I still miss having a stick shift, even though I have had my automatic since 2005. The active motion of moving from one gear to another is thrilling! I don’t feel near as engaged with driving when my car does all that for me.
Shifting is an action I believe we need to do with our thoughts, otherwise they are left to do whatever they want. Think of the gears 1-2-3-4 and 5. Negative thoughts do come because we are human; however, do not get stuck in first gear. Rather, shift quickly into second. Do not stop at second because doubt usually resides there. Shift into third and begin seeing things for what they are…the truth, the reality…not fear-based visions. As you move on into fourth, doubt turns to faith and belief. When you make that last movement into fifth, you see all the solutions and possibilities!
Just like driving on a long road trip, we will continually be shifting from gear to gear. Make it your goal to get to fifth for smoother sailing and greater success!
