Be in control of your life. Be a driver, not a passenger nor a conductor in your life matters. Be a major player, not a spectator. Be a major contributor, not a seeker.
Your life is precious! Nobody can drive your life the way you would. You can’t be a passenger when it comes to your life. If you don’t take the driver seat, you may sleep; and you wouldn’t know where you are heading to in life. You have to be actively involved when it comes to getting to your desired destination. Don’t let the boisterous wind and water of life take over the control from you!
Many people have willingly surrendered the control of their life to another driver. If you never knew before, God is in control of everything, but He has given you the power to take charge of your life, situations, and everything created.
Have you ever seen a car that moves without a driver? You said yes. If the car is ignited by a driver, and the driver jumps out of the car, the car is surely heading for an accident. Your life is in danger when you stop controlling it, at any point in time. Moreover, if the car is programmed, and left moving on its own, it can never move on another route. For instance, if a car is programmed for use in China, to use it in Nigeria would be a challenge, unless, it is re-programmed. If you program your life according to a way of life, it cannot work when you face a challenge of life. A programmed life can never move at the desired speed.
In life, some parents/guidance have programmed the life of their children/wards, instead of leaving them to decide what they want, and want to be in life by themselves. Whether you are parents or guardians, what you need to do is to guide your children to take a correct decision in life. You don’t decide for them, leave the steering in their hands, and guide them along the way. When they move too fast, caution them.; when they are moving towards a pot hole or a bend, hint them. When you have taught them about life, leave the control in their hands, and be watching afar off. Notwithstanding, you can call them once in a while to test their driving expertise in the things of life, you can become Socrates to them, to squeeze the best out of them.
The car veers off the road when you switch to thinking about another event while driving. The same phenomenon applies when you stop thinking about your life just for a second. It may veer off the course. Never stop thinking about your life. Take charge and be in control.
