How To Maintain Motivation

A good friend of Ike’s (ex Motocross rider/racer) and now a big-time Motocross Race Promoter asked him the other day, how does he maintain motivation, focus, intensity, physique, and sharpness at his age?

Especially in a sport that is extremely demanding, physically, mentally, and financially.

Ike’s first response was:
If you are passionate about what you are doing, nothing seems to be too much or too hard to do!

Ike’s second response was:
You need to stop yourself from stopping yourself!
We are defined by how we view ourselves and our capabilities! Your internal dialogue determines your outward attitude!

We don’t live in a house, apartment, townhouse, or mansion! We live in our minds which is an unlimited area. The key factor in performing well in life and in every arena is the ability to control the quality of our “INTERNAL DIALOGUE”! Controlling our internal dialogue helps us to unleash our true potential, which steers the power to script our success “IN OUR OWN HANDS”.

If you think you can! – You can! If you think you can’t! – You can’t! Either way, you will be right! So, in reality:
The bike has no idea how old I am, or even cares how good a motocross rider I am! The track is not interested in my age or even what my capabilities are!

THE LIMITING FACTOR IS 6 INCHES – THE SPACE BETWEEN MY EARS!!!
