If you were at the end of your life and you had only weeks (or even days) left to live, would you have any regrets?
According to Australian nurse Bronnie Ware, the most common regret that her dying patients expressed was:
I wish I had the courage to live a life true to myself, not the life others expected of me.
Think about that for a second…
The courage to live a life true to yourself.
That isn’t so easy to do sometimes is it?
Unfortunately sometimes living true to yourself comes at the expense of disappointing someone else. Whether it be a parent, friend, or significant other, not everyone is going to be 100% happy with every choice you make.
But here’s the thing – your life doesn’t belong to them. It belongs to you.
And yes, it does take courage to live your life on your own terms. It also requires you to have something very important – faith.
Faith that the dream that was placed in your heart is there for a reason.
It’s no accident that you have certain hopes, dreams and gifts. You are special, unique and unlike anybody else on this planet. And while you may share common interests with others, make no mistake. There is no one on this Earth exactly like you.
You are here for a reason.
You are here to fulfill your mission.
It’s your right (and your duty) to pursue your dreams.
So I encourage you, as scary as it may sometimes seem, always be true to yourself. And encourage the people you love to do the same.
If you are feeling ready to start living a life true to who you are, I’d love to support you. You can schedule your one on one Breakthrough Session with me HERE.
