DIVE INTO AN AMBITIOUS CHALLENGE THIS MONTH

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.

 We spend so much time thinking, worrying, questioning. Spend a few seconds lost in a moment. No time to think, just reaction and focus. All the worry and the want washed away by the rush. That's living (pharaphrased from Life Cycles).

DEAR LONDON,

These are the forgotten athletes.  When doing what you love you don't need spectators, funding, world records and medals.

USA = 43 medals
China = 42 medals
Britain = 22 medals
Freedom = ∞ medals

Here are 2 quotes about the downside of logic and reasoning:

"The secret of flight is you have to do it immediately, before your mind realizes it's defying the laws." - Michael Cunningham

"Aerodynamically, the bumble bee shouldn't be able to fly, but the bumble bee doesn't know that so it goes on flying anyway." -Mary Kay Ash

"The Morning Glory". If anyone knows who the photographer is please comment below.

How do people know how fast they should go when hitting a jump? If you speed check too much the consequences can be harsh and if you go too fast it can be even more dangerous. We don't mathematically assess how fast we should go, we rely on our instincts. They are worth our trust and if you question them you'll pay the price.
