Get Out of First Gear



“Life is like a ten-speed bicycle.  Most of us have gears we never use.”
Charles M. Schulz

Seems in life it is essential, to gear our mind to full potential. Please lend an ear, this you may want to hear.

There is no boasting if we’re only coasting. Results may be adverse if we’re forever in reverse.  Let’s move forward by pedaling toward, a favorable direction. The rut in the road, an act of deflection or an undesirable reflection?

We get out of bed, shake our head and we’re in first gear. What a great start, we’re thinking smart! Again, let’s pedal toward a positive direction; are you with me? Have you switched to second gear? Oh, but you must! There is still time to adjust.

C’mon, there’s no time for crying, you must keep trying. Do you want to be a wannabe throughout your life? No, the answer is not a new life. You can’t just buy a new life like you would buy a new bike!

We must be resourceful and not remorseful; squelch our fear and cultivate cheer. Now, are you with me? I’m so proud of you that you heeded my cue.

Seems in life it is essential, to gear our mind for full potential. Please lend an ear, this you may want to hear.

Get out of first gear!
