Uncertainty can be one of the Keys to Success
Life is a risk itself. You can strategically plan your personal and professional life. You can make careful choices and take what you think are the appropriate actions to fulfill the ideal life you want. But there is absolutely no way of knowing with certainty what will happen. Look at all the variables and unexpected twists and turns that come into play. What I can tell you, is there is no sure way of knowing how your life will turn out in the long run. Well, guess what? You’re not supposed to. If you did, the thrill of life would cease to exist.
Some people say that life is a game, and as you well know, anything can happen in the game of life. Here is the analogy, sitting in the stands at a base ball game. The bases are loaded, bottom of the 9th, 2 outs and last man at bat. The crowd is roaring. The team has coaches, the players are all in top physical shape and play together as one tight team. Even though we have all the right things set up we never will know the outcome.
Here’s my point. Who can deny that the enjoyment and the excitement was coming from the anticipation of not knowing for certain which team was going to be victorious? My question to you is this: What would be the point in watching the Super Bowl, or any other sporting event, if you knew beforehand which team would win? Who can deny that it’s in the not knowing that makes it exciting and worthwhile?
It’s the same with the game of life—yours, mine and everyone on this planet. Unlike any other game, however, the goal in the game of life is not to win or to be the best, but rather to follow your heart regardless of your circumstances and to learn life’s lessons along the way. It’s the journey that matters most not the destination. And its how you enjoy and learn from that Journey.
Whether you view life as a dance, a school, a game or a test doesn’t matter. A major key to a happy, successful life is to embrace uncertainty. The adventure into the unknown is where you experience who you are and what you’re made of. It’s where your character is tested and molded. When you take that leap of faith into uncertainty, you are sending a message to yourself, as well as the universe, that you are not only here, but you are qualified and ready to face any challenge along the way. You may be on top one day and suddenly fall the next, but think about this—isn’t it better to fall than to not try at all? Through the years after many, many falls it has taught me my strength and my resilience. All my wisdom certainly came from those failures.
Throughout history, some of the world’s greatest thought leaders didn’t succeed because they were dead sure that they would; they succeeded because they wouldn’t allow doubt and fear of the unknown to keep them from succeeding. In other words, they embraced uncertainty. That’s right, they had doubts just like you and me. Many had to confront their fears every step along the way on their road to success. But the one thing they all have in common is a profound understanding that uncertainty is where life unfolds and opportunity awaits them.
The biggest mistake we can make when you set out to achieve our goals is to depend on certainty. Why? Because success is never certain. There is always some kind of risk involved. Always! The fortunate among us know this in a profound way, and they live their lives accordingly. They participate knowing there’s a chance they can fall and lose it all. Its time to play the game of life, aware that defeat is a possibility, but choose to focus on a victorious outcome.
So if your willing to attend the school of life, knowing that you will be subjected to difficulties, challenges, loss and tragedy, but the important point is to learn the lessons, which will prevail.
In short, we have no guarantees… only choices. The right to choose one’s own way. And that choice happens every second, every day.
All I can tell you, is the take that choice with confidence and see it as being the right choice and go for it. Either way you are right because that choice is called living.
So if your fearful of taking that leap of faith, not knowing how to jump or when, that is when life coaching comes into play. We work together and look at where you are and through my guidance, I help you jump off into your dream. Its time to build your confidence and live that dream.
