Live...Before You Die
It's important to realize that someday you will not be here. Someday, it will all be over. Someday, your health won't let you do what you have always wanted in life. These are the facts and they are undeniable.
I once read an article about a person's experience as she went around to different hospices and questioned the patients about their regrets in life. The article found a common theme among the dying. It stated that the number one regret people shared was "I wish I'd had the courage to live a life true to myself, not the life others expected of me."
In summary, when people realize their life is almost over, it was very easy to see how many dreams have gone unfulfilled. Most people interviewed had not accomplished even half of their dreams and were going to die knowing it was due to the choices they made (or didn't make).
The article cleverly highlighted that the moment you lose your health, it is all too late. Health provides freedom. And freedom is living.
I am constantly reminded, by my mom, to live each day as if it's my last good day. Seeing her plagued with health problems over the years has prompted me to take chances, risk security, and go after what I want without hesitation. Someday, all my drive and determination won't be enough to beat the effects of time. I must do it now before health is taken from me.
In a recent survey of 1,600 adults at the University of Phoenix, roughly 63 percent of people dreamed of starting their own business someday. In a related survey of 65 year olds, 1 out of 5 people (that wanted to start a business) actually did in their lifetime. That means 80% of people didn't get to cross that one item off of their bucket list.
Any regret a person has on their deathbed is very sad, but starting a business is a joy that I believe more people should experience. Not only does it teach people their own strengths, it also teaches people how the world really operates. Both are valuable lessons that are immeasurable.
When I meet with future business owners, the biggest fear they share is: the fear of the unknown. And that is rightfully, so. There is quite a lot that goes into starting a business. However, in a similar fashion to hiring a fitness trainer, it's a lot less scary when you are guided by someone that knows the best way to your desired destination.
At Dream Starters, we want to decrease the percentage of people that live with the regret of not starting a business. Everyone has a dream.
