TOP TIPS FOR EMBRACING UNCERTAINTY

No matter how blessed your life may be, you will never be free from uncertainty. To live is to be uncertain. Even with the best laid plans, you simply can’t know what is coming next. If that’s the case, you have two choices – you can fret and worry about the uncertain, or you can embrace it. If you want to be the type of person that embraces uncertainty, then follow the tips below.

Acknowledge Your Uncertainty

Acknowledging uncertainty is the first step towards embracing it. You need to acknowledge that life is full of uncertainty and there is nothing you can do about it. Once you have accepted that universal truth, you can focus on embracing uncertainty.

Reframe Uncertainty as Excitement

Yes, it can be scary when you don’t know what is going to happen next. But guess what? Not knowing what’s next can be exciting too! Your future is full of opportunity. What new adventures and discoveries await you? Embrace the excitement of the unknown.

Remember, You Can Handle It!

Never forget that you are a strong, capable person who can handle anything that comes your way. Life is full of trials and tribulations, who better to conquer them than you? Focus on building your self-confidence, and you will notice the fear of uncertainty begin to slip away.

Embrace Imperfection

You can try your very best, but not everything is going to work out exactly the way you want. That is OK! By letting go of perfection, you free yourself from worrying about everything going exactly right. Obviously, it’s great when things work out, but sometimes life’s most rewarding experiences happen when they don’t.

Prepare for Different Outcomes

One way to deal with uncertainty is to be as prepared as possible for it. An easy way to do that is to prepare for different outcomes. You can’t possibly plan the outcome for every situation, but that’s OK. If you just focus on the most likely outcomes, you will feel much surer of yourself.

Focus on the Things You Can Control

Listen, a large part of our lives is simply out of our control. That can be an overwhelming feeling for some people. If you are feeling this way, try and focus on the things you can control. This will help you feel more in control. You can’t change the things out of your control, so why waste energy trying?

Live in the Present

Sometimes we struggle living in the present. We shouldn’t be taking life for granted, but all too often we fret about the future, or obsess over the past. When we live in the moment, we get to truly enjoy our experiences. As a bonus, focusing on the present is a great way to stop worrying about the uncertainty of the future.

Remember Everything You Have

While you are worrying about the uncertainty of the future, don’t forget to reflect on the past. All your past experiences were once an uncertainty after all. Take stock of all the great things you have in your life. Appreciate where you have come from. You will worry less about the future when you recognize just how far you have come.

Welcome Failure

One of the biggest reasons we fear uncertainty is because we are scared of failing in some way. The thing is, failure is nothing to be feared! Failure is nothing more than a lesson learned. The lesson may be painful but it’s almost always impactful. If you look at a failure as a normal part of your journey, you will feel much more comfortable with uncertainty.
