The biggest thing that we all live with in our lives is regret. My goal with this blog mostly is to get you to not live with any regrets. I don't want you all to grow old and sit around thinking to yourself, "what if I took a chance," or "what if I worked toward my passion?" As Gary Vaynerchuk says, "go spend time in a senior home and you'll hear so many older people sharing their regrets." Which is very true because I'm in my 30s and I regret not putting the work into this writing journey early on.
Granted for me, it's not too late and I figured out my purpose in life but I don't want it to happen to you. I want you all to be happy in what you're doing and to not live with regrets in your life. What happens to us is we live a life of comfort and we have to get out of that. We have to go out on a limb and go do something that makes us uncomfortable.
We spend most of our lives looking for the acceptance of others and feeling wanted and needed by others. We have our minds programmed from a young age that school is important and a college degree will make you successful in life. It doesn't apply to every field that you do (unless you're a lawyer, doctor, engineer, information technology) just to name a few. The reality is when you're blessed with a talent, most of it comes naturally to you and it's something that you were born to do.
At the end of the day, you don't want to get older, reflect back on your life and have regrets on things that you wished you did. Go work toward something that you love and are passionate about. At least if it doesn't workout, you can say that you went for it and don't have to wonder what if you did what could have been the outcome.
Be good everyone and go accomplish your goals!
