So, Who's Driving Anyway?

Who determines what you will become? That is a deep question. Maybe too deep for a simple blog that you are just scanning. But, stop and ask yourself who is driving your life. Are you behind the wheel or is someone else?

O.K., so maybe you are at the wheel but the car is full of backseat drivers telling you where to go and how to get there. Your boss, your spouse or significant other, the economy, your friends, teachers, parents, siblings, pastor/priest/rabbi/church leader, your email, Facebook friends, children and Dr. Phil are all encouraging or trying to influence you on how you should live your life and what to do next. It might even feel like you are no longer responsible for what you will become because the car is on auto pilot and someone else is plugging in the coordinates for you.

Remember, "you are the ringmaster of your circus." You are behind the wheel, the keys are in the ignition and the engine is running. What will you do now? It is wonderful to have people in your life that will help guide and direct you. But, at the end of the day, it is up to you to put your foot on the gas and steer yourself in the direction you choose. Make a conscious decision on where YOU are going and how YOU are going to get there.
