Dealing With Uncertainty

Today is inauguration day. Donald Trump is officially the President of the United States.

There is no way to know what will happen from here, but it seems fairly safe to say that today marks a turning point for America. History will look back on this Presidency as one that changed the course of many things.

Whether that is good, or bad remains to be seen, and probably depends on the perspective you bring.

What we do know, though, is that change is coming. And change, brings uncertainty.

In that moment of uncertainty you have two choices. Do you resort to fear, or do you stay open to possibility?

There are people much more educated on politics and the government than I am. This is not meant to be a political post. It’s about the uncertainty that is in the air right now.

The reality is that we experience it on a daily basis.

Can we meet our goal?

Will that client choose me?

Is this workout plan worth getting up early and going to the gym for?

Taking action towards anything brings with it a level of uncertainty. We do things hoping for / expecting a certain result, but there are no guarantees.

So how do you stay open, positive and moving forward vs curling up into a ball holding desperately to the status quo?

  • Know that there is opportunity everywhere. Train yourself to look for it, appreciate it, and act on it.
  • Know that the Universe has your back. The world is hard-wired to help you. It’s up to you to open up and receive that help.
  • Know that change, evolution and uncertainty are normal. We spend so much time trying to avoid or side step them, but the reality is that it’s just part of life. Embrace it for what it is.

Each one of these statements is a choice. You can choose to believe them, or you can choose a different thought process that involves blame and hate. Make no mistake about it though, the choice is yours alone, and the consequences of your choice are life changing.

What do you choose? Love or Fear?

To your success!
