How Uncertainty Is a Chance to Learn and Grow




What’s it like for you when you don’t know what’s going to happen?


Are you a thrill junky?


Do you thrive on unpredictability & adventure? LOVE living on the edge?


If so, you're only about 30% of the population!!


The other 70% of us CAN’T STAND uncertainty.


We want to know what’s going to come next. Predictability is comfortable.

Uncertainty is scary as hell.


Have you ever watched your brain in action when you’re uncertain?


It wants to categorize, to plan, to create...it’s desperate to find some kind of structure inside the uncertainty because that feels a little safer.


But, here’s the kicker...


There is no certainty. Ever.


The job you go to predictably, every day could disappear tomorrow.


The corner shop where you grab your coffee on the way to said job could go up in flames.

Your car could NOT be in your driveway tomorrow.


None of this is meant to insight fear in you. This is just reality & most of us navigate it daily without really giving it much thought.


AND uncertainty doesn’t necessarily require an incident that shakes up your life. You could be uncertain about a choice…


Where to send your child to school.


How to tell your mom that you’re going to your in-laws for Christmas.


Which new job offer to choose.


Your brain still goes into the same pattern of overdrive trying to create safety & comfort.

It may agonize over the decision, keeping you up at night.


Or you may poll 50 people for their input; many whose opinion you don’t even value.


All in the name of searching for security.


It’s normal, it’s your very human brain trying to feel safe.


And it’s utterly exhausting.


But here's the thing: Life’s inherently unpredictable, we need to learn to be ok with that.


Instead of fighting it, what if we embraced uncertainty? What if we saw it as an opportunity for growth and adventure?


Imagine letting go of the need for control and learning to dance with the unknown.


It's not about ignoring the risks or pretending everything will be fine. That’s toxic positivity

It's about finding peace in the midst of uncertainty, being present in the moment, and seeing where life takes us.


So, the next time you feel uncertain, try to see it as a chance to learn and grow.


I wonder what it could change for you.
