Proud to be mini

Don’t be deceived by a name or a size. No matter the size, anyone or anything can have big potential.

This goes for the Mini Countryman that successfully landed a backflip. Now, it may have been a smaller engine and very little clearance in the original, stock model. But like most things, it takes time and a monetary investment to make changes to a vehicle that will increase the performance.

The Countryman took some work to soup up the engine, lift the car and add some good suspension. I understand not anyone can just attempt to make changes to cars. You have to have experience in order to correctly alter a vehicle.

The stunt of creating the Countryman to backflip is truly amazing to me. I may be biased because I am a Mini owner, but it just makes me think that anything is truly possibly.

Who would have thought someone would try to attempt such a stunt? I honestly could not believe that the car landed without any injuries or accidents.

I am glad no one was hurt in the making of the stunt that I know of. I am sure the people involved are overjoyed. Some sources online have stated that this is the first ever successful backflip by a car. To car enthusiasts, this is a huge success.

This stunt to some could be like graduating from college, getting married, having a child or running a marathon. It marks a milestone of completition. If you think about it that way, it doesn’t seem crazy that people actually would want to attempt this stunt.

Maybe my analogies are not relevant, but doesn’t it make you wonder how such a “mini” vehicle could pull off something as “big” as this stunt?

I know it makes me think that anything is possible if you put your mind to it.

Hard work and patience just might pay off in the long run. In other words, don’t give up on your dreams; it is possible for you to succeed at anything.

It amazes me how the simple things in life make me realize that no dream is too big–ever.
