Growth is about getting a higher point of view

»

As many of you know, I like driving. I have liked cars since my early teens. I studied mechanical engineering and got my bachelor's since I wanted to know more about cars. However, I didn't get a chance to study how to drive fast. Driving fast and well became my wish. So, I personally started to attend some of the driving experience courses that were offered by European car manufacturers such as BMW and Audi.

Three years ago, I attended an Audi's ice driving course in Finland, and was stunned to realize ice driving's difficulties, but it was fun. That surely gave me a new point of view. Going sideways safely on ice was a whole new experience for me. Since then, I repeated going to not only ice driving courses, but also to racetrack driving courses. Each time I went, I learned new things, and lifted my point of view.

I started to think I was a good driver. However, my confidence of driving was destroyed last summer when I started to take personal training sessions from a race driver. The race driver showed me how poorly I had been driving; he taught me physical logics behind driving and showed acceleration/breaking data measured by a GDP device. The race driver and I drove quite differently, and I found my driving was much cruder than his smooth and fast driving.

After several sessions, I came to understand things I was doing wrongly. The more I learned, the more I saw space to improve. Upon gaining my improvement, it made me feel I'd gotten a better point of view. This is a fun process. Challenges lead me to get different points of view. Those new points are my rewards, so I can keep on challenging myself. The higher my point of view gets, the more I see. This applies to everything. Growth is about getting a higher point of view.
