  2. Prashant Agarwal:

    There is a mere difference between uncertainty and insecurity. Once your fear coincides with insecurity, your decisions get manipulated with this fear of uncertainty. Or in other words, if you allow these feelings of insecurity and uncertainty to reside in you, they often lead to cause fear. You are thereby deceived by this fear which will provide discomfort in your real-life situations. We can eliminate this fear within us by believing in our capabilities. If you learn to embrace this uncertainty, life would rather become an adventure. If you want to succeed or accomplish your goals, then you need to make sure that you don't allow this illusion of fear to mislead you or take control over your mind and soul.
