“Around the Corner”

October 15, 2012

Sing along, “Around the corner, something’s coming, something good….. I don’t what it is but it is gonna be great.” West Side Story

A cyclist is taught several techniques for going around sharp curves and hairpin turns to maximize speed and safety. One of these techniques is where you look. If you look down, which is the natural tendency, your balance is compromised and therefore you may fall. The cyclist is taught to look about fifteen feet ahead. The body will follow what the eyes see and balance itself.

There is a lesson from this technique for all of us in our everyday lives . If you are always looking down, you will only see where you are and this could cause you to stay where you are. If you always look at least a little bit ahead, you can stay balanced and continue to move forward towards realizing your dreams and goals. If you are not looking forward now, you will be looking back later.

“A lesson from a bicycle: one can only maintain balance by moving forward.” – Albert Einstein

“Our thoughts create our reality — where we put our focus is the direction we tend to go.” – Peter McWilliams

“A bend in the road is not the end of the road. . . . unless you fail to make the turn.” — Unknown
