Bronnie Ware, an Australian nurse who spent several years caring for patients during the last 12 weeks of their lives, says the #1 regret of dying is “I wish I’d had the courage to live a life true to myself, not the life others expected of me.”
She adds “When people realise that their life is almost over and look back clearly on it, it is easy to see how many dreams have gone unfulfilled. Most people had not honoured even a half of their dreams and had to die knowing that it was due to choices they had made, or not made.”
The dictionary definition of courage is “mental or moral strength to venture, persevere, and withstand danger, fear, or difficulty.”. Courage isn’t just reserved for risking your life to save another, or to leave a high-paying job to start your own business, or to leave a toxic but secure long-term relationship. Courage can mean speaking up for yourself, feeling your emotions without numbing out with food, asking for help or deciding it’s time to try again to start taking care of your body.
And on this week’s podcast, we’re talking about courage. How to have more courage, more confidence to pursue your dreams, to overcome fear and to fully LIVE your life.
