A ship with no one at the wheel to steer it will easily get lost in the seas and sooner or later crash into rocks and sink to the bottom. The same applies to us humans too.
Think of your life as a ship, your mind as the engine, and you as the captain of your ship. Always be standing at the steering wheel and take charge of your ship. Never give up control, no matter what. This will help you tap into the power of your engine (your mind) to steer the ship (your life) on a proper course that takes you to your desired destination.
