The Art of Racing in the Rain

images (9)

This quote, by the author of The Art of Racing in the Rain, reminds me to prioritize my fears in a different way.

The book is packed full of insights about living past our fears, all wrapped into an insightful story about a failed racecar driver, his family challenges, and his loyal dog.

The title comes from the essential survival secret of those who “race in the rain” (or who live a challenging life). My paraphrase of a main point: Your car (life) goes where your eyes go. If the car is spinning out and the driver is focused on the wall, the car will hit the wall. Keeping our eyes on the road ahead will change our trajectory and, ultimately, save the race.


Read it for delight and insight.
