What is behind you is of no importance.
There is something remarkable of the sound and feel of a powerful engine as you shift into top gear, push the needle faster faster to the red line and with a glance of the vanishing landscape in the rear view mirror you realise what is behind you is of no importance.
I learned that early in life, experienced more than a few ‘vanishing landscapes’ from behind the wheel but beyond seeing how quick you could bury the needle in a ’68 Charger, it was about more, a lot more. It was about not worrying about what was behind you because what is behind will always stay behind you.
It was about leading, not accepting of a pack that never tasted risk, was
too afraid to risk failure and invariably always played it safe.
With that lesson, along with never be accepting of average, I learned that the direction you are going is the direction you are looking. See success, understand the dusty road ahead to achieve your goal, acquire the knowledge and resources to do so and when the opportunity presents itself drive the pedal into the floorboards.
Life, without a rear view mirror.
