Going into the Unknown

Going into the unknown is how you expand what is known.

Humans are creatures of habit.

We love to establish a routine and stick with it. Then we often put ourselves on auto-pilot.

Routines can be incredibly useful in helping you get things done. However, too much of a routine can also make you incredibly boring.

Nevertheless, many people live lives that are boringly predicatable, or live a life where everything is outlined or planned.

Well guess what?

Life doesn’t always work out the way you plan it. You must be able to go with the flow regardless of whether you have a plan or not.

My life is not even close to what I thought it would be like a year ago. How could I have known what was going to happen? How can you?

But it’s scary to let go of your plans because then you are inviting all kinds of uncertainty into your life.

In fact, fear is the root of most spontaneity problems. By conquering those fears, you can become less dependent on your plans and live a far more interesting life.
