When I was 16, I took driving lessons from a driving instructor.
I’d been driving for over a year and because I’d had a couple of accidents my dad wanted me to undergo training by a professional.
The instructor and I only had one lesson because I only had one problem to solve — and it’s the same problem I and most people struggle with in every area of our lives.
The instructor said, “I want you to hold your hands completely steady on the wheel — don’t swerve.”
“Now, look ahead but focus more to your left.” The car glided to the left.
“Shift your focus more to the right.” He said. The car slipped silently to the right.
“The problem,” he summarized, “is that you’re wanting to drive straight ahead but you’re focusing everywhere else. And the car goes where you look.”
Question: where in your own life, are you wanting to go one direction but looking somewhere else?
Today, let’s correct course once and for all.
