I know this title seems a little confusing, but sometimes life is confusing too, right? Well let me take a shot at explaining what this concept of trying to gain more certainty in your uncertainty is all about.

What I’m going to say next is very important so pay very close attention. You ready? Okay, here goes… Your level of success in this fast-spinning and ever-changing world is going to be in direct proportion and a direct reflection of your abilityto handle more uncertainty in your life.
We’ve all heard the saying how nothing is certain in this world except taxes and death. Well, I’m going to add uncertainty to that. So the new saying is that nothing is certain in this world except taxes, death, and uncertainty.
So there it is folks.  If you’re not comfortable with uncertainty, and most of us aren’t, then you’re going to struggle in life. Period. You have to find enough courage in yourself to look uncertainty in the eye, keep your cool, don’t let them see you sweat, and keep going as if you were certain of what you are doing.
The bottom line is that if you don’t have any uncertainty in your life, then you’re not dreaming BIG enough. Anybody can sit on the bench of life and not take a chance. But those people rarely ever do anything BIG enough to positively talk about. Life’s rewards go to the risk takers. So, regardless of that quessy feeling in your gut being caused by a little uncertainty, go ahead and take some well calculated risks and make something good happen in this world for you and your loved ones.

Trust yourself and your abilities. You’ll figure it out.

Now please share with the rest of us how you plan to use the Secret of Success of Putting More Certainty into your Uncertainty!

Thanks for your time,
