“Security is mostly a superstition.
It does not exist in nature, nor do the children of men
as a whole experience it. Avoiding danger is no safer in
the long run than outright exposure.”
Many years ago when my life was in flux, I remember reaching out to someone I respected.
I told him that I’d been thinking while pursuing real estate felt like what I needed to do at that time in my life, I should maybe pursue a career path with more security.
He immediately scoffed, countering “Security! Where do you think you’re going to find that today?”
Of course some career paths are more secure than others, but we do live in a world where absolute security is an illusion, particularly at a financial level.
One can and should take financial precautions, but stock markets collapse, pension funds evaporate, divorces leave one decimated, and technology changes industries and careers overnight.
How does contemplating the absence of absolute security make you feel?
Does it increase your anxiety or worry, or does it offer a new possibility for freedom and letting go? What would happen if you played full out? What if you spent every day “grinding” toward your goals without letting fear slow you down?
