Think about what you are putting into the universe in terms of your thoughts. As one friend once said, the universe has a wicked sense of humor. If you constantly worry about what you don't want, it'll assume you really want it. Focus on what you do want.
In running, you learn to not look behind but ahead when you run. Even glancing behind you slows you down, puts you at risk of falling, and basically keeps you from going ahead like you should. Don't trip on what is behind you.
Live your life simply and directly. Tell the truth. Follow your gut. Don't put out shit (by lying) and don't take it either.
