The above video is of a Ferrari F430 Scuderia tearing down the front stretch of New Hampshire Motor Speedway this past weekend – with me behind the wheel.
I fully outline this experience (an amazing gift from my girlfriend) in the Cloud 9 Living blog here: https://www.cloud9living.com/blog/ferrari-driving-experience-gift, but I’d like to cover a different, aspect of it in this short blog post.
While I often speak and write about staying motivated and striving to reach goals, I, like many others – seem to lose a little steam at times. We all need to keep our goals and dreams firmly planted in front of us so we don’t lose sight of them, no matter how far off they may seem.
This keeps us moving towards them, but, is there an even better way to stay on track?
It has always been a dream and love of mine to both race cars, and drive a Ferrari. This past weekend, I got to do both simultaneously, on the road course at New Hampshire Motor Speedway.
I expected this to be an amazing experience, as it was – but in the couple of days past I also feel a renewed enthusiasm towards reaching these goals. The realization (again) that the things we want most out of life, DO exist, and ARE attainable.
Too often people look at exotic cars, yachts, massive houses, extravagant vacations, and simply accept them as outside of their reality. That is the life of the privileged. That’s not for me. I can’t do/have/be that.
Well, why not?
The life you desire that can only be achieved through financial success, CAN be achieved. In 2013 there are more opportunities to make money than any other time in human history, you’ve just got to find them and educate yourself on them.
To keep your motivation alive, define what you want out of life, and go experience it. Want an exotic car? Find a way to drive one. Want a watch that costs more than your house? Go to the jewelry store and try one on. Envision yourself having what you want every single day, and you won’t be able to settle for less.
Obviously material things don’t always equal happiness and I’m certainly not saying that they do – but they ARE often what keep us working towards a new business venture, a higher position, etc., and are important because of it.
However always remember – even the greatest material accomplishments lose their luster if we don’t have people we care about in our lives to share them with – never sacrifice relationships for the sake of financial success.
I, for one, will not stop until I get what I want – and I don’t know why you would either.
