Today’s mental workout urges you to head for the checkered flag in your racetrack of life. There’s no rush though, you have all the time in the world. Your racetrack of life extends as far as you are willing to go. To ensure a smooth ride in your racetrack of life, make sure you choose the best terrain that fits your personality, skills and talent. Life is so much sweeter when you follow your desired path. Go at your own pace in your racetrack of life, just because everybody else is always in a rush speeding past you doesn’t mean you have to follow suit. Go at the speed that you are comfortable with. Sometimes show urgency when the situation calls for it, other times have patience. The most important thing is to always make progress in the right direction. Know the finish line for each of your life’s goals and even better, find out how to best get there.

The racetrack of life offers different lanes to help you stay on course. You will need stamina and determination to make it all the way to the finish line of your dreams. No matter how big your life’s goals are, as long as you stay on track, there’s always hope. Know when to make an aggressive pass and take risk, as they say nothing ventured nothing gained. Risk excites the blood. It makes you come alive, enjoy the thrill of the ride of life. If you crash into a corner, no worries, get back behind the wheel and try again. Adjust on-the-fly and learn from the experience. It makes no sense to scream and panic when things don’t work out. Learning to focus your energy in the right place is far more beneficial. In the face of uncertainty, give yourself the best chance, keep your hands on the wheel and your eyes on the road. Staying calm and in control allows for better judgment and decision-making.

Remember in your race track of life, it’s not where or how you start, it’s how you finish. Don’t dwell too much on what you don't have in your own particular circumstances in life, there’s always somebody who has it worse and would gladly change places with you. Concentrate on matters within the dashboard of your control. Put in the required efforts, apply yourself and commit to the tasks at hand. Develop good habits, do even the smallest and simplest of tasks well, the work ethic will transfer to even bigger things. Life requires consistency of certain mechanics and fundamentals. Triumph comes to those who stay the course, steady as she goes! In life’s uncertain curves, navigate slowly and wisely, on the open straights, put the pedal to the metal and drive with confidence. If you ever overdo it, don’t spin your wheels, pull in for a pit stop to recharge your batteries and re-energize yourself, everybody suffers wear and tear on life’s journey. Keep going till you reach the finish line of your dreams, as always, make it a thrilling mental workout.
