When the season starts we all have ambitions. I have looked at many a race schedule, listened to many a driver and have seen some pretty ambitious ones. Having ambition is not a bad thing; it can move us from where we are to where we need to be. But, it can all get lost very quickly when it becomes selfish and blind. Greetings in the name of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.
We have all seen them, people who have to get to the top, regardless of who they push out of the way to get there. They use others as stepping stones as they climb the ladder of success. They bend and break the rules in their favor, rationalize it to themselves that everyone is doing it so it is alright; I am just getting my fair share.
We see it at the track also; those who take, take, take and refuse to come under the authority of others. They think the rules don’t apply to them and they can do whatever they want whenever they want; whether with the car or on the track. Bending the rules is one thing, but flat out breaking them for your own benefit is wrong. Justifying it by using your ambition to succeed makes it even worse. What is it worth if you have to lie, steal and cheat to get it?
