Have you ever been behind the wheel of your car heading down a familiar stretch of road and before you know it, you’ve arrived at your designation, or just barely missed your exit, or had to flip a u-turn to backtrack a little bit? I think we are all guilty of going on autopilot from time to time. From behind the wheel to behind the scenes, autopilot can be a resourceful tool, but when we are working on consciously making lifestyle changes, it’s important that we remain the commander of our vessel.
“Many of us have fallen asleep at the wheel in life, letting the outside influences guide and direct us to the path of least resistance. Unfortunately, it’s often the path of least resistance that requires very little of us. We lose our way, our goals, or ambitions when we slip into the habit of autopilot.”-Jeremy Fouts, CorVive Founder
Essential to the building blocks of CorVive is to ensure that individuals have the opportunity to fully direct their destinies by actively engaging in their lives—rather than being a bystander watching your life pass you by, CorVive Endorsers fully engage in piloting their destinies in the most opportune direction to achieve goals that create purpose and reason. You may wonder why this is so important to me and why I train on it…and that is because without actively engaging in your life you may end up at a destination where you’d rather not be.
I have experienced the moments in my life when I left the driving up to the wind and occasionally it took me to where I needed to be, more often than not when I was disengaged is where I found trouble. Daily things from maintaining your health, to maintaining your financial health, to even your personal relationships all suffer when you check out and don’t check in often enough to see forward momentum…because remember if you’re not going forward you’re going backward.
“If you’re not engaged in your life propelling it forward you most likely end up going in reverse.”-Jeremy Fouts, CorVive Founder
My advice to you is to commit to yourself to have a say in your destiny. In simpler terms—Grip that wheel! Have fun with life. You get to enjoy your time here for a brief minute so squeeze all you can out of this wonderful existence. When you master the ability to be behind the wheel in all of your decisions in life, you’ll be surprised how much power you really have to control the direction your life takes. You may seek advice from trusted friends and mentors to check your roadmap from time to time and don’t be afraid to ask, because if there happen to be any warning signs, chances are your teachers and coaches have been there. Regardless, take the wheel, enjoy the ride, and don’t fall asleep at the wheel.
