Let me suggest that this pertains to our life from our birth to our grave.In this journey we experience many things goals and dreams, triumphs and struggles, success and failures, etc. Basically we go through ups and downs.
Let us say we want the best journey. Here is what the Bible recommends.Go to Jesus and abide with Him.
John 14:6 says Jesus is the way, the truth and the life, no one comes to the Father except through Him.
Jesus is our GPS or spiritual compass. In fact He is our everything.
