I’m sure a lot of you can agree that most of our behaviors, habits, decisions and responses stem from complex invisible patterns passed down from our families and society.
In most cases, we become the passenger and not the pilot of our own lives.
We continue to allow these familial beliefs, rituals and faulty messages to derail our dreams and prevent us from living joyful lives.
A pilot is in charge of the instrumentation that paves the way for a smooth, safe journey. In other words, the pilot makes the decisions about how and when to react in unpredictable situations. She follows a specific flight pattern to get you safely to your destination. On the other hand, as a passenger, you simply take a backseat, turn the control over to the pilot and wait to be delivered to your destination.
Your life is similar to that of a pilot and a passenger.
In life when you sit back and allow someone else to take charge of where you are going, it can mean you end up somewhere other than where you want to go.
When you’re faced with turbulence in your life, do you take control and decide what’s the best course of action or do you depend on others to direct you and make the decision whether it’s safe or risky to move forward?
