Hello and welcome, my name is Melanie Bundock
and I want to help you start living the life of your dreams.
I love an inspirational quote and this quote by C.S. Lewis is one of my favourites. Very often we get to a stage in life and it is easy to think, is this all there is? I had such hopes and ambitions when I was younger, I always wanted to be an actor/pianist/have my own business/ write a book etc,etc – delete as applicable.
But the doubts set in, I’m too old, I didn’t go to University, I’m too fat, what’s the point in even trying I am bound to fail…
Let’s face it, life gets in the way of your dreams and ambitions, very often we fall into a job, and 10 years later, we think to ourselves” how the hell did I get here? I didn’t plan on doing this when I was a child”.
In her book The Top Five Regrets of the Dying, Bronnie Ware, an Australian nurse who worked in palliative care, found that there were common regrets that people reaching the end of their lives shared. At the top of the list was, “I wish I’d had the courage to live a life true to myself, not the life others expected of me”, Ware expands on this, “This was the most common regret of all. 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. Health brings a freedom very few realise, until they no longer have it.”
So what now? First you have to identify what that goal is, goals can be big and bold, and they can even scare us a little, but goals can be smaller too, it could be starting a new hobby, learning a new skill, visiting a dream destination. Or it could be a health goal, reaching a target weight, starting a new exercise programme, or even doing something like run a marathon or taking part in a triathalon. Time for another quote,
“Setting goals is the first step in turning the invisible to the visible” – Tony Robbins
