The solace of certainty

Certainty brings confidence

Certainty brings confidence

To live a successful life, challenge yourself and reach out to try new things. Yes, that means change. And setting goals and having the courage to go after them.

Many people aren’t prepared to do that.

They prefer the comfortable, the predictable and the repetitive. This explains the overwhelming sense of despair that defines many people’s lives. They seek fulfilment through escapism – television, gaming, gambling, alcohol, drugs and self-help seminars.

This is mindless stimulation devoid of meaning, offering a respite from reality, a momentary high, an excuse to ignore the question, ‘Why?’

Achieving, and winning, means doing more than others are prepared to do. The question is, ‘How bad do you want it?’ Beginning is always difficult. It requires action, then momentum.

While most people float along allowing life to happen to them, swim against the current, take control and make life serve you.

Success and happiness are not distant goals to capture and hold; they’re the cumulative result of everything you do. Are you prepared to have a go?
