Passenger And A Driver’s seat

The are two types of people in the universe, a Driver and a Passenger and they’re all having different destination at the end of the day.

In most cases passengers they don’t have the mentality of a driver, and that leads them into frustration because they don’t have the road map to where the driver is taking them. We all gunning for an easy way to everything that we want to accomplish in life, and there is no easy way, it all depends on which route you take to your destination and that’s the driver’s responsibility hence, why you put all your faith in him.

People with driver’s mentality they often are the ones who are willingly so to take major risk for better results or greater achievement, and it is embedded into their DNA to go big or go home. However this mentality can be taught to anyone who has that potential to obtain it

A passenger has the potential energy, which scientifically it’s the energy store on an object on its resting point. Energy that is not used leads to frustrations, anger and resentment. On the other hand a driver has the kinetic energy which is the momentum energy, which is the driving force behind the impact that a driver can have towards its surroundings.

For example, take a taxi driver for instance that’s the only person who knows which route to take to your destination faster,and also He can delay you if they want to.

Being a passenger can be nice for a certain amount of time, but as the time goes you’ll feel like you are useless and reaching your desired position takes forever and that’s when you’ll switch seats and take the driver’s seat and lead your own path.

To be a leader that doesn’t necessarily mean that you have to deliver everyone to the promise land, but you can lead yourself to it then leave foot prints for the next coming generation or the next person. By doing so, you’re giving others the opportunity to get into the driver’s seat and find a way to the promise land of their own.

A passenger on a road journey is in the hands of a driver; a reader embarking on a book is in the hands of a narrator.
