The first secret that made me insist on making my dream come true was a very simple thing; a post on Facebook! The post was questioning the one thing I would regret on my deathbed that ‘I didn’t do’.
This post reminded me with a lesson I read for Robin Sharma, author of the best selling book ‘The Monk who sold his Ferrari.” His lesson was ‘Connect to your mortality.’ Unlike what most people think, remembering that we will die is an excellent incentive for us to live. Because we truly realise the value of things from its opposites. We appreciate our health more when we get sick for example.
Moreover, I remembered after reading this post the 2nd habit of highly effective people of Stephen R . Covey ‘Begin with the end in mind.’ I thought of my 80th birthday and the life I wish to celebrate that I had lived as Covey advised. Writing a novel was my dream that I would regret if I hadn’t done, that I sincerely wished to live and that I wished to celebrate at the end.
What’s your dream? You too consider these three points shared by Facebook, Sharma and Covey.
