Some days, when I go into work, I think “Man I really don’t want to be here. I wish I could be making money throwing my car around sideways at 80 miles an hour competing against the best in the business.”
Who doesn’t have that kid moment in them? Who doesn’t wish their day job was their dream job. But the real question isn’t what would you rather be doing. Nope, the real question is “What would you give up to be doing ‘that'”.
Would you give up your security blanket of a day job?
Would you be willing to let all monetary possession go and live on a futon in a one room shop
Would you throw everything else away and just focus on ‘that’ thing you want with nothing but the drive to be better and do better than you did before.
Hell no … that’s way too much work… I like my fish tank. I love my 65in TV and my PS3 (can’t wait to get the PS4 … Far Cry 4 baby). I need my quad copter for showing off to the honeys (which actually only attracts other nerds of the same sex… meh) having parties every Friday night is fun. Going to the movies is awesome. But I sure do wish I could find that type of dedication.
Well these are things you have to give up to be a one man band at a Formula D event. Don’t get me wrong Miro has help here and there, from friends, supporters and relatives. But let’s not sugar coat this. There is no race team. There is no umbrella girl. He doesn’t get his own mechanic. He brings his own tool box. He has his own built car. Everything was made by him. His sweat blood and tears goes into this. He has the bagged eyes to prove this.
After hanging with Miro for the weekend I can safely say that there is a thin line between dedication and obsessed. Fortunately for us fans of the Formula D series, there are extremely dedicated people out there like Miro that keep us obsessing over their dedicated lives.
