S:1022 Principle: Surfing In The Dark

(Principles are basic truths that, when applied, cause success to come to you easier and quicker.)


Does the phrase surfing in the dark feel comfortable to you? Probably not.

Surfing, yes. More than comfortable. Wahoo! Ride the big one! Feel the power! That’s what surfing is about. Even if you don’t surf the monster waves the pros do you are still participating with something alive and moving. You are engaged.


What if it’s dark? What if you can’t see where you’re going? What then? What’s missing?

Certainty is what’s missing. We like certainty.

Yet life, by its very nature, is uncertain. The next moment, while generally predictable, is inherently uncertain.


Coaching Point: Thus aren’t you always surfing in the dark even when you pretend you’re not?
