Our lives are never smooth sailing. We are always faced with different situations constantly in life. To navigate smoothly through life we need to change gears at appropriate times in order to handle different situations.
There are two classes of people. Those who live in constant fear of the future and spoil the present for themselves. And then there are those who just drift about aimlessly in life. Both these types of people need to change gears to handle their current position.
Those who worry and are anxious about a terrifying future must shift a gear down. They need slow their lives. They need to take each day as it comes and not worry about a distant future. Why should one worry about something that may only happen in future. By worrying about the future in the present we make our lives unbearable.We should take each day as it comes. If the crisis, which we imagine, does occur, then we will be better equipped to handle as we would not have wasted our energies worrying about it even before it happens.
Then there are others who just exist from day to day. They just seem to go through the motions of the day just existing and living in a mechanical way. They seem to devoid of any purpose. They are bored and listless with their lives. These people need to shift a gear up and set little goals in their life, If they try to achieve the little targets that they set for themselves then their life will have a purpose. It is very essential that we have a clear plan of where we want to go in future and how we will achieve it in the present. Our lives will be more full if we take this approach.
Hence as we travel through life we need to make appropriate changes so that we move towards thr future with a purpose and without undue worries.
