Did you see the story last week in the news from the US about a 5 year old kid who stole the keys to the family car and wanted to drive to California (he lives in Utah) to buy a Lamborghini?
He was pulled over on the highway by a copper (thankfully) and told `him the story and said he had $3 to buy one.
He did it after his mum wouldn’t let him buy one.
Don’t believe me? Here’s the story.
This is kinda funny, then you realise that if it was your kid, you’d be absolutely horrified.
And if you were another driver on the road, you’d be fearing for everyones safety too if you saw a kid who could barely see over the steering wheel out on the road.
Like I said, kinda funny when you first read it, but on further review it’s a bit disturbing.
And I can’t work out how he was able to put it in gear, release the hand break and do the rest at that age.
The story doesn’t explain all that.
But it does explain that his parents weren’t home (great parenting right there) and his older siblings were supposed to be looking after them.
How old they were I don’t know.
But all of this goes to show that if you really want to do something, you’ll find a way to make it happen.
The way I see it with regards to a fitness perspective, is that you have to overcome some obstacles to get what you want – be that healthier, stronger, fitter or even leaner.
Whatever it is.
The kid had a plan – albeit a bit flawed, but at least he had something going on, and he executed it.
Once again, albeit unsuccessfully.
But he had a go.
Things don’t always go to plan.
We can at least take that part of the story as a lesson for us if you’re struggling right now.
Have a plan you want to work towards.
And work on the small steps to make it happen.
I’d love to know how long he was planning this scheme for,
surely it’s not something you just wake up one day and decide to do.
Anyways, if you need help with executing your plan of action,
so it can be a bit more successful than this kids plan,
just let me know and I’d be happy to help you get something on track.
