The 4 Certainties of Life

Nov 06, 2022

Death and taxes aren't the only things life gives us without fail.

There are 4 other constants in life, what I like to call the “4 C's of Life”.

Certainty #1: Change

If there is one thing we can count on in life, it is that change will come. 

Change doesn’t care whether we like it. It gives no consideration to how prepared or unprepared we are. With change comes emotions that run the gambit, from fear and anxiety to excitement and eagerness. 

Change is an inevitable fact of life, which also brings chance.

Certainty #2: Chance

Chance is the beautiful gift of change.

With chance, we have the opportunity to evolve, to create, and to experience something new and different. We get to make mistakes and learn and grow from them. Chances are easy to overlook especially given our busy lives.

Sometimes we need to slow down, take a deep breath, and look around to see the many chances that are waiting for us to choose from. 

Certainty #3: Choice

Chance’s gift to us is choice. 

With choice, we decide which path we want to take in life. We get to try something new, be someone different, deepen the path we are already on, or do nothing. 

The power of choice is in our capable hands and with every choice comes consequence.

Certainty #4: Consequence

Although we are free to choose, we are not free from the consequences of our choices.

Sometimes we like what we get, sometimes not.

The beauty of the 4 C’s of Life is that:

If we don't like our consequences, we have the chance to change our choices to bring about the consequences we want to see and experience.
