Are you driving into the ditch in your life or to your destination?
Hi, folks, Christopher with Change My Life Coaching here. I wanted to speak to you today, about driving into the ditch versus driving to your destination. And you might think I’m talking about cars or vehicles, but I’m actually not, and it’s a really great metaphor. So the idea behind this metaphor, is that so often when we’re driving, if you look at the cute animals on the side of the road, that’s where your car starts to go, it starts to go into the ditch. But, if you’re looking forward towards the destination, the place that you’re trying to get to, then your car is safe and happy, and moving in the right direction.
Life is a lot like this. Life is like driving in a car, and sometimes we’re focused on what’s not working, we focused on the things that are out of our control. Maybe there’s a goal you we want to achieve. Maybe there’s something happening at work, or something happening in your personal life, and you’re focused on the part of it that you can’t control. That’s like looking at the cute animals on the side of the road. You’re driving into the ditch, you’re heading in the wrong direction. And it’s really hard to get to your destination, if you’re looking off into the ditch.
So instead, even though it can be really difficult sometimes I want to encourage you to keep looking at the destination, and what’s gonna get there. The best way to do that, is by focusing only on those things that you are in control of, the things that you have control of, the things that you can make choices and decisions about, the actions that you can take, and not worry about what other people are doing.
As it relates to driving into the ditch versus driving into your destination, keep your focus on that destination, stay solutions minded, and at some point in time you’re gonna get there. Thanks, very much, this is Christopher Lawrence with Change My Life Coaching.
