There are two primary ways people handle themselves in their own lives.
One person is the passenger. They allow others and outside factors to steer the direction of their lives. To dictate what happens to them, where they go, how they feel, where they end up at the end of their days.
The other type is the driver. The driver knows what they want, goes after it, and doesn’t allow anyone else or anything stand between them and the life they’re going to build, and everyone around them benefits as a result of their commitment.
Most people are passengers for a million and one different reasons.
Drivers are far more rare.
They’re not ever too busy to take care of themselves and ensure their family also has their needs met.
They’re focused and determined and seemingly “have it all.”
And simultaneously, they experience deep happiness and fulfillment because as the driver, it’s what they’ve chosen and created.
One isn’t better than the other – that’s not what this is about.
But the driver tends to make more out of life.
And the beautiful part of all of this is that we get to CHOOSE if we’re the passenger or the driver.
It’s never coincidence, although often we don’t realize the choice.
So, my friend…have you been living as the passenger or the driver in your own life?
No judgement either way.
And based on this analogy, is there anything you’d like to do differently?
