Life is like a taxi. The meter just keeps a-ticking whether you are getting somewhere or just standing still.
The analogy life is like a taxi can be interpreted in many ways. One way to look at it is that the more you put into life or give to the taxi driver the farther you will go in life. Just like life a taxi won’t sit in the middle of the street waiting for you to decide where you want to go.
A taxi and life are similar in the sense that if you don’t move forward you will not be successful. You can go wherever you want and do whatever you want to do, but when the ride is over you're gonna have to pay up.
Life will keep moving on no matter whether your standing still or moving forward, so you might as well move forward
Develop an attitude of gratitude, and give thanks for everything that happens to you, knowing that every step forward is a step toward achieving something bigger and better than your current situation.
