I Will Step Up

I attended a 50 hours in a total immersion program with Tony Robbins in Chicago awhile back.  It was called Unleash The Power Within. The first night I walked 15 feet barefoot in a fire, it was powerful.  I had so many breakthroughs and takeaways from it, but instead of writing a huge article, I wrote myself a poem, or maybe a rally cry is a better way of putting it. This was meant for just me, but after reading it, I thought there might be some nuggets that you can take and use in your life.

Here is MY rally cry… I challenge you to make your ownBlog-Challenge

I will not settle for being average

Average can be for everyone else who isn’t looking for excellent

But I don’t even want to be excellent, I want to be OUTSTANDING

I can change any story in my head that hasn’t been serving me

I can change the outcome by changing my attitude

I can change my attitude by changing my state

And I can change my state INSTANTLY by CHOOSING to

My past will only fuel my future

My body is the only one I will have, I will love and care for it

I will look for ways to add value to any situation

I will love deeper

I will look at my potential and capabilities rather then my limitations and shortcomings

I will treasure each moment as a gift from God

I will be grateful in every situation

I will take full responsibility for my results

I will play full out in life, dancing more, singing more, laughing more, and loving more

I will be a leader and not a follower

An action taker not a procrastinator

A solutionator not an excusenator

A problem solver not a complainer

I am going to acknowledge fear and do it anyways

I am going to strengthen the habits that serve me and starve the habits that destroy

I am courageous, meaning I do it anyway even though I am scared

I am committed to learning and growing each day

I will use words that empower instead of tear down

I know the outcome I want

I know the reasons why I want that outcome

I will take massive action towards that outcome

I will observe if the action is working

And I will change the approach if needed

The past doesn’t equal the future unless you live there

I will get what I want because I have a big enough reason WHY

I will do what I say and say what I do

I will keep good company because my standards are in direct proportions to the expectations of my peer group

I will look at everyone around me as my teammates

I will treat people nice who don’t treat me nice

I will not put limitations on what I am capable of

I will focus on deep breathing

I will model the success of those I look to be like, since success leaves clues

I have control over how my body feels

Exercise and eating healthy is part of who I am, not just something I do

Now I am the Voice

I will lead, not follow

I will believe not doubt

I will create not destroy

I am a Force for Good

I am a Leader

I will defy the odds and set new standards

I will step up

I will step up

I will step up
