“In the game there’s ups and downs, so I stay on the grind.” – 50 Cent
I know what you’re thinking – a 50 Cent quote? Really? WELL YES.
This quote has a great message and it’s something that my fiancé is always reiterating to me. Whenever I have a bad day at work or something is going wrong, he always says to me, “Don’t worry so much about it, stay on the grind.”
In this world, I think people tend to get hung up on some of the temporary highs and lows of life. What I’ve learned is that you will always be happier and better off if you keep pushing forward to make yourself a better person. The highs and lows will come and go, but you need to control what you can control, and you do that by grinding every day to make yourself better. There is really no point in sweating the small stuff. As long as you work hard towards your goals, everything will work out. Sometimes I even find myself saying in my head “just stay on the grind” when something goes astray.
As an instructor, I hope that my classes are a place where riders can come and let go of their day, let go of the things going on in your life that are bothering you. Use the class as fuel to stay on your grind and forget any of the bullshit! (Can I swear?)
