Obviously it all satisfies me and brought me a lot of confidence and positive energy; but many good results can make also forget that the defeat is also part of the whole adventure possible scenario.
I have long theorized about it, I have written, I explain that in lectures, and now I have to apply. But when you're in a moment of failure, it's also hard to manage! I've been a couple of days in a low mental shape after the abandonment, but I'm getting out of the hole, and hopefully with lots of energy.
Without wanting to be excessively positive now, I have to admit that I see a very good side to this end, and now I want to focus on getting the most out of the drop in the Dakar 2011.
To do this, I will not waste a second to complain and discuss possible "excuses" to justify me, but will invest my energies to analyze all my mistakes for not managing well the critical moment in which I had very complicated circumstances. What separates success from failure, or people who does ambitious things from the rest, is basically to manage well the 'Key' moments. I've seen in all my business and sport adventures, and in general I felt proud of how I managed this moments. But here I failed. And it's not so serious to fail, but it would be a problem not to learn of the fault, and just find external reasons from oneself (The car, GPS, Satellite, etc ...), to have a compliant version but also not rich at all.
I always think that my adventures, aside of giving me fun with sport and allowing me to meet people and exciting new lands, represent an investment to get a result as an important personal enrichment and learning, which I also can share with many other people. Thus, while at in the sport side I have failed, I hope to collect many results of this adventure..Surely, both in the professional and adventure life, I will meet again many critical moments in which the circumstances will be complicated. And I will have only my attitude to manage that key moment. Then I look forward to have a good accumulation of many positive and negative past experiences to help me act wisely to overcome the situation. And in these experiences, the contribution of a good analysis of defeats like that just fit, must be fundamental.
