I came across this article and had an ah-ha moment! Most of my clients are after these top 5 things right now!
It such a privilege for me to be able to continually coaching each person to become a better person of themselves and enjoy the ‘now’ moment & achieve what they really want in life.
So here are the top 5 regrets on their deathbed:
1.I wish I’d had the courage to live a life true to myself, not the life others expected of me.
A lot of people spend way too much times thinking about how and what other people think about them. I been helping a lot of people to realise that ‘they’ are doing the same back to you! In sessions, I unlocked their inner courage to step out and really enjoy being authentic to who they really are, appreciate the things they really want and in return they achieve what I call is “Authentic Self”.
2. I wish I didn’t work so hard.
As you know many of us wants money and the only way that most people think they can earn money is to trade your time for it. One thing that is absolutely true is Time does not equal Money. You can’t buy time (not at I know of right now).
What are the things you wanted to do right now and not able to because you’re tight up with works? Would that be hanging out with your kids? Your love ones? Mum and Dad? Best friends? or just simply do things that you love like Travel and explore the world!
3. I wish I’d had the courage to express my feelings.
I learnt this in the hard way.. Expressing my feeling is about letting my guards and barriers down. I had a very tough relationship before because I was pretending to be a different person than what I ‘feels’ in my gut! The results? Nasty lol.
There are two aspects of this..
1. You can tell when someone is lying, not being true to themselves or simply hiding something from you. Question is For what reason do you want to become the person you are not congruent with yourself.
2. You’re missing a deep connection with your important ones. When you are able to tell the other person your true feelings.. You’re connected to that person in a whole different level here! Have you had a conversation with someone that was Magical?
So go ahead be true to yourself and tell the world how awesome you really are!
4. I wish I had stayed in touch with my friends.
Some people say, Best Friends are always connected no matter how long you haven’t speak to each other. I personally think this is rather stupid idea to live in.
You only have so much hours a week (Average for Professionals is about 70 hours excluding work, commute & sleep) left to do the things they love to do!
What are you waiting for? Call up the friends you miss, want to forgive or simply just being them!
5. I wish that I had let myself be happier.
Don’t be hard to yourself .. Until you know what is “Happiness” means to YOU then you can start enjoy that more often.
Never ever use someone “Happiness blueprint” to live your life as this will make you more depress as it’s something you are not congruent within and ultimately that is not your definition of Happiness!
Now are you going to wait until you hit your deathbed or start living your life the way you want it?
My message to you is “If you were waiting for a sign, THIS IS IT!”
