Motivation is a funny thing. SOmetimes you have it, sometimes you don’t. The really fraustrating thing is tht sometimes you don’t have it for something you really want to do!
Earlier this year I decided that I would finally get my full motorbike license. I had wanted to do it many years ago, but never had the free cash available. Now in my mid 30’s I am finding it a little easier to find some spare so went for it, and absolutely loved it (Anyone considering learning to ride a motorbike, do it!!)
I managed to obtain a fantastic deal from my ex-wife on her old bike as she has recently upgraded to a very swish CBR600RR, and I was swiftly the proud owner of a 1997 GSX600F. It’s a sports tourer, and fairly heavey, but a great first big bike and still has enough performance to be downright scary at times.
The point of the post is that I love the bike, and I love biking. It’s a fantastic hobby.
I am finding it really hard to get myself out of the house and onto the bike. I will talk more some other time about how I talk myself round to doing things that I really want to do, but my brain wont let me (strange concept, but some fellow sufferers may understand what I mean). But I am finding that this is what I need to do more and more, whenever I want/need to leave the house pretty much.
It’s not Agoraphobia (need to check the spelling there!) as I love being outdorors in the fresh air. I think it’s more closely linked with people. People in general that is, not specific people. I haven’t quite managed to tie it down yet, and perhaps it isn’t so much people, as being ‘exposed’ in public and nervous about how I appear or come accross to poeple. I need to think about it more and try and work it out I think.
If anyone can relate to this ramble, let me know, and let me know if you have worked out what is stopping you? The first step to getting over a limitation is to understand what that limitation is.
