I wish I'd had the courage to live a life true to myself, not the life others expected of me - another of the top five regrets of the dying
The number one regret of the dying, apparently is this:
I wish I’d had the courage to live a life true to myself, not the life others expected of me.
This is, of course, in no way limited to your work.
But speaking of your life’s work for a minute, If you’re in a job, is that a job that allows you to live a life true to yourself?
If you’re an entrepreneur, is your startup helping you live a life true to yourself, or are you still doing things to please others?
Are you trying to please your investors, your father, your peers, your employees, your customers?
There’s nothing wrong with trying to please any of these, of course, but not at the expense of living a life true to yourself.
A Conscious Startup has to be one that’s 100% true to you. No compromise there.
It is possible. But there are powerful forces trying to push against you. It is your job to be strong, to trust your intuition, and stay true to yourself.
