One where chances of failure are high. Only when you’re face to face with defeat, an unfamiliar side of yourself takes over and overcomes. This psychological strength is unknown to the play-it-safers. Not because they don’t have it inside them, because it’s not attracted to small endeavors. It needs bold, courageous effort to flourish.
Why is it that what people can accomplish is often greater than what they believe they can. Our limitations are an illusion created by us and they will be broken by us.
When you're optimistic you no longer need a sense of control. You know that life will flow as it will, taking you where you need to be.
Scene from "Where the trail ends".
Life Cycles was one of the best bike movies I've ever seen (purchase: www.lifecyclesfilm.com). This is my interpretation of the voice over in the movie:
Life is a river; always moving forward, barreling straight through the impossible. Some of us are disconnected from the flow of the river. This disconnect kills joy, interaction and purpose. Life's greatest adventure, all it's beauty, sails by unnoticed. But the river is never that far off. There is always a way back into the rush of moving forward.
