Most of the time you’re not going to be sure. That’s the challenge of making hard decisions and trying to pursue your goal without having already been down the path that you need to go.
There are clues that lead you to believe you should be doing what you’re doing.
The insights and perspectives of those you trust are convincing enough that you’re going to follow through on their advice.
You’re locked in and pointed at the target.
But you’re still not sure that what you’re doing is the right thing to do.
You’re not certain. And you desperately want to be.
You sure would feel a lot better if you knew without a doubt that all your effort and strategy and investment is going to pay off this time around.
That’s not going to happen. Not if you have big dreams and audacious goals.
The hard stuff is always the most uncertain stuff. No one else has done it. You’re the first one.
It’s all on you. And all in your head.
Success demands that you be able to handle the uncertainty and fear you feel attempting greatness.
You have to get up and go to work even when you’re not sure that what you’re going to do is going to pay off that day…or any day.
You have to invest in yourself and give value and try even though you’re not sure that it’s going to yield the results you want so desperately for yourself.
It’s really quite a simple decision. You either lose the day waiting to find certainty or win the moment by navigating towards where you think you want to be.
You might lose. You might fail.
All of your effort and imagination might yield none of the results that you expect. Or you might just be fantastically correct.
Regardless, all that matters is that you try. That’s the best you can do.
Uncertainty is the only certainty. Don’t wait until you’re sure. Be obsessed with trying.
