Senior athletes, both those I know personally and those I read about.

 

At one of our race events last season, there was a 90 year old cyclist who took 15 minutes off the course record for that race in his age bracket (90-94).

 

15 minutes.

 

90 years old.

 

And my time on that course, while being the new course record for my age bracket, was less than 2 minutes faster than his.

 

This is wildly motivating to me, as I enter my third season of racing. Wildly motivating.

Just knowing that the way I live my day-to-day life is what keeps me happy is sufficient motivation to keep living well.  Good friends, healthy food, exercise that I like to do, involvement in activities that I enjoy, close contact with my family, petting my assortment of animals, listening to classical music, working in the garden - these all motivate me and help me to live a better life.

What motivates me to live a better life is laughter. I like to laugh. I enjoy living in the moment. I do not try to stretch too far out into the future because it is a mystery. I like to think about what I can do today that will make me laugh and smile. In everything I do, I want to be able to laugh and enjoy. I started this year with a job I did not like. I was laid off in January and noticed that I was not stressed out and I was laughing more and enjoying my life. I am back in school, full time, to finish my degree and hopefully when I graduate I will be able to find a job that will give me a better feeling, one in which I may laugh and enjoy.

It’s the only life so you might as well make it a good life.Loving family,good friends and every day you wake up starting your day living a good life.Taking care of oneself though out life pays off as you grow older and makes life much easier for all concerned.Happy out look is much healthier than a sad look on life and so much more fun. This is your one chance to live happy health and feeling good each day.This is not a dress rehearsal for life it’s now or never. Enjoy each day.

By definition, the betterness/improvement from before. Any other motivation is questionable.
