“I wish I had the courage to live a life true to myself, not the one others’ expected of me.”
That’s the #1 regret of people on their deathbed, as told by Bronnie Ware in her article and book about the Top Regrets of the Dying. Ware worked in hospice care for several years, and the lessons and stories she received from people were poignant.
So, maybe you need to slow down, just a little bit…a reflect on the life and career you are living.
Are you on auto-pilot and keeping momentum going in the direction only others’ expect of you?
Pause, lay your foundation, and listen to the deep gut feeling with in you that is the True You.
Then move forward with conscious intention.
