Power Up Passages

What's It Going To Be?

Brought to you by
The Power Performance Program ©




June 11, 2011

"We create our fate every day." Henry Miller

You choose your path in life.

You can go through life afraid. You can be timid, intimidated and faint-hearted. Or you can be fearless. You can be courageous. You can be as daring as the situation dictates.

You can be nervous and frightened; even scared of your own shadow. Or you can be strong. You can be resilient. You can be as tough as you need to be.

You can be tentative, hesitant; unsure of yourself or your next move. Or you can be decisive. You can be determined. You can be steadfast and resolute.

You can be anything and everything you have ever dreamed you could be. Or you can be not much of anything at all.

You get to make the call. So what's it going to be?

"A person often meets his destiny on the road he took to avoid it." Jean de La Fontaine

Since you get to do the choosing, why not choose to bring out your best? Why not demonstrate determination, perseverance and resolve in the face of adversity? Why not show some real grit, fortitude and firepower when the going gets tough. Why not cast your troubles and problems aside and get busy creating your own fate?

Instead of backing down when things go wrong, you need to take charge. You need to take the reins. And make something positive happen.

Rather than allowing outside circumstances to decide your destiny, you need to look within and discover the purpose, willpower and drive to forge your own future.

Instead of giving up or giving out when things start to give way, you need to stand up and give it everything you've got.

And start making a difference.

"Lots of folks confuse bad management with destiny." Kin Hubbard

When you make a mistake, don't let it get to you. You need to get up, get better and get on down the road. Never allow small annoyances any chance to balloon into big time problems. Never give tiny setbacks a chance to become full blown defeats. Never give defeat a chance to have the last word.

You've made a ton of mistakes in the past. And chances are pretty good that you're going to make even more in the future. But so what? Mistakes can be corrected. Mistakes can be overcome. Mistakes can shatter the glass - or forge the steel.

Mistakes are no big deal unless you make them a big deal. So don't.

Just fix the mistakes you make. Then forget them. And keep moving forward.

"What you think can change your life.
What you do can change the world."
Greg Hickman

The next time trouble comes knocking on your door, don't run for the hills. Don't head for cover. Don't look for the easy way out.

Don't waver. Don't cower. Don't falter.
Don't back up. Don't back down. Don't back away.
Don't stop living. Don't stop pushing. Don't stop believing you have what it takes.

Stand up to your problems. Stand firm on your principles. Stand strong in your beliefs. And stand for something special.

You need to be bold. You need to be brave. You need to focus everything you've got on becoming the absolute best you can be.

And you will change the world.

Power Pointer: You can become anything you want in life - when you want it badly enough.
