Are you looking at the glamour appeal and boldness of your fave sports car, if you have one?
Or are you viewing it as how other people will see you?
Is what you are looking for a response from people and the attention that you crave? Or are you excited by the aesthetic beauty or the exhilarating acceleration of your rocket-fuelled desire?
There is nothing wrong with wanting something purely for the status and adulation it may bring you; so that people will peel you grapes and fan you with ostrich feathers just so they can have a ride in your sports car! Do you want to ride around like Cleopatra in an open-topped carriage so that everybody can adore you?
To win gold, you really have to want it at the deepest level. Those that achieve these peaks of greatness have a burning passion that drives them. So make sure that your goals are what YOU really want, even if it’s status. And this is essential in order for your ideas to have the momentum, the spark, the positive charge to move you from where you are to where you want to be.
Sometimes you need to peel off the layers, strip down the engine and do some rebuilding in order to make a keen, lean, mean machine which can go the distance. Look at the motivation behind your goals and see what is propelling you forward, what is it that you really want.
