What drives me?
Have you ever tried something but having the thought of not liking it in the back of your head, something that you would never of thought of you doing? For me that was car modifications. I wasn’t into cars a year ago but that one day my brother brought home an s15 was the day that all changed. Modifying cars has taught me so much, such as persistence, commitment, and respect.
First thing car mods have taught me was persistence because not always is the part you worked on or switched out going to work the first time; it might not work properly or not even work at all. Sometimes it won’t get fixed until a whole week after you’ve put in the initial part. I have come across many situations in car modifying that I’ve wanted to just throw in the towel because of how frustrated and fed up I got. This is a good skill to have because not always will you land that job interview or get that shot perfectly on the first time. You keep going and going until you get it perfect and I think most can agree.
Secondly modifying cars has taught me commitment. You have to have commitment to modify cars because if you put in half of your effort you will end up not getting things done and having a none functional pile of metal in your garage, along with the feeling of not accomplishing something. You have to commit 100% to see the end product and it is well worth it. It’s like sticking to a work out regimen. If you keep at it you know you are going to like the end result and it will boost your confidence and the way you view your self as an individual. Paul j. Meyer once said “productivity is never an accident. It is always a result of a commitment to excellence, intelligent planning, and focused effort.”
Lastly modifying cars has taught me is respect. How many of you are willing to put out all your money, heart, and soul into something and then just throw it all away in the end? None of you I don’t think, when you work on something to strive to make it...
