Is Uncertainty the Only Thing Certain in Our Future?

Is Uncertainty the Only Thing Certain in Our Future?

“In 2022, we find ourselves in the third year of a pandemic unseen for 100 years. Instead of a clear path toward its conclusion, we can only be certain of continued uncertainty.  Common sense has vanished among those entrusted to lead the country as politics invades every area of life is a struggle between retaining the founding principles or abandoning them in favor of socialist government control.  As I wrote in Navigating Life’s Journey: Common Sense in Uncommon Times, uncertainty results in anxiety and grief. It is exponentially worse for those inexperienced in life’s challenges. 

We have two choices to respond to difficulty.”Richard Battle

Common sense has vanished among those entrusted to lead the country.   As politics invades every area of life, it’s a struggle between retaining the country’s founding principles or abandoning them in favor of socialist government control. 

 

As Richard wrote in Navigating Life’s Journey: Common Sense in Uncommon Times, uncertainty results in anxiety and grief. It is exponentially worse for those inexperienced in life’s challenges. 

 

We have two choices to respond to difficulty. 

  1. Hunker down, and wait for it to end, which appeals to the risk-averse crowd. 
  2. Utilize the time to grow, learn, prepare, and seize opportunities others avoid to leapfrog the first group in the pursuit of life’s dreams. 

In the interview, Richard and John talk about how to seize opportunities and keep pursuing life’s dreams.

Matt Peale on Pain and How to Eliminate It

Matt Peale on Pain and How to Eliminate It

Pain, something especially as we get older, there just seems to be more of it to deal with. With everybody being different, pain can affect people in different manners. Also, certain individuals have a higher pain tolerance than others and are just willing to put up with more pain. But we need to ask the question, “Is that always a good thing?”

Addressing pain as soon as possible can prevent you from having more difficulties later in life. and it’s probably causing more problems than you may realize at the time. To deal with pain effectively, in most cases, it’s not just the stretching or portion of it, but it’s really the strengthening of the opposite side of the muscle that can be just as beneficial as stretching.

Matt Peale the author of Athlete in the Game of Life breaks down the science of corrective exercises that will help you stay healthy, fit, and pain-free with real-world solutions.
