Nobody knows what will happen in the next moment of our lives. Whatever is in store for us, the only thing we CAN be sure of is that nothing in life is certain. And since we all fear the unknown, life's uncertainty can be a constant source of worry to us.
But, as bestselling author Susan Jeffers explains, life doesn't have to be one worry after the next, a steady stream of 'what if's', and a constant attempt to create a secure haven for ourselves. In EMBRACING UNCERTAINTY she emphasises that an unknown future doesn't prevent a rich and abundant life, and shows how by enjoying life's unpredictability we transform ourselves from a position of fear to one filled with excitement and potential. Through invaluable case-studies, exercises and her pragmatic wisdom, Susan convinces us, above all, that life is exhilarating because of, not in spite of the uncertainty.
Jeffers, author of several books including Feel the Fear and Do It Anyway, offers a program designed to help readers achieve greater peace of mind and optimism in today's troubled times. Jeffers believes that too many people spend needless energy and effort trying to control every aspect of their lives career, health, finances, etc. Since no one can control the future, Jeffers encourages people to accept three major principles: "The only certainty is that life is uncertain"; "Once you surrender to the fact that you are unable to control the uncertainty, you will, at last, be able to breathe a sigh of relief"; and "A 'deep' acceptance that life is uncertain opens the door to a powerful way of living." Essentially, Jeffers wants people to be more optimistic and enjoy whatever is happening at the moment without excessively worrying about the future. Instead of playing the endless variation of "what ifs," people should focus on the positive aspects of their lives. She suggests people try to give back to others, which in turn will bring more love and positive events back to them. While readers looking for innovative strategies may be disappointed by Jeffers's somewhat simplistic suggestions like "Lighten up. Play with Life. Laugh a Lot," her comforting, no-blame tone may strike the right chord among those looking for a calming perspective in today's stressful world.
