Power Up Passages

"One big reason I do what I do is there's no two days alike. It's not work for me. It's my life, my passion." Emeril Lagasse

Have you ever wondered why?

Why are you here? Why are you at this place, at this very moment? Why are you doing what you're doing right now?

Why do you have that song in your heart?
Why do you feel that fire in your soul?
Why do you have that dream that won't go away?

Are you singing the song?
Are you kindling that fire?
Are you bringing that dream to life?

"He who has a 'why' to live can bear almost any how." Friedrich Nietzsche

Why do you do what do every day? Is it because you want to? Is it because you love to? Or is it because you think you HAVE to?

When asked these questions, most people say they do what they do because they feel they have to do it. Even though they would prefer to be doing something else, almost anything else, they just keep doing what they're doing because they feel they have no choice.

They go to a job they don't like. They deal with people they'd prefer not to deal with. They do things they wished they didn't have to do all day long, all week long... all year long. And they hate it.

How about you? Are you doing what you love to do, what you want to do; what you were born to do? If not, why not?

"Why not is a slogan for an interesting life." Mason Cooley

You have a why inside you that drives you, a why that inspires you. A why that can take you anywhere you desire. This why is your reason for being, your reason for doing, your reason for living. It is in you.

It is your destiny.

Yet many times you put your dreams on hold. You let others determine your future. You permit situations and circumstances to dictate your actions. In fact, you allow too many people and too many things too much of a say in your life.

That's got to stop right now.

"Why, sometimes I've believed as many as six impossible things before breakfast." Lewis Carroll

If you don't like what you're doing, change it. And start doing something you want to do.
If you don't like where you're headed, change direction. And start going where you want to go.
If you don't like the manner in which your life is unfolding, change whatever you need to change to get back on track.
And change it right now.

You need to follow your dreams. You need to pursue your passions. You need to go after the good life with everything you've got.

Get out there and discover the things that bring joy to your life. The things that make you feel happy and content. The things you were born to do, be and see.

From this moment forward, you need to chase your WHY with everything you've got. And make it come alive.

Power Pointer: Find your 'why' and you'll find your way.
