Uncertainty is a part of life. You never really know how a situation, a relationship, or a goal will turn out. Uncertainty does not bother some people. Some even enjoy that aspect of life.

However, for others, uncertainty can be stressful and stifle growth. Do you find yourself shying away when you are unsure of how something will turn out? Some people don’t even try if there is a chance of failure. Here are a few tips to help you embrace life’s uncertainty.

Acknowledge Your Growth

Take some time to acknowledge your progress—all of the goals you have worked toward, the progress you have made, and the big decisions you have faced. Uncertainty might be a part of life, but that does not need to scare you. Growth can be uncomfortable and even scary. Learn to find comfort in being uncomfortable.

Build a Learning Mindset

You are a work in progress. Everyone is growing, adapting, and learning. Try to maintain a learning mindset. You are learning from everything you do throughout the day, even the things you deem unsuccessful. If you are learning, then you are growing.

Embrace Resistance 

Certain things throughout life will scare you. You will find more confidence when you take that fear and let it motivate you to push further.

Uncertainty can feel stressful because of the significant unknown aspect to it. When you cannot control a situation, you may find yourself pulling away. Embrace the resistance you feel about uncertain situations. If you are trying, you cannot fail. Even unsuccessful situations can have great benefits.

Find Support

Having a solid support system can be highly beneficial. Talk about what is worrying you, stressing you, or affecting your mental health.

Sometimes when we talk through a situation, we can see it more clearly. Reach out to your friends, loved ones, or a mental health professional if you find yourself struggling to face uncertainty.

Uncertainty is a natural part of life. There will be situations where you may not be successful, or things may not go as planned. Learning to embrace uncertainty will help you to grow and continue to strive towards your goals. Fear of the unknown can stifle growth, impact relationships, and disrupt goals.
