Dealing with Uncertainty

Our world is filled with uncertainty. Uncertainty of the future can produce anxiety or insecurity in people, or cause them to avoid upcoming events or new relationships, jobs or projects. It can make people freeze, keeping them in old jobs they dislike or relationships that are unhealthy. And it can make them overreact to unfamiliar threats such as terrorist attacks.

On the positive side, uncertainty can keep people alert and inspire them to prepare for challenges, and to be careful when they are in unfamiliar surroundings. We can’t control every aspect of life, but we can introduce a degree of certainty.

This guide will provide you with information and simple self-help tips to deal successfully with uncertainty.
