Surviving Uncertainty

No matter how much money you have, or how hard you try to protect yourself and your family with security, the fact remains that life is uncertain. Just ask anyone who’s ever suddenly lost a job, gotten a divorce, or gotten one of those dreaded middle-of-the-night family crisis phone calls. We cannot control all that happens to us. So what do we do about that?

If we’re smart, instead of railing against the uncertainty we cannot control, we work, instead, to become better masters at the art of living well in uncertain times. Because the good news is …

  1. Uncertainty doesn’t have to be a curse. It can be, instead, an opportunity for growth, change, and the start of a much better path in life.

  2. Living with uncertainty CAN be mastered. Adventurers do it every day.

  3. Most importantly… if you master the art of surviving—and thriving—in uncertainty, you will never have to fear it again. You will have the strength of a hero, able to survive and make the best of whatever comes your way.


How do you do that? This book can help.


Surviving Uncertainty: Taking a Hero’s Journey is an eloquent and practical guide to making the most of life’s planned and unplanned adventures. It combines entertaining storytelling, thought-provoking ideas, and helpful advice on surviving—and thriving—in uncertain times and circumstances … from a woman who knows something about challenge and uncertainty.

Twenty years ago, Lane Wallace quit a successful corporate career to become a pilot and adventure writer. Here, she applies what she’s learned in the school of adventure to the broader school of life.

Surviving Uncertainty: Taking a Hero’s Journey explores the possibilities uncertainty holds, offers tips how to navigate uncertain waters, and explains why getting launched onto a modern-day hero’s journey, while not entirely comfortable, may just be the best thing that ever happened to us.
