If life was a vehicle, I'd like mine to be stick shift because if you simply step on the gas, you'll go nowhere. Instead if you remember...
To Enjoy the process
Take time to appreciate each stage (gear) of "life" to it's maximum
The steps it takes to be full speed (Success)
To Shift down and engage the clutch before you stop or you'll just kill it (Relax)
How long it took you to get good at driving stick (Constant improvement/Growth)
Your vehicle runs a little different than your neighbors ( Be You)
I feel that's taking advantage of your own life.
This is the only "Car" you're going to get, so you better take good care of it and appreciate the fact that you're driving something and not walking because life will pass you by!
