"The one serious conviction that a man should have is that nothing should be taken too seriously." Samuel Butler

On a scale of one to ten, how serious are you? When it comes to getting things done, pursuing your goals and making your dreams come true, what do you rate? Are you a ten, where everything you say and do is serious business? Or a one, where the only thing you are serious about is taking a nap?

Are you the type who takes everything seriously - or the kind who doesn't seem to have a serious bone in your body? Or do you fall somewhere in between?

The level of 'seriousness' each person possesses will vary a great deal. And that makes sense, given that every single person is different. What's right for one individual may be wrong for another.

"You cannot deal with the most serious things in the world unless you understand the most amusing." Winston Churchill

The degree of seriousness you display daily must coincide with your personal traits. Trying to be too serious may not work, especially if your personality trends a tad more in the laid back category. And attempting to play it cool when you possess an aggresive Type A personality is a sure-fire recipe for disaster.

When it comes to being serious, there is a fine line for each individual. And you need to determine where your line is drawn.

You can be too serious, where life eats you alive with all sorts of pressure and demands. And you can be a little too lax, especially when situation dictates a more serious approach. So what's the right mix? The answer depends a little on the circumstances you face and a great deal more on you. Sometimes you need to dial it down a bit. On other occasions, you need to amp it up a notch or two.

You need to find the 'spot' that works for you.

"Mix a little foolishness with your serious plans; it's lovely to be silly at the right moment." Horace

Don't try to be something you're not. Just be you. When it's time to get down to business, roll up your sleeves and get to work. Don't spin your wheels or go through the motions, get serious and get something done. Then, when it's time to relax and unwind, back off the accelerator and take a breather.

Contrary to what many believe, you can be serious and still have a lot of fun. You can be serious and still mix in a ton of excitement. You can be serious and still savor the flavor of each and every day. Being serious is not about tying yourself in a knot. Nor is it about worrying yourself sick. It's about finding your niche while pursuing your dreams with precision, passion and power.

"Maturity means reacquiring the seriousness one had as a child at play." Friedrich W. Nietzsche

Find something you love; something that sets your heart on fire, something that makes you come alive. Then get busy doing it. Don't wade around in the kiddy pool. Get serious and jump in the deep end with both feet and swim like crazy.

Don't wait for something wonderful to happen, make it happen.
Don't wait for success to come knocking, set out to find it.
Don't look for a miracle, become one.

You need to enjoy life, embrace life; immerse yourself in the best life has to offer. Make life your playground again.

Get serious about achieving your dreams. Get serious about attaining your goals. Get serious about living life to the hilt. Explore new avenues. Discover new opportunities. Let all that is in you, out.

And start making some serious progress.

Power Pointer: When it is time to get serious, get serious about the serious things in life.
