Whenever we set out for a goal, the path isn't always clear, it’s not always certain what the outcome will be, there’s a lot of uncertainty that goes into it. And uncertainty isn’t easy to deal with, it’s difficult to go out and do things, when there's no guarantee it will pay off, when we’re not sure what the outcome will be, but you don’t need to always be in a constant state of worry and anxiety about it, here’s a few ways to help you deal with uncertainty
Our brains are biased towards being negative, it’s a survival instinct, to focus on things that could harm us, or put us in danger, so when we have to deal with uncertainty or doubt, the things that could go wrong will most likely, be the things your thinking about most
And thinking about stuff like that, every day, is not something that you want to be doing. The way to overcome this, is by focusing on what’s good - focus on what you’re grateful for
There’s been so many studies done, where they talk about how expressing gratitude has elevated peoples levels of happiness, and helped remove those feelings of doubt.
So just write down a few things you’re thankful for, to help overcome that uncertainty.
DON'T EXPECT IT, PLAN IT
Your expectations can be dangerous, if you expect something to be bad and negative, you’ll be thinking about something in that way, and if you’re thinking negative you’ll feel negative. But then again if you have your expectations too high, they probably won’t measure up and you’ll be let down. So don’t focus on what could happen
Focus on what you can do to make it happen, focus on the plan, focus on everything that’s in your control and plan it out, you can’t control what’s happening in the world right now, but you can control how you react to it
A lot of the time, when you’re feeling uncertain, you’re living in the future, you’re worrying about everything that could go wrong.
But the future isn't set in stone, nothing is confirmed, you can’t focus on that, you need to focus on what’s happening right now in the present moment, because the present is building your future - so stop looking ahead, and look at what’s in front of you, and focus on that.
