What do you want?

This can be one of the hardest questions to answer. Success, money, happiness, love, freedom? Those are some real but vague answers.

I preach a lot about going out of your comfort zone and stepping into the unknown. There is no better way to learn and grow than to do something you’ve never done before and be forced to figure it out.

But why do you want to learn and grow in the first place? It’s not so you can be in a constant state of uncertainty. It’s so that you can gain stability.

Instability is the necessary stepping stone that leads to stability. When I imagine the success, money, happiness, love, and freedom I will earn in my life, I imagine them as stable things that I will earn and keep.

Don’t lose sight of why you are embracing uncertainty in your life. It is not to be uncertain, it is to develop certainty over time. Don’t swear off any sort of stability for the sake of learning and growing because it’s the stability at the end of the tunnel that makes the uncertainty valuable and necessary.
