I recently listened to a book on tape that I hope will help you in this situation. The advise is really simple when it comes down to it and makes since but just as in life sometimes it is difficult to go forward with even those things that make since. The five things are: be true to yourself, leave no regrets, become love, live the moment, and give more then you take. The first one, be true to yourself means to follow you heart and go after what you want. The second one leave no regrets was about taking chances because the worst regrets are those regrets that start with “I wish I had” not “I shouldn’t have”. He put this in the perspective of living life as if you knew it was your last day to live. How often have you heard the question, what would you do if you knew you only had 24 hours before the end of the world? What would you want to do and who would you want to spend the time with? Are there things you would want to tell certain people? If you think of things or people then why not make it a priority now? His answer as to why people don’t is because of fear; fear of rejection and fear of failure. But he then argued, what is worse, to be rejected or to regret that you never tried? The fear of rejection and failure is powerful enough to prevent you from going after some of your dreams. I know I’m guilty of this myself and hope someday I can say I have pursued all of my dreams.
BTW the book on tape is “The five Secretes You Must Discover Before You Die” by John Izzo.
