I encounter boring people every day; they lack creativity, inspiration or both. The recipe - to be that boring - is to be in the same places each day, to do the same things each day and to be with the same people each day. Yes, our minds are about certainty, comfort and control. They empower us to work for safety and comfort, but routines and daily rules kill the creative opportunities that uncertainty provides us with. On the other side of boredom, there are adrenaline junkies, the ones who do everything for variety, new places, new people and new experiences and yes, new feelings, emotions. None of those two categories is the recipe for success and balance – believe or not – the truth is in between.
Everyone needs a balance between certainty and uncertainty in life. Sounds so logical and natural, but living in this fragile, balanced state is very rare. Actually, this is one of the main reasons why so few couples feel in balance and thrive together. Both in the business and romance arena, where there is more than one, has to be created a balance between:
1) The need for growth, risk and variety, combined with
2) The need for safety, security and comfort
The level of uncertainty that one can comfortably live with is unique for each person, based on needs, character and point of view. A universal truth is - nothing new or genius has come from the comfort zone of each person. But the question is how much uncertainty can you handle to live with without feeling completely vulnerable and lacking any control. This question can empower or destroy you or give you an opportunity for new start – you make your decision. How much are you willing to stretch from your comfort zone? Are you ready to take a risk? How would stepping out of your comfort zone make you feel? Are you ready to fail? How many times can you fail before you give up?
Asking yourself these questions can and will confuse you if you are honest. But this is the only way to gain more clarity and make a move. Taking calculated risks is not a job for everyone and doing it successfully requires a lot of self-knowledge, self-awareness and courage. Be afraid only of the fear, itself.
