The 12 Days of Christmas Goal Setting Day 11
On the eleventh day of Christmas, my life coach gave to me…
What does it take to embrace uncertainty?
Uncertainty is uncomfortable. You are wired to want to control your environment.
Your brain is hardwired to assess and combat risk. Are you in flight or fight? Your mind doesn’t know the difference between running from a bear and deciding if you should leave your job and start your own business, or run a marathon, or insert your goal here. To your brain, they are all the same.
It’s the fear of the unknown. The best way to get past this is to embrace uncertainty. To force yourself to take action in the midst of it. You can never hope to create the life you want unless you are willing to take risks, embrace uncertainty, and get comfortable with the discomfort.
When you are willing to give up the security of what you know only then can you create opportunities, grow your capabilities, build your confidence, and expand your influence.
I am always doing that which I cannot do, in order that I may learn how to do it. -Pablo Picasso
