4 Ways To Live A Life Of No Regrets
There is nothing more empowering than living a life of no regrets!
These days, there are almost ENDLESS opportunities for things we can do in our lives. We can choose where we want to live, where we want to travel, what we want to study, where we want to work, who we want to marry, and everything in between.
So, why are so many of us not choosing to live the life we REALLY want??
In a recent book called “The Top Five Regrets of The Dying”, palliative care nurse Bronnie Ware shares what she discovered to be people’s top 5 regrets in their last 12 weeks of life:
- “I wish I’d had the courage to live a life true to myself, not the life others expected of me.”
- “I wish I hadn't worked so hard.”
- “I wish I'd had the courage to express my feelings.”
- “I wish I had stayed in touch with my friends.”
- “I wish I had let myself be happier.”
What do these five regrets tell us..?
That too many people are not living life on their terms.
I don’t want this to be you… I want you to achieve your every dream and love every day of your life.
That’s why I’ve written this article for you today, giving you 4 empowering ways to start living a life of no regrets today:
1. Say ‘YES’ More Often
You might have watched (or heard of) the movie “Yes Man”, in which Jim Carrey plays a man called Carl who challenges himself to say ‘Yes’ to everything.
In doing so, Carl opens himself up to a whole lot of new opportunities, develops new skills which he would have never usually attempted, makes new friends, and overall becomes a far happier person.
Now, although this may just be a comedy movie, the film actually has a pretty powerful message.
By saying “yes” more often in your life, just like Carl, you will automatically open yourself to more opportunities.
Usually when we say “no” it is because we are trying to stay within our comfort zone.
And there’s nothing wrong with being comfortable… But logic tells us that if we do the same things, we will get the same results.
So in order to better your life, you need to start pushing your boundaries and expanding your experiences.
Trying new things will help you to grow as a person… And who knows, you may discover something that you really love along the way!
2. Remember That Failing Is Better Than Never Trying
Fear of failure is one of the biggest things that stops people from living a life of no regrets.
Right now, you may still be holding on to beliefs about it being ‘impossible’ for you to achieve certain things… and these limiting beliefs are holding you back from doing (or getting) what you truly desire.
It’s that fear of potentially failing that can keep us from even trying.
Can you think of something you always wanted to do but never tried, because you didn’t think you’d be good at it?
This has happened to most of us at some point in our lives.
But here’s the thing: Fear is something we create in our own minds.
In reality, when you brainstorm the worst possible outcomes of giving something a go, you’ll usually find that they aren’t all that bad.
And if you brainstorm the BEST possible outcomes, you’ll probably find that the good far outweighs the bad!
Even if something doesn’t work out, it’s far better to give it a go than to end up with regrets later about not trying.
Failure is always an opportunity to learn and to grow, and let’s face it – nobody masters EVERYTHING they try the first time.
So learn to embrace the fear, and recognize this is an essential part of living a life of no regrets.
(Promise, you won’t regret it!)
3. Live Life In The Present
Do you sometimes find yourself worrying about the future, or cringing about things that have gone wrong for you in the past?
Well, you can’t change the past, but you are 100% in control of what you choose to do today.
And the best way to make sure that you have happy memories to look back on, and a bright future ahead of you is to make the most of every day.
Living life in the present means CHOOSING to ‘zone in’ to what’s happening in the present moment, and ‘zone’ out from the 100 other things going on in the back of your mind.
So rather than daydreaming during a slow day at work, instead CHOOSE to find ways to make your workday more exciting and fulfilling.
Otherwise, you can end up living half of your life on ‘autopilot’… and this means you never get maximum satisfaction and enjoyment out of what you’re doing.
By living life in the moment, you will set yourself free to achieve your fullest potential.
4. Recognize Your Own Abundance
Have you ever noticed that people who are constantly worrying about money seem to only attract more hardship into their lives..?
And that single people who feel their life is nothing without being in a relationship seem to be constantly sabotaging their own love-life?
The problem is that these people are repelling the things that they want the most.
In order to attract what we want into our lives, we first need to remove our attachment to what we want and realize that we are ALREADY living with abundance.
Right now, you have everything you need.
You may want to increase your wealth, but realize that you are already wealthy. You have a roof over your head, food, clothing, and people who care about you.
Once you have realized that your desire for something is a WANT rather than a NEED, you will stop operating from a point of desperation, and start operating from a point of positivity and intention.
This will make you much more likely to attract what you desire!
So to help you become more aware of your own abundance, give yourself little daily reminders of all of the things in your life you have to be grateful for.
By doing this, you will naturally start to become a more positive and appreciative person… A person who lives life with no regrets!
