Most people are defense drivers. They are going about their day just trying to get from point A to point B. They are thinking about what they need to get done, who they need to call, or singing along to the song jamming on the radio. They are following with the flow of traffic, sometimes irritated by its pace or on edge, while anticipating a blindside they may have to react to. Even with being in defense mode, some don’t have the quickest reflexes when they have to slam on the brakes or veer out of the way.
Then there are offense drivers. These are the people who are on a mission to get from point A to point B. They aren’t so much concerned about the blindside or cutoff because they feel like they own the road and are in control of the situation. They are generally more confident and tend to have quicker reflexes, so that comes in handy in case they do have to slam on the brakes, but they might miss the blindside because they are so focused on getting to point B.
The rare breeds are the offense and defense combo drivers. Much like racecar drivers, these people have the ability to stay on course with their mission, have quick reflexes, get from point A to point B without breaking any laws, stop on a dime when they spot danger coming their way, are sharp with maneuvering, and ultimately are fully aware of their surroundings. It’s almost as though they have a sixth sense.
Right now, the majority of the population are driving in defense mode, both in the car and out of the car. The problem is, when you’re always on defense, you can’t see the road clearly because you are constantly anticipating and reacting to the blindsides and the head-on collisions, which is exactly what the establishment wants everyone focused on. They want everyone spinning their wheels in place and going absolutely full throttle – to nowhere.
There are some individuals who are great at driving offense and can maneuver well around small roadblocks, but the establishment always sees them coming and throws them a blindside. Though they may be confident and diligent, without any defense, they haven’t thought it all through.
Those that have the ability to drive both offense and defense can drive anything from a rust bucket to an Aston Martin, and get to their final destination unscathed, or at least with minimal damage. They are on a mission with eyes wide open, fully aware of what is at stake, how to stay focused, and not get caught in the burnout of playing defense. They’re never truly fully in control because we cannot control how others act and react, but they are able to navigate with much more ease, precision, and enjoyment because their primary focus remains on their mission, and their faith in themselves gives them the edge they need to shift into defense when necessary.
A person’s driving skills says a lot about their personality, no matter how frequently they get behind the wheel. It shows their confidence, their focus, how they react to different scenarios, how quick their reflexes are, how solid their instincts are, if they’re paying attention, how tense or relaxed they are, if they are going to let 20 people cut in front of them or if they are going to take control, if they are kind enough to stop to let the dog cross, if they are patient when waiting five minutes for school children to cross, if they always rely on GPS or if they know where they are going, if they are running on empty, if they have run their car into the ground, if they appreciate the fresh air on their face, if they are constantly fueled and sidetracked by other drivers, and if they are enjoying the ride.
The next time you go for a drive, think about these things. Are you an offense or defense driver or do you have the skill to be both? Do you want to simply go with the flow of traffic while being in defense mode, hoping to avoid the next crash, and always being on high alert, or do you want to balance it with offense, appreciate the ride – the journey – and think about how to take charge of your destination without letting the establishment constantly blindside you? If you are wearing a mask while driving alone, you are most certainly a defense driver, and you have your work cut out for you.
There is a lot of value in the saying “the best defense is a good offense,” and right now, most people are operating from the mindset of defense. Use your instincts and change your perception. The moment you say “but how…, but we can’t…, but they won’t let us…, but but but” is the moment you flipped back to defense.
Start thinking outside the box so that the only head-on collision will be the establishment running straight into a brick wall, because no one will be sitting idle to take the hit. We will already be on our own united path, and their futile attempts at sending us to the junkyard will be met with a resounding silence, until they hit that wall – when we all cheer over their self-destruction and relish over the thought of impounding all of them so they can no longer bring harm to humanity.
Who do you want in the driver’s seat – us or them? It’s time to bring in the offense with the defense. It’s time to stop reacting and start acting. It’s time to think outside the box, build and create, and dominate this game they invented for purpose of enslaving us, through civil disobedience and strategic precision to navigate these roads ahead, straight to the finish line!
