You may already be a winner

Do you have fantasies about someone or something coming along to rescue you from your current circumstances? Do you spend much time thinking about winning the lottery, getting an unlikely "big break," or being beset by a large-scale disaster that changes your circumstances without your having to take any action? If so, you might be experiencing drift, which is characterized by a lack of responsibility for your circumstances and direction.

What is your favorite (or most frequent) fantasy about being rescued by external forces?
How likely is that to occur? If it did occur, what big, difficult decisions would you be able to avoid?

This week's theme is drift.
