The Throttle in Your Hand

Recommended Posts

I was feeling a little creative so I wrote the follow peace on the winning moto combo. I thought it would be interesting if you would write some simular stuff or inspirational or motivational stuff.

The Throttle is in Your Hand

There is defiantly a balance in being a great motocross competitor. It takes a quality of great stillness, calmness and clarity on the inside while being at battle on the outside. Calmness on the inside (your inner feeling) while in the race (kayos on the outside). There are also great expectations and pressures on the outside while there must be peace, focus and confidence on the inside, that along with a good dose of talent and desire are the bottom lines. Although much of these can be God given gifts while also being blessed with the right situations, most of the time the potential is there but the rest is learned and earned. What many riders are capable of doing is extraordinary, what they are willing to do is a different story. You don’t just win the race on raceday; you win or lose it the other six days of the week, week in and week out, not just by what you do but also by what you think. Thought is just as real as material things. As a matter of fact thought is more real than material because before something manifest (becomes real in the material world) it is first a thought. The proper preparation, dedication, determination, persistence, desire, commitment, scarifies, will to do whatever it takes and the will to win give you the potential to win but even with all this in place there are still no guarantees. However, if these things are not in place there is no chance to attaining access to the top level of the sport.

Many riders have great potential but its how they use, hone and polish that potential over a long time span that makes the different between mediocresee and greatness. Of course, the throttle is in their hand on the track but also in everyday life as well. Just like on the track you have to know when to back off and use throttle control; like you wouldn’t keep it wide open in the air or on super slippery ground, you also wouldn’t always keep it wide open in your day to day life. By the same token when hitting a big triple you better be into the throttle; likewise there are times in day to day life when you better be on it as well, balance on the track, balance in life. And you know what else, even through all this good, bad and the ugly you have to LOVE IT, a rare character in deed, a one in a million.
