used these words before?

WHEN you have to do something, be something or have something in order to go somewhere else or do something else, trouble lurks.

What happens WHEN you can't take that first step?
WHEN you won't make that first move?
WHEN you don't get going in the first place?

Whenever that certain something doesn't happen, you stop moving. You stop growing. You stop living. And never get anywhere close to where you want to go, where you need to go, where you are destined to go.

"When words leave off, music begins." Heinrich Heine

It's high time you faced the music.

The time is never going to be just right.
Everything is never going to be just right.
You're never going to be just right.

Waiting for anything to be just right is just plain wrong.

Given a chance, when will slowly but surely steal your future, steal your thunder and steal your dreams. DO NOT LET THIS HAPPEN. You need to replace when with now. And get moving. Make something happen.

Do it now. Live it now. Become it now.

"Look at a day when you are supremely satisfied at the end. It's not a day when you lounge around doing nothing; it's when you've had everything to do, and you've done it." Margaret Thatcher

You need to get rid of when before it gets to you.

So what are you waiting for? You need to kick it in gear. You need to spring to life. You need to jump at the chance to make your life all it could be and should be. And do it right now.

No more waiting for the right time or the right place. No more waiting for this or that to happen. No more waiting for 'when' to come around. Whatever you want out of life, you need to make it happen. Whatever you want to see, go see it. Whatever you want to be, go become it. Whatever it is that you want to do, go do it. And go do it, live it and be it now.

Instead of holding back, I urge you to attack the day. You need to go all out. You need to throw caution to the wind. You need to go get the life you desire. The life you deserve. The life you have always dreamed of living.

And go get it right now.

Power Pointer: Right now is always the right time to make something fantastic happen in your life.
