I never considered uncertainty to be an extraordinary driving force in my life. Although I also never thought it was an obstacle that prevented me from moving forward in life.
I was born and raised in Mexico, where uncertainty is an ordinary force in my culture, especially when economic resources are scarce or non-existent.
Although planning is certainly essential, and I admit that it is not one of my strengths, instead, I learned to embrace Uncertainty because my adult generations in Mexico did the best with what little they had. They were often unable to plan for the future, but they worked hard, only wishing for a better and prosperous life.
From my adult generations, I learned that with commitment, work, and faith, we could create the life we wanted in the future for ourselves and our family long before reaching our imagined goals.
Today I live in the United States. From my childhood until today, I believe that the Universe has created a path just for me.
My daughter served in the United States Coast Guard for ten years; Now, she helps veterans file their disability. She is happy to help others have a better future. My son served in the U.S Army, he is now an Artist in 3D Graphic Design, and a few months ago, his dream of buying a home came true.
I was a teacher in Mexico. I had stability in my job, but the future of my children was not in Mexico.
When my husband and I moved to the United States, I took my uncertainties and added my adult generations' valuable lessons. Uncertainty = Opportunity = Better Future.
I am an artist generally more inclined to follow my free spirit than my planning skills. Yes, I follow the unknown, such an unpredictable force to follow in any culture.
I keep walking the unknown path the Universe has created just for me, and now I am here learning to see my driving force in a whole new light. Thanks, Tony Robbins.
