What’s Your Driving Force?

So what really motivates you?  What really gets your motor running? (Pun intended) To be successful in auto racing or in life, you have to find something that you are really passionate about, something that really gets your blood pumping, something that you just love.  I am currently watching the new reality series “Driving Force” on A & E.  If you haven’t watched it, you should check it out.  First, I love John Force, who doesn’t?   Second, who can deny his success? And third, you see some examples of positive psychology in action (John is doing practice trees before he races!) and you also see some less than positive examples (he screams, swears, and doesn’t take the best care of himself).  The best thing that John Force reflects is his LOVE of drag racing, he eats it, sleeps it, breathes it…it is all about Drag Racing all of the time.  His main goal is to get his daughters to have the same passion that he has about drag racing.  So take some time and figure out what really fuels you…auto racing doesn’t have to be the ONLY thing in your life, but if you want to be successful it sure better be in your top five list.
