Avoid the single biggest regret people have.

And that is not following through on what they are passionate about.

It is so easy to get stuck in life. we get comfortable and we don’t want to risk losing that. Time passes and there we are at the end of our lives wondering why it turned out to be so dull. There is no question that pursuing what you love is a risk. You might not be as well off or you might find out you didn’t love what you thought you did. What is for sure is that if you don’t pursue what you love, you will get to the end of your life and feel a sense of disappointment that you didn’t do it.

Take a baby step towards doing what you love today.

Don’t die wondering.

You are full of questions about what it would be like to do certain things. Do them and find out.

We don’t want to feel regrets because we failed to heed our ambitions. You will be inspired and energized even if you try something and it fails. It’s wondering whether we should or shouldn’t do something that leaves us feeling incomplete.

Go out and live!

You have not been sent here in a test or trial.

Everything counts.

What you do with your life matters. It matters to you, it matters to others, it matters to the whole world and what comes after. You need to take life seriously and step up to your responsibilities.

Your life is not a drill, make something meaningful happen today.

To be happier, start thinking more about your death

Ask yourself “Am I making the right use of my scarce and precious life?”

Most people understand at some level that they are wasting big portions of their lives on things that are not really important. Here is the secret to changing that.
The secret is not simply a resolution to stop wasting time, however. It is to find a systematic way to raise the scarcity of time to our consciousness. You need to be evaluating your activities in terms of them falling in the last period of your life.

What can you do now that really matters?

Grief is the price you pay for love, but that is a good thing.

If you lose something you love, the grief and pain can be almost unbearable. That is the time to be thankful for having something you cared about so much.

When you are dealing with a loss, let the pain in, but also use that time to reflect on how good your life was before the loss. This is the give and take in life, we have joy and then we have sorrow. Yes, you can choose to be a robot and never experience the pain of loss, but when it is all said and done, almost everyone would love again.

Go out and enjoy what you love now.

Getting closure will not end the pain of loss.

Getting closure doesn’t end pain, it just changes it.

Closure is a good start on the road to easing the pain of loss, but the pain will never fully go away. Yes, working through the stages of grief is also helpful, but contrary to what you have been told, the pain will never totally go away. So don’t think you are wrong to continue to feel the pain of loss long after these steps have occurred. Pain is your way of honoring or valuing what you lost. Let it be, feel it, don’t push it away, watch it change.

What pain of loss can you acknowledge is still with you?

Your time is running out.

Every day brings you closer to death. Are you using the time you have left wisely?

No one likes to think about dying, but the truth is that it is coming to each of us. Where we differ is what we do with the time we have. Few of us know when we will die so it is hard to plan for it. I recommend that you live your life to the fullest to the extent that you can. Some balance is needed as chances are that you will see many more days, Quitting your job, etc. will come back to haunt you. Plugging in “Achieving Happiness” to your goals is a reasonable step.

Next time someone says “have a good day”, make sure you do.
