We all choose--some don't know it.
I had an enlightening conversation with a relatively new biker just a few days ago. He was a young guy so I expected to hear about his love for speed and tales of him on his Japanese “rocket”.
Instead, my prejudices were busted.
He told me there are basically two types of motorcyclists: Those who ride slowly and are all about the journey and those who crave speed and getting where they’re going ASAP.
He said, “I chose to be a biker who enjoys the ride. It’s the journey and that’s how I want to live.” Here’s a guy who took the time to consider who he is and what he wants…integrity.
We all know this lesson and we all need to be reminded. What’s great is that he actually consciously chose what kind of life he wanted.
2012 is coming. You can’t force it; It’ll unfold as it does. You can’t control it but you do get to choose how to be on the ride.
Drop your prejudices, assumptions, history, justification and excuses and live 2012 on your terms despite what the road throws at you.
