FINISHING WITH THE BEGINNING IN MIND

FINISHING WITH THE BEGINNING IN MIND

THE GREAT STEVEN COVEY IMPLORED US TO BEGIN WITH THE END IN MIND.  It's terrific advice.  Visualize the end we want to accomplish and move forward accordingly.  But, when shyte gits real, like the middle of a big race...

... the end can seem too far away.

For me, when that happens, the only way forward is to remember how things began.

Full of hope and promise,
Healthy and happy,
Ready to roar.

This seemed like a good idea not too long ago.  I know I started off right.  I know I want to finish right.  Let's get it on.

Those ideas and thoughts can center me when doubt and fear and pain creeps in.

But, there's one more thing I'm having a hard time putting into words.  It's that moment when it seems unbearable and I ask myself...

... If I'm going to finish as planned, what is the next thing I need to do I need right now?  What do I need to change?  How can I be better?   What is the outcome I really want?

Maybe I'm not talking about racing specifically? 

Maybe it's anything difficult we've committed to see through?

Whatever it is, I know there is a moment when quitting seems like the better option and every single time I've pushed through and made the changes I needed to make there has been a beautiful prize on the other side of that I never would have received if I'd relented for the briefest of period of time.

ALWAYS finish the race is part of our PEDALposse mantra...

... and when you finish, change in style.
