Certainty creates boundaries, putting a box around what is possible and limiting your ability to create an alternative outcome. For instance, if an outcome seems certain, you have no incentive to try to change it.
With uncertainty, the boundaries have not been set, the outcome is unknown, and the possibilities are endless. In an uncertain situation, you have every incentive to try to create the kind of outcome you want to see.
This is why the status quo hates uncertainty and encourages us to seek the safety and comfort of certainty, thus preventing us from creating any kind of meaningful change.
Leaders are those who learn to embrace uncertainty because they know within it lies the potential to drive and shape the future.
