Why Certainty Matters
“There is a vitality, a life force, an energy, a quickening that is translated through you into action, and because there is only one of you in all time, this expression is unique. And if you block it, it will never exist through any other medium and will be lost.”
― Martha Graham
If you are like me, deep down you gut-wrenchingly know you’ve got more to offer the world. Feeling bottled up. Trapped in a glass jar and “not knowing” how to get free. How to contribute to the world fully.
It is frustrating and confusing.
Like being in quicksand, “not knowing” drags you down and sucks your life out. It is the thief siphoning gas out of your tank each night. It leaves you stuck in your driveway, unable to experience what the world has waiting.
The opposite of “not knowing” is certainty.
Certainty means solid footing. A place from which you can be balanced and propel yourself forward. It is the foundation. A full gas tank. The bedrock upon which and great achievement and iconic lives are built.
Certainty allows for deep precision. No wasted effort. Where your laser focus can cut through the thickest of challenges. Where you enter flow state and quantum leap your progress forward. This hyper jump is difficult to quantify, but without certainty, it cannot take place.
Certainty enables connection. Being present. Living in the here and now where life truly happens. No distractions, just you and this moment. The ability to fully drink in life’s full deliciousness, second by second, in slow motion.
Presence is the deepest power within, but can only exist when we let go of the non-present.
Just as Maslow documented, if we don’t have certainty in our basic needs met, achieving self actualization never has a chance. Certainty is the stairway past basic needs, and into infinite possibility and actualization.
You’ve got to build your foundation, your launch pad, before taking flight.
Your wings want adventure and variety, but your heart needs certainty first.
Stop looking at the penthouse, it will happen soon enough. Instead focus on the bedrock below. It is the key. When the wind rises and the ground shakes, it is the solid base that will keep you steady. Without the foundation, no penthouse is possible.
All things must be set in order before anything grand can arise.
How do you gain certainty?
Ultimately, certainty comes from recognizing and developing your own self worth. Knowing that no-matter-what-happens, you can handle it.
This can’t be bought. It must be hard-earned by experience, adversity and growth. Once you’ve tested the fibers of your character and walked through the fire, you’ll know how capable you truly are. Your impurities burnt out. Your confidence will skyrocket.
You’ll know it’s not about what’s going on “out there”. It’s what’s happening “in here” that matters.
Certainty dwells within.
You get to choose. It will test your courage, but ultimately you decide what matters. That is self reliance at the highest level. Knowing that your own Sun rises and sets according to your choice.
So it’s up to you.
Build that foundation. Steady cash flow. Good relationships. Healthy lifestyle.
When you aren’t worried about your next meal, you begin looking at how to build something that matters. Whether that’s curing cancer, creating a work of art, or a raising family is inconsequential. It matters to you.
Certainty offers that luxury, that boldness. Controlling your own outcomes. Creating according to your will, not the will of others. You can powerfully move into the world with intent and purpose. No looking over your shoulder. No doubt in your step.
Certainty allows clarity.
If you are looking for your purpose in life; if you don’t know what you want in a relationship; if you aren’t sure about your career, you lack clarity.
Clarity enables you to easily distinguish the right person, idea, or opportunity from a distraction. Too much vital energy is dumped into the black hole void of confusion. Don’t make this mistake. Get clear.
“With a lack of clarity around Purpose, it becomes impossible to differentiate an opportunity from a distraction”
— Garrett Gunderson
That’s one of the reasons that many of the world’s wonders were built under the rule of Monarchs. Rulers had unbridled certainty and power. They could harness all their resources in creating something epic. That’s impossible when you are diluted.
Just as the Monarchs did, Certainty allows you to look into the future and choose to create epic things. Heroic things. What your heart truly desires.
It is the well spring of all inspired genius. It stretches your imagination to is limits and taps your true capability.
Imagine being able to live your entire life that way. Totally clear.
So get out of your glass jar. It may take time. It WILL take effort.
Build your foundation. Your certainty. And know that you are capable of more than you can possibly grasp if only you’ll let yourself go for it.
