Most of us hunt, year in and year out, stuck in a rut of our own making. We aren’t interested in new ideas or areas. We are happy to maintain the status quo, to sit in the same stand every year, and go nowhere. Comfort isn’t growing. Comfort is boring. It is an attachment to the known, and the known is nothing more than our past.
The past exists only in our memories. Attachment to the past severely limits our possibilities in the future, and makes our hunting little more than the stale repetition of worn-out memories. We do the same things over and over again, all the while expecting different results. We’re spinning our wheels and never finding traction.

Uncertainty, on the other hand, is exciting. Uncertainty is tapping into unknown possibilities. It can be a little scary, but fear can be a great motivator.

The fear of change lies somewhere between the known and the unknown—that place between same old, same old and a new pattern. A pattern of what can be, not of what is.
