Trail of Influence

“So you have to get used to your circumstances, complain about them as little as possible, and grasp whatever advantage they have to offer: no condition is so bitter that a stable mind cannot find some consolation in it.” – Lucius Seneca

We all have a choice in a trail running race (and in life) on where to spend our finite mental resources:

  • on concerns/issues we can’t control
  • on concerns/issues we can directly be engaged in and help direct and influence

One choice is a sneaky, near vertical climb that can greatly reduce or halt any forward progress.

The other is a panoramic landscape of involvement, possibilities, and dare I say…fun!

Where would you like to be?

Let’s get some epic dirt time on theΒ Trail of Influence! That’s my vote. πŸ˜‰

How have your race experiences been affected by the musings between your ears?

Be active – Feel the buzz!
