Do you ever sit and think about the uncertainties of the future? Do you ever feel your stomach tighten, your neck tense and ears start to have a burning feeling? Do you ever break into a cold sweat which you keep wiping only to find that your brow is still dry? Do you ever think about the future? Do you ever ask yourself questions you do not have answers to? Questions like what next? So after doing what I am doing currently, what next? Is what I am doing defining who I am? Will what I am doing make me happy in the long run? Why am I doing what I am doing at the moment?
Does the future scare you sometimes like it does me? Do you feel anything slated for a place called future unpromising like I do? Get a good education, get good grades, get a good job, get a good car, get into a good neighbourhood, get a good wife, get good kids, but is that an end in itself? Is good really good enough? Is good a worth in itself? What will you sacrifice to get something good? No, let me rephrase what would you sacrifice to have a future? The people you call friends, will you be of the same clout in that future? Or will they be better or worse off that you will be? If either do you move on with your life or try and synchronize yours with theirs, either by scaling the walls that separate you to reach where they are or by dropping a ladder so they are able to reach you, if you are the one on top?
So you have a plan, an idea, project huh? Do you think that it will materialize? Does that not so appealing probability of failure scare you? Oh, so you have a plan B? Ever heard of the theory behind 7 up as a start up? Do you think you could bear six failures before your idea, plan or project sees the light? Do you have what it takes to push that plan, idea or project to the finish line?
With the uncertainties life and the so called future presents to us, do you believe that you will pull through no matter what? Do you have what it takes to face those uncertainties? So what are your uncertainties, if you care to indulge me?
