Ten Things That Life's Uncertainties Have Taught Us

November 07, 2016 1518

Change is the only constant in life and uncertainty is a natural yet inevitable part of it. At times, uncertainty can be overwhelming, unless we decide to take control of it. Our actions during such times tend to define and shape our personalities, while better preparing us for the future. In the face of adversities, the path to success and happiness may seem rocky, but your choices can ultimately determine the desired end result. As they say, 'nothing worth having comes easy'.

Life's uncertainties exemplify one's character and resilience, all at the same time. They serve as parameters to help evaluate our mental strength and decision-making prowess. After all, untimely emergencies and sudden deadlines tend to crop out of thin air, thereby demanding our undivided attention.

Fortunately, when dealing with such situations, Osho's advice bodes well. He says, "Don’t call it uncertainty; call it wonder. Don't call it insecurity; call it freedom." These renowned words can help alter our perspective during the hard times.

Here are ten things that the uncertainties of life have taught us:

1. Rise to the occasion

As you make your way through life, hurdles and obstacles are sure to stand in the way. Such challenges are bound to test you and give your life deeper meaning. We say, "rise to the challenge!"

2. Adversities don't last for long

What's life without a few bumps along the way? You can never truly savour the taste of success unless you have dealt with a few adversities. Also, it helps us remember that nothing lasts forever - not even adversities.

3. Always forge ahead

How often have you come across someone contemplating their life choices? Perhaps, several times. Does contemplation serve a divine purpose? Absolutely not. In such scenarios, the best thing to do is to get a move on and strive for a better future.

4. Never take the good times for granted

Whenever we are blessed with good times, we tend to bask in their glory, and a little celebration never hurt anyone. However, you must remember to cherish these precious moments. You never know how long you have to wait before you feel that joy again.

5. Accept change positively

Change can be overwhelming for a lot of people, perhaps even life-altering. However, you can never let change affect you critically. Simply take it in your stride and keep moving.

6. Know who your real friends are

It's only when you are faced with hardships that you essentially get to know who your true friends are. There's no denying the saying, "a friend in need is a friend indeed"

7. You can't always predict the future

Who can ever predict life? We know we absolutely cannot. But we can secure certain paramount aspects of life like health, family and retirement. Here, an insurance policy can serve as the all-important saviour for you and your loved ones.

8. Time heals everything

It doesn't matter what life throws at you and how severe the repercussions are, time possesses the most astounding ability to heal the deepest of wounds and diminish the most unpleasant memories. Maybe this is why they say, "time is the best healer".

9. Make yourself relevant

This is perhaps the most important lesson that uncertainties tend to teach us. We must always prioritise our efforts towards the betterment of society and hold the willpower to leave a larger impact in the world. 

10. Do more with less

You can never fully rely on being blessed with abundant resources. Your true success lies in doing your best with whatever you have.

Change is constant, and uncertainties are an imminent part of change. Accept it, embrace it and make the most of it. For almost everything else, you can rely on insurance!
