Hey Refusers, here are the top 5 regrets of the dying. All credit goes to Bonnie Ware -- an Austrailian nurse who worked with terminally ill patients. She asked hundreds of patients “what do they regret most?” Then, she distilled themes and found these were the TOP FIVE things. Here they are:

1. “I wish I’d had the courage to live a life true to myself, not the life others expected of me” “This was the most common regret of all. When people realize 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 honored even a half of their dreams and had to die knowing that it was due to choices they had made, or not made. Health brings a freedom very few realize until they no longer have it.”

2. I wish I hadn’t worked so hard LOTS of male patients said this as top one.Are we here to do as much as we can? Are we here to BE as much as we can?

3. “I wish I’d had the courage to express my feelings” Don’t hold it in. Again more common with men she worked with.

4. “I wish I had stayed in touch with my friends” Don’t need 50k friends! Why are we so “connected” but disconnected on social media. Need quality over quantity. Get more from 3-4 close friends than 30+ friends. Okay to simplify here.

5. “I wish I had let myself be happier Is happiness is a choice? If I have ______ then I can feel ______ = A MINDSET!We want things so we can have feelings. Give yourself those feelings, allow yourself to FEEL the win. Personal story: Remember when I made $12,00 in a single week, VBA course. I worked my ASS off for that - soon as I got the check and it was in my bank…. nothing. No feeling at all. Felt exact SAME! Realized that it was a choice.
