Run For The Roses
The Race of a Lifetime
You spend all your time preparing to become a Champion. I tell you the truth, and nothing can prepare you for the WIN!
In a previous article (The Backstretch)I wrote the following:
“We were told by the management some time ago that this will change our lives forever. We didn’t realize just what they meant at the time. When we signed up, stayed the course, and committed ourselves, we entered the Race of a Lifetime.”
The WIN is an extension of the efforts it takes to get to the prize. If you don’t step back and observe, you may miss the excitement of The Final Drive. You will be recognized for the WIN, but no one will acknowledge the long agonizing hours, days, months, and years you put in to become an Instant Success!
The Winner’s Circle
The prize is when you make it to the Winner’s Circle and claim the rewards for all the time you put in. The time in for something as spectacular as the Kentucky Derby comes with years in the planning. The horses running in this race are 3-year olds. Therefore, one can see at least three years of planning are verified. But, what about the years of planning by the horse race breeders to find the right combinations of bloodlines? There is the buying and raising the right mares and studs. The horse has an 11 month gestation period. Let’s add that year to the planning and throw in one more for the pre-planning efforts. We are now up to 5 years of planning to win the race!
It has now become time for Compumatrix to enter the Winner’s Circle!
We have run the race very effectively at that! Most people look at success and say, “They were lucky.” I look at our success and say, “I was lucky to be in the right place at the right time!”
Luck has everything to do with it! Do you want to be lucky? Put in the work, tie yourself to the right team of people, and don’t let go!
Luck is one of those things that is measured by the eye of the beholder. The outsider sees the successful venture as “they were an instant success!” The people on the inside realize that “instant success” took years in preparation, planning, executing, and a genuine good measure of support to add a few items to the recipe.
Run For The Roses
The song by the same name is an inspiration Run For The Roses ~ Dan Fogelberg. You should look this up on Youtube. Listen to the words. Change from Race Horses to our online business. You can fully understand the dedication that brought us here.
There was a quote I remember from the NARHA (North American Riding for the Handicapped Association) handbook. I don’t know who’s quote it was: “the outside of the horse is good for the inside of a man.”
I would like to see our time in the Winner’s Circle become a benefit for others. The leaders, the management, and the members of Compumatrix reach our hearts out to those of you that are willing to work for it so you can become Lucky!
