There is something about certainty that creates passivity until the thing happens. Rather than taking advantage of the moments in between what we currently know and what we will know, it becomes waiting. We gotta stop waiting til we’re certain. We gotta start doing what we’re called to do regardless of the discomfort that comes with uncertainty.
I was listening to a clip on Instagram the other day and it really hit home for me. It was about successful entrepreneurs. A man said that people really push for entrepreneurs to be risk takers and to play with big stakes. But some of the most successful entrepreneurs didn’t play with high stakes. They took calculated risks. They didn’t know what was going to happen but they had things in place just in case things went south. I found that interesting. I think some people who haven’t done the research, don’t realize how much isn’t at stake when stepping into uncertain situations.
We wait and wait and then the end finally comes and we wish we didn’t waste so much time waiting. We wish we spent more time enjoying the life that’s right in front of us.
Point is that certainty isn’t required so stop waiting for it.
