In Geared for Life, Byrce Kenny walks readers through the seven gears he uses to live by how he utilizes each gear and learned to shift into his purpose. He is a Monster Jam driver and in 2021 he set a Guinness world record for the fastest time. He begins the book by looking at how he got out of neutral. In 2013, he was fired from his first big job and he didn’t see it coming. They stated how they didn’t see him as committed to the mission of the business and they would be terminated. They refused to provide more of a real reason as to why they choose to fire him. He told them he wouldn’t leave without a reason as to why so they escorted him out of the office. He had to go home and explain to his wife that he lost his job during their first year of marriage. As lucky would have it the Friday before, he actually had an interview at an executive search firm. They had met prior at a training seminar and he had more questions for Byrce. He received a phone call to come interview one day before. He ended up never missing one paycheck. He shared this truth, “what you believe at your core will determine when you get back into motion.” He explained our beliefs can serve as gears and even when we go through bad situations, we can learn to shift through them.

One of my favorite chapters was about focus and being able to see through the windshield of life. In this chapter, he encouraged readers to become the best version of themselves. He shared how in 2019 he was forced to deal with his feeling of being inadequate and he wasn’t winning on the track. He was struggling with impostor syndrome. He was currently going through the motions and not adding any value to his partnership with Great Clips. He knew he had to make a change and he began to focus on who he wanted to become. He revealed the importance of faith and how this isn’t just spiritual practice. It can also mean believing in something and acting on that belief and taking the necessary steps. He admitted to not really caring for social media but he knew he needed to work on his social media presence. He decided to get creative and he would post videos and do voice overs of what he felt when his monster truck crashed. One of the videos even hit 5 million views. He used all of this to example how he become a better version of himself.

I would recommend this superb book from a Monster Jam driver who compares life principles to the different gears used in racing. I liked how he covered behind the scenes to many of his racing adventures and it gave a glimpse into this life. He relates everything back to impactful lessons we can use and apply to real life. I liked how he helped readers to get over their fear of failure and to get prepared for life. The book had a mixture of funny stories such as burnouts and how to avoid the cops. It also had more serious discussions such as being built for others and this led to him founding his organization and they raise funds to help families. I enjoyed how he enclosed tune-up questions at the end of each chapter to assist you in getting geared up for life.
