Here is one for a few of you.
It may sound arrogant, condescending..know it all..
So be it.
What matters most..
The MOST IMPORTANT ASPECT...of your life..
Is preserving a quality of life.
Wont give up physical pursuits...beccause you are a Contender, because you are champion..number one..etc..etc..etc..ad nauseum...
You wont be anything but washed up and broken if you keep pushing when you should...STOP!
As you know, ive written about not giving up
Not giving in...
Thats a different aspect of a champions personality..and their no.1 stopper of being a champion.
You dont quit
Well..if your doing something detrimental to your Long Term Health..your,being unwise..
What use is it to win the battle, then lose the war?
Tell me..what do you get when you cant be no.1 anymore..
Ya get to see everybodys backside as they pass you by.
Many many here were 1%ers.
Top of the game....
Ask them, open and honest like, and many will twll you all they have is a broke back and memories.
I was lead dog at 25, head hunted and courted by many companys
A never say die work ethic
100 plus hours a week behind the wheel.
Thats working , not sitting, not off or down time.
70, was the minimum.
And i sopped it up with a bisquit!
Then i got hurt the first time..
Not so many calls
Then other times..
Harder work to do less and less
Accident in 99?
Same work ethic
Now 30 hours has me laid up and wishing for a morphine drip.
Because i thought being numero uno was more important.
You ask me what would i change?
I would go back before i foolishly broke my health.
I see people saying that leaving the life style behind is not an option
Cant do it
Failure, will be the only option if you continue hurting yourself.
I feel sad at people who lose it all
Because of a fallacy, a fantasy..a dream.
Your Health overall is NUMBER 1.
Your here because you got hurt
Ot were hurt through no fault of your own.
Preserving a quality of life is more important for the long run.
Think about this Spiney..
You think its bad now?
Add regret to all the other issues.
There are others here
Old and new timers.
I want to hear your storys.
Would you trade anything for a chance to do it over?
Ime not targeting anyone
If we cant be honest among ourselves, who can we be honest with?
Surely not ourselves if we live in denial...
