How do your sail the ship of your life?

Since we just completed our first ever cruise, I found this thought both timely and inspiring.

Being a successful, relaxed and confident person is not about controlling your environment, controlling your kids, controlling your partner or even about controlling your life, but instead, it’s about being able to respond to it with extreme flexibility.

A captain of a ship can’t control the wind, the sea, or the weather and those who think they can, will eventually hit something and and quite possibly die.

Successful sailors don’t try to control the wind or the water, but instead, they respond to those challenges in such a way that the wind and water become allies to move them forward towards their goals. Slowly, steadily and with clear focus onwards, towards the ports on the other side of the widest oceans.

It’s in seeking co-operation and acceptance with our environment that we reach our goals, and when we have learned how to do that, then we are free.

Free from fear and strong in the knowledge that no matter which way the wind blows, we will know what to do to get where we want to go.

What kind of sailor are you?
