The Harder I Push, the More I Find Within Myself [quote]

The harder I push, the more I find within myself. I am always looking for the next step, a different world to go into, areas where I have not been before. It’s lonely driving a Grand Prix car, but very absorbing. I have experienced new sensations and I want more. That is my excitement, my motivation.

I had the opportunity to watch a great documentary about Ayrton Senna, one of the greatest Formula One drivers to walk the planet – have to thank my buddy Al Abut for bringing me out to that one. Really love this quote about a man living out on the edge. To become the greatest in the world at something, you really have to be possessed. You really have to be nuts.

I really like the fact that you are making active efforts to remove others and yourself from our mediocrity. I think many people are afraid of becoming mediocre but most don't feel particularly "uncomfortable" living with it. Reminds me of that 1987 movie "Amadeus" in which the the protagonist (a famous Austrian composer) was plagued by his own mediocrity as he tried to distinguish himself from his competitor Mozart.


Thanks for the post! Truly appreciate your work and creativity.
