STAY IN YOUR LANE!
There is a famous phrase which states that “Cut your coat according to your size.” Well, people may want to cut their coats 1 or 2 sizes bigger or smaller for varied reasons. Irrespective of our choices, this statement emphasises the need for individuals to stay on his/her lane of life.
We live in a highly competitive world; with each one striving to meet their highest potentials, and be comfortable. In as much as competitiveness brings tons of benefits in our society, it also breeds negative thoughts, emotions and behaviours. It breeds jealousy, fear, frustration, anger, resentment, sadness, guilt, Rage, Loneliness, to name a few. These emotions subsequently are the root causes of mental and physical health.
We can’t deny the fact that life is like a motorway, with many lanes. We have slower lanes for drivers who can only run 30 or 40 miles per hour. And we have faster lanes for 50 to 90 miles per hour. The good news is that anyone can change lane at any time if they’re willing to respect the rules. But before you do that ensure that you have what it takes to match up; if not, you may become a hazard. You may also be frustrated, and it could be deadly.
So, what do you do to avoid all these? The simplest answer is to stay on your lane. Be grateful for what you have and what you are. So long as you have your destination( goals or dreams), go at your desired speed until you arrived at your destination. It is not the speed that matters; it is the vision, consistency and determination that matter. Don’t crash because you’re speeding to meet others or to overtake others. Take it one day at a time and stay focus. Be SMART!
