Ladies and Gentlemen, Start Your Engines

"Desire is the key to motivation, but it's determination and commitment to an unrelenting pursuit of your goal - a commitment to excellence - that will enable you to attain the success you seek."
- Inspirational quote by Mario Andretti -

We'd like to welcome you to this month's Motivational and Inspirational Corner Newsletter. In today's Motivational and Inspirational Corner Newsletter, we're going to have a little fun as we talk about motivation and you. Few can argue that the hardest part of completing any project is the "getting started" part. You know how the story goes, you know you need to get started but find one reason after another to put off the project indefinitely. How many would-be winners live their lives in this put it off until tomorrow fashion? Way too many, that's for sure. This could have, should have, wished they would have crowd never get their engines fully revving and not surprisingly, never reach their full potential either.

Life is somewhat akin to a car race. Regardless of whether you're talking about life or a day at the racetrack, nothing really happens until the participants start their engines. Think about it for a second. If you or the race car driver don't start your own respective engines, neither of you are going to win any prizes, are you?

Can you for a moment imagine how the fans in the grandstands or watching at home on TV would feel if most of the drivers in the race put off starting their engines until tomorrow? It wouldn't be a pretty picture, would it? Why? Because the fans came to the track or tuned in to see the drivers compete. They want to see these drivers putting themselves to the test, competing with the other elite drivers.

Nobody came out or tuned in watch a bunch of parked cars - they could have gone to a local shopping center if that's what they were looking for. No, the purpose of the race is to take home that first place prize. These drivers not only need to start their engines, they've got to put the pedal to the metal and push themselves and their cars to the absolute limit and beyond to have a chance against the rest of the pack.

"Circumstances may cause interruptions and delays, but never lose sight of your goal. Prepare yourself in every way you can by increasing your knowlwedge and adding to your experience, so that you can make the most of opportunity when it occurs."
- Inspirational quote by Mario Andretti -

How about you? Does someone have to push and prod you to get you to even start your own engine? Then once your engine is started, do you plod along in low gear or do you forcefully put the hammer down? Are you content to poke along in the slow lane with the rest of the crowd or do you instead push beyond your boundaries and test yourself against the best of the very best every day?

"If things seem under control, you are just not going fast enough."
- Inspirational quote by Mario Andretti -

Oh sure, the slow lane is fairly safe and secure - or is it? While you may not make as many mistakes putting along in slow poke lane, you're never going to make history either. We were put on earth to make a difference and we're sure as heck never going to do so if we don't push beyond our present boundaries. To get where we have always dreamed of going, we've simply got to accelerate to full throttle daily. If we veer off course or crash on occasion, we just need to get up, get back on the track and get going again.

"Circumstance may cause interruptions and delays, but never lose sight of your goal. Prepare yourself in every way you can by increasing your knowledge and adding to your experience, so that you can make the most of opportunity when it occurs."
- Inspirational quote by Mario Andretti -

You need to focus on where you're going and how you're going to get there. The best rarely if ever use their rear view mirror in life, because they know that whatever that's behind them doesn't really matter. It's only what's in front of them that counts. You've got to not only push yourself, but once you get it rolling, you still need to keep up the momentum every single day.

"You get out in front - you stay out in front."
- Inspirational quote by A. J. Foyt -

Once you get your life rolling at full throttle, you'll never, ever want to get back in that slow poke land again. You'll pleasantly discover that winning is quite contagious. After you've landed the first place prize just one time, you'll want to do it again and again.

"No one wants to quit when he's losing and no one wants to quit when he's winning."
- Inspirational quote by Richard Petty -

We encourage you to start your engine each and every morning, rev it up to full throttle and then peel out and make something happen all day long. Kyle Petty once said, "Success is being happy with yourself." No one could have said it any better.
