Overcoming Fears of the Future: Embrace the Uncertainty!

Tim Ferriss says, “People tend to prefer dissatisfaction
Uncertainty. ”Indeed, uncertainty scares many of us. But you can learn to deal with it - and take countermeasures.

freedom

The limits of your comfort zone

Do you know that queasy feeling in your stomach that is before you
warns of a new, possibly risky situation? That is
the limit of your comfort zone. Within that zone there are
little uncertainty, as you repeat familiar processes. Whenever you overcome your fear and thus expand the limits of your comfort zone, then you grow as a person.

Everyday life with repetitive activities means standstill. It means conformity. As long as you are compliant, have a steady income and good coverage, you can keep the risk to a minimum. As in the legend of Icarus, the popular belief teaches us that we are not
fly too close to the sun and not too low over the water
should.

Life is a journey

Your life should be a journey with constantly new challenges. If you really want to feel alive, then you need to grow a little each day. Finally eat healthy, quit smoking, write a book, start a blog, yours
Strengthen relationships, have interesting conversations, for you
Train a marathon, travel to new countries or implement an idea that you have had in mind for a long time.

Far too often we invent new excuses to keep us going
Having to move out of the comfort zone in which we have made ourselves so comfortable. If we do have the courage to take a risk, then our environment lets us know how naive we are.

Calculated risk?

Are you familiar with that? We Germans are known for tirelessly insuring, standardizing, testing and certifying. This is intended to minimize residual risks as much as possible, which is to a certain extent
is certainly worth striving for.

On the other hand, this constant desire for stability ensures that we cling to the status quo and perceive changes as negative.
We should be aware of the consequences of changes, but not oppose them until every small residual risk has really been thought through and eliminated. John G. Bennett put it very aptly:

"Could the risk be calculated in advance?
that, it would no longer be a risk. "

Deal with fears

Holmfriebe and Sascha Lobo wrote:

"The ability to withstand a certain degree of fear of the future and uncertainty is, so to speak, the basic requirement for a life in the digital bohemian."

This is exactly what applies to all self-employed people in general.
Once you choose to live outside the care of employers and the state, you must learn to deal with insecurity.

Distribute dependencies

When you start your own business, however, you can knit your own safety net. You no longer have to rely on a supposedly secure job, but instead distribute the dependency on several clients or - better still - on them
Mass of customers, readers and fans.

Uncertainty is a brain reaction that tells us something
Important things happen in our lives - our body's own alarm system, so to speak. Depending on how great your general optimism and your willingness to take risks are, it will be easier or more difficult for you to ignore or relativize this warning from your body.

Embrace the uncertainty

Perceive the feeling of insecurity as something positive. It is the harbinger of a new experience in your life, something of real meaning.
As a remedy against uncertainty, Jonathan Fields recommends the use of a “Certainty Anchor”, which gives a familiar feeling (for example a morning routine) in his recommended book “Uncertainty”.

In addition, it is always good to make you aware of the worst possible case - the so-called worst case - and get an accurate idea of ​​what could happen if your plans do not succeed as you have imagined.

The worst case is not that bad

In general, the worst case is less serious than previously thought. The confused fears in your head are drastically reduced as you rationalize them. Be aware that there is always a way back to the old life.

Emigrants return to Germany, failed online entrepreneurs
end up in a permanent position again and in the worst case, you can temporarily spend the night with a friend on the sofa.
