There’s a lot of fear and uncertainty “out there” right now.
There’s a lot of fear and uncertainty “in here” for me right now too.
But when you think about it, nothing is anymore uncertain now then it is ever been.
WE CAN NEVER REALLY KNOW WHAT WILL HAPPEN.
Any idea we can is simply delusion.
I mean, even though I’m not planning to I could literally in the next moment drop down dead – hopefully I won’t but I could.
This is my solution.
When I find myself facing enormous amounts of uncertainty and fear about what’s going on out there…
First Step: Remember Nothing Is Certain
I remind myself that absolutely nothing is certain. When I simply can’t predict what is going to happen in the next second, let alone in the next week or the next year.
That is the only thing that is certain.
That is the only reality that makes any kind of sense. I do not know what is going to happen.
Second step: Feel Gratitude
I absolutely and utterly through my whole being grateful to this moment right now.
Grateful to have the gift of experiencing this moment right now.
Whether this moment be good, bad, beautiful or ugly.
Third step: Shift Your Focus
I commit myself to shifting my focus away from the “fire-hose of doom” as I call it and towards how I can create and contribute my unique value to the world even if that creation and contribution seems somewhat ridiculous in the face of all this doom and gloom.
Final Step: Commit to A Daily Practice
to actually commit daily to creating that contribution and values.
Hopefully this will help you too. I will do everything I can to help you create and contribute your value to the world.
I hope this has in some way help you overcome that fear and uncertainty that is all around us right now.
What do you do to overcome the “firehose of doom” and keep creating?
