What To Do When Autopilot Leads You Astray.

Written by Denise CornellFuture You

Is this all there is?
Yep. This is it.

And you chose it.
Yes, you did.
With every non-choice you made.
Auto-piloting through your own life.
Like the shortest route was your only priority.

Let the toxic rain of uneasy wash over you.
Take a long soak in the dissatisfaction.
Feel it.
Store it away. (You’ll need it.)

See. Examine. Question.
Turn off the default.
Slow down when you’re going too fast. And press the pedal in the places you’re hedging.

It’s exactly that easy.
And hard.
So hard you’ll retreat, often.

Tap into your reserves.
Feel it.
