Growth without Uncertainty? Um…NO!
Undoubtedly we would all feel more comfortable if we could KNOW what’s going to happen in our lives, right? But, other than a few people who may seem to have secured their financial futures most of our lives actually hinge on uncertainty.
Even if you have financial stability, even certainty, there have been numerous high profile examples of “riches to rags” stories, and millions of unseen ones, in the past decade so even that is no guarantee. Financial security is quantifiable so there’s this inherent comfort because you can calculate just how comfortable you are but I can’t think of much else that is quantifiable:
- Relationships? 50%+ of marriages end in divorce.
- Health? Countless unpreventable diseases and accidents kill thousands of people everyday.
- Kids? If you have them you know that no matter how hard you try there’s no guarantee they will be “OK.”
What a powerful insight! Life is uncertain? OK, so what? Freak out? Fetal position? Cry? We ALL feel those feelings. But we ALL have the chance to fight those feelings, fight through the resistance, and MOVE. Do something! Take a step, take a half step.
In the very moment you move you are resisting the fear, the anxiety, the panic, the whatever, caused by uncertainty. When, not if, you do that, YOU GROW!
It will be hard. Comfort has no room on your train to greatness. Deal with it now by getting out of, or at least shrinking, your “comfort zone.”
Just live! About the only thing I am 99.9% certain of is that the sun will come up and that YOU (and hopefully I) will have another day tomorrow. But what about today? If you have TODAY, and you do!, then guess what? You certainly have a chance to grow. It’s entirely up to you. That’s certain power!
So, today, in this very moment, exercise your power:
FACE, EVEN EMBRACE, YOUR UNCERTAINTY;
MAKE THE MOST OF WHAT YOU HAVE RIGHT THIS SECOND;
AND GO BE GREAT!
Here is today’s VLOG:
WHAT CAN YOU DO?
Watch the videos. Share them. Comment on them. Give me something. Tell me you hate them. Tell me you love them. What I want is feedback that will help me increase the impact I am making. And if you get inspired along the way then great. They say money talks so if you want to provide feedback financially then go here to make a donation and “talk” to me. “Talk” to the thousands of youth I am trying to reach and help.
