You start off on the right course . . . and then, the “seed of doubt” is planted in your mind. After that . . . the “seed of negativity” is whispered in your ears. And then . . . the “seed of fear” is created to hinder your forward movements. Now you are “off-balance.” Off balance simply means unsteady. You don’t know what to expect and you are not prepared. When your equilibrium is off, it is easy to get off-balance and fall.
But when there is a balance of mental steadiness and emotional stability, along with a habit of calm behaviors . . . you can remain on course. How? By hesitating before making decisions or speaking, by considering all aspects of the equation, and by striving to advance or progress in a forward moving direction. Remaining on course is a continuous progression from one point in time to another.
Staying on course is something you must follow, pursue, and sometimes chase. It is also essential to remember that to stay on course, you must remain humble. It is the route or direction where you maximize your powers and talents. It is a mode or action that is most beneficial to you and others. You must be willing to stay on course . . . no matter how far off course it may seem!
