I sincerely believe that it is far more beneficial and far less costly to help a child build confidence than it is to fix an adult who has little or none.

Is your life on cruise control?

on August 26, 2013

lady driving a carMany of us have vehicles with cruise control.  You know that little gadget that lets you cruise along without paying attention to your speed.   It makes driving a little easier, knowing that you are maintaining a consistent speed.  The journey is smooth, easy and predictable but not very exciting.

The problem is, many of us are also using cruise control in our lives.  We move along at the same pace, doing what is comfortable and not really paying attention to everything that is going on around us.  We do the same thing every day and never open ourselves up to any changes or challenges.  This gets us to the same place every day but is this a good place to be?

Living life on cruise control is allowing life to control you, instead of being in control of your life.  It may be comfortable but it won’t make you happy and you won’t enjoy the ride.

In order to experience life fully, you need to turn off the cruise control and make some purposeful choices that will help you grow.  Open your eyes, listen and learn.  Be aware of what is going on around you. You might go the wrong way and you won’t always be going the same speed, but your journey will take you to some amazing places.  Take control of your life today!
