Have you ever waited for certainty to avoid failure? If you have you are not in alone.
Many people want certainty, given it gives them a good understanding of the unknown. Having that feeling provides a comfort level and with comfort, one then can begin to take action. What if certainty never comes? Would you simply avoid moving forward on what you want to achieve?
“Let go of certainty. The opposite isn’t uncertainty. It’s openness, curiosity and a willingness to embrace paradox, rather than choose up sides.” Tony Schwartz
I love what Tony mentioned that the opposite of certainty isn’t uncertainty! You can move from waiting for certainty, to avoid failure by doing a few simple things.
Look for others who have pushed past uncertainty instead of waiting for certainty to avoid failure.
What goal or dream do you have? Find that individual or group who you can help you push through your uncertainty.
I can recall when I began writing the manuscript to Tide Turners I had so many uncertainties. Yet I decide to push forward. I found a group of authors who could support me and provide guidance to help me. The group I came upon is Author Academy Elite led by Kary Oberbrunner. This group along with Kary provide the assurance and showed me the pathway to accomplish my goal of writing a book. The same can occur for you.
Take the time to mentally see yourself achieving, compared to waiting for certainty to avoid failure.
Have you ever sat still in a quite place and took the time to visualize what you want to achieve? Seeing everything in front of your mind, can increase your confidence and help you move from uncertainty to action.
Visualizing the future can help you push away from the dock of delay.
“Visualize this thing that you want, see it, feel it, believe in it. Make your mental blue print and begin to build.” Robert Collier
Putting good things into your mind will push you away from waiting for certainty to avoid failure.
What are you putting into your mind during the day and evening?
What you put into your mind can either propel your past certainty or it will keep you in your place of doubt, fear and anxiety.
Allow your mind to absorb things which will power growth, confidence and courage for you to move beyond waiting for certainty to avoid failure.
In a Sound Cloud episode entitled Do You Wait For Certainty? I go into more depth on how to avoid uncertainty, so you can move forward towards your goals, dreams and desires.
Instead of waiting for certainty, decide to implement these three ideas. What are you uncertain about as it pertains to your goals? Invest in yourself and see what is possible, even if you are unsure about not knowing what lies ahead.
PS: If you would like help in moving away from certainty and delay, I created the Tide Turner Assessment to help you do that. See where you are, to help push you forward.
