People are obsessed with uncertainty… we shroud it in intrigue and talk about it as though the cause is otherworldly. But to a Maverick, uncertainty is hardly mystical. It’s the result of a choice.
Uncertainty stems from a focus on things out of our control. Certainty comes as a result of focusing on things within our control. Amazingly, life gives each of us the gift to choose which is most important (or intriguing) during any moment in time.
Certainty can strengthen with time and become more robust when backed by a healthy self-esteem (a different form of confidence), but certainty (and self-esteem) must always begin with a decision – a decision of what to focus on and what information we deem as most important.
More significant than natural ability, is a Maverick’s propensity to master the sails in unpredictable seas. There will always be forces out of our control, but the opposite is also true. The question then becomes, what is most important to you? The sails or the sea?
Be a Maverick,
