Granny Gear

Get it in gear

The granny gear is the low gear semi-trucks begin in.  When behind them, you can easily get frustrated by the slowness of a force that will soon rush fast.  You already know, when the truck gets in higher gears, it can be intimidating if you look in the rearview mirror and see it coming.  You then have a choice to make, match its intensity, or get out of the way.  Or, you can stay still and think of how just a few moments ago it was barely moving.  Again, you have a choice to make.

Unobstructed Grand View

Look at your life.  Then look closely at it again.  Perhaps study your life.  Now, have the courage to look at those who look at you?  You may not want to or realize it, but you inspire more than you think.  The question is, do they see you in your granny gear, or do they see you in full-motion mode?  The fact that you were born to push others to succeed should be reason to get out of your granny gear.  Whether they say it or not, they need you to give them a view of what excelling is.

You in the rearview

You should be so adamant about what you do that you confuse those who are cruising or stalling.  They should look in the rearview of their journeys and see you coming fast to overtake their position.  Since there are always new roads to charter in life, you should always be viewed through someone’s rearview.  This is what glory to glory looks like.  It is being attentive to knowing where you are is good, but there is so much more ahead.  This means just as others should see you in their rearview mirror, those ahead of you should see much the same.
