Lessons on the Run: Ep16-Testing Your Limits[youtube width=”600″ height=”355″]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pQ2PEmbw22M[/youtube]
RACING is testing your limits.
RACING is not enjoyable if you do it right.
RACING is testing the human spirit, it is about possibility, it is about learning something new about yourself.
In order to race well you must subject yourself to progressive and systematic training stimulus to build up your minds strength to understand that limits are self imposed, to stay focused, and to want, even need have pain and discomfort. It is in that state that your mind, heart, and character gets tempered and hardened like a black smith pounding metals together to make a steel sword. Just like that sword when it is completed, it will mean the difference between life and death for a knight so to your character will determine your success in life.
George Bernard Shaw wrote: “Life isn’t about finding yourself. Life is about creating yourself.”
I believe that if you truly want to live life to the fullest, if you want to be the best you can be, if you want to create and share with yourself and the world the ultimate version of you, you must be willing to go where no one else will go.
There in that dark distant corner where it is not so pleasant, where it hurts…
When you think you can’t any more, that is when you must! And when you do the caterpillar will emerge as the butterfly ready to share with the world.
Wow, after reading this I didn’t mean it to feel somber or bad but I am not going to change it. This is what my heart wanted to share with you today. Just know that getting uncomfortable is important if you want to race better and even more important if you want to grow as a person.
When in doubt, go further and see what’s on the other side of the mountain.
Make today amazing.
