Inner Demon

Many people may think that this piece is about something evil.  It could be viewed that way, or it could mean this.

There were times in my life when I had no drive, no focus, no determination to do great things.  I remember riding my mountain bike with some good friends.  They were always stronger than me going up-hill (but never down-hill).  It would get uncomfortable to keep going.  I would just say to myself it’s okay to just stop and take a break, you’re not as strong as them, you’ll never be able to keep up.  So, I would stop and take that break.  As I stood there trying to get my breath, other riders would pass me by.  Over many years of being passed up, this inner desire “demon” inside of me began to grow from my disgust of quitting when things get tough.  I have always had this desire inside of me to be great in every aspect of my life, but never pushed through the difficult times.  Over the years, the desire within began to grow.  I now have a vision of where I want to be in 5, 10, 15 years from now.  This “Inner Demon” is burning larger than ever now.  I will never quit on anything I set my mind on (my family, friends or my dreams).  I won’t quit when things get tough.  I will not be beaten.  I will be the best.  I will work harder than anyone else to achieve my goals.
