A pep talk with a twist
Apparently we are completely renewed on a cellular level every 7 to 10 years.
Have you ever felt as if your mind undergoes the same process?
I mean in the last decade or so, (I’m still quite young 🤔😆) I’ve experienced this mental urge to pull myself by the ear, give myself a bit of a kick in the back side, tell myself off for having cruised along and not effected the change I had promised myself I would do.
“Time waits for no man” my mind shouts. “Now you have to play catch up. AGAIN!”
I hear the pep talk. But it normally gradually fades away in life’s noise.
So this time I have decided to help the process: Ask some soul-searching questions.
Maybe this can help you too if you find that you need a pep talk on steroids.
I’m gonna be a bit morbid but bear with me. Here goes.
- On your deathbed, what regrets do you definitely not want to have?
- Or which one of your 5 senses would you miss the most if you lost them? Why
- Who or what would you miss the most? Why?
Is there a pattern? Someone or some goal? or the combination thereof?
These answers reveal what really matters to you.
Could it be that the other goals that you have been chasing are a distraction to what you should really go for?
Here’s the thing: right now, you and I are alive, in possession of our faculties and senses. This is a privilege we could lose overnight.
So while we have them, why waste them?
Let’s focus our energies on the right things.
It’s time to re-adjust course.Time to reflect, to re-define, then to rise!
