Do you want to be a Ball or the Player?

Do you want to be a Ball or a Player? Imagine a football field and a game going on. Two entities are very active. One is the players and the second is the ball. Both are moving fast and very busy in their own style. The players see the opposite goal into which they want to kick the ball. They focus on the ball at every moment. They keep on kicking the ball towards the opposite goal while preventing  it from going into their own goal. They recognize the positions of their team mates at every moment and pass on the ball to them as needed.  And now look at the second busy body, the ball. It is not sitting idle but moving all the time. But what a different kind of movement! The ball is waiting for some player to kick it. It knows no goal and has no capacity to choose its path. We are all born to be players. But many people behave like a ball, waiting passively for some player or circumstances to kick them in some direction. They feel they are helpless. Do you choose to be a player or a ball?
