13. Embrace Change

Learn to deal with uncertainty

 So how do you know what is the right path to choose to get the result that you desire? And the honest answer is this. You won’t. And accepting that greatly eases the anxiety of your life experience.

 You know that uncertainty you feel today? It never goes away. The question is, do you know how to make uncertainty your friend?

 This is your time and it feels normal to you but really there is no normal. There’s only change, and resistance to it and then more change.
