Life lesson: If you want your dreams to come true, you’ll have to work really hard at chasing them, because as my pops told me… Your dreams won’t come chasin’ you.
This life lesson is one of my favorites. It is also one of the reasons I wanted to write Adventures in Raceland. I wanted to go out and create something, so I did. It was about 4 years ago and still simply a dream waiting to be put to into words. I had all my reasons and plenty of inspiration but it was ME who put pen to paper, or rather fingers to keyboard. I did it and no one else.
Of course I wouldn’t be where I am without the love and support of family and friends, but Adventures in Raceland wasn’t going to write itself.
You can go anywhere in life you desire to. Some of it is luck but about 99% is the work you put into it. Life is what you make of it so reach for the stars and set your goals higher than you can imagine. You might get there eventually but never stop improving yourself and you will prevail. Success is a great place to be but the feeling of accomplishment is even better.
