I was driving again the other day, manifesting more green lights. I was in a bit of a hurry to get where I was going, and my mind presented me with another analogy of life and reality.
I’ll do my best to explain it here.
Let’s say you are driving (life). You are going from Point A (where you are now) to Point B (your Goals). Every so often, you will find yourself in a pocket of traffic, surrounded by cars. You look down the road, and you can see where you are going. You alternate between matching the speeds of the surrounding cars. Occasionally, you notice an opening (opportunity) to jump out of the current pocket you’re in. You take it, and find yourself in another pocket. Relatively speaking, you are a bit closer to your Point B than the rest of the crowd of traffic. You’ve just made a conscious move to break away from the crowd. Congratulations.
This is the analogy of street driving. I equate it to be the non-competitive, and sometimes cooperative, approach to life. You are getting closer and closer to your goal, without messing up anyone else’s chances of breaking out of the traffic pockets.
Now, for track driving. You’ve seen the car races. NASCAR, and all that. These guys make a living out of getting from Point A to Point B, and doing their best to keep the other guys from getting there. Some go as far as running each other all over the track. This is more of a competitive in-your-face approach to travelling.
So, in life, I think there are really only two kinds of drivers. Street Drivers and Track Drivers.
What kind of driver are you?
