Isn't this the perfect metaphor to life? If you keep looking at all the obstacles in your way there is no way you can also keep your eyes on the prize/goal. Don't look at the obstacles keeping you from doing what you want to complete, instead look down the road. Look at the person you are becoming.
There are many obstacles, or reasons, why I shouldn't race bikes. Such as, I look silly in a full team kit, it's hard, I won't win, I don't know anyone, I might get hurt, it takes away from family time, I'm tired, and on and on. But I'm choosing not to look at the obstacles, I'm choosing to look at the finished product. When I line up at the start line people most likely see an overweight guy in a tight form fitting kit that they are about to beat. What I need to focus more on is what I'm becoming, a strong, fit, power house with an iron will and killer instinct ..... I'm just going to say it... I'm beginning to see myself on the top step of a podium one day. That's what I'm choosing to see!
