Think of it as running your unique race. And running so that you win.
Remember that in a race everyone runs, but only one person gets the prize. You also must run in such a way that you will win. All athletes practice strict self-control. They do it to win a prize that will fade away, but we do it for an eternal prize. So I run straight to the goal with purpose in every step. I am not like a boxer who misses his punches. I discipline my body like an athlete, training it to do what it should. Otherwise, I fear that after preaching to others I myself might be disqualified.
Paul (1 Corinthians 9:24-27, New Living Translation)

Use the break-away power of increasing acceleration to move toward freedom. Have times of rest. But get faster as you engage life! Let’s access the compounding effect of early leads and early gains.
