8 Things You’ll Regret at the End of Your Life—And What To Do To Prevent It (Part 3)

You carry in your heart God-inspired dreams that can make a positive difference in the world. But to bring them to pass, you must be intentional about pursuing them. When you don’t, your dreams never become reality—and that’s unfortunate.

At the end of your life, you’ll regret not pursuing your dreams more intently, more passionately. You’ll regret failing to take focused action towards your dreams. You’ll regret allowing yourself to be distracted by the minutia of life. You’ll regret giving in to procrastination and indefinitely deferring your dreams until it became too late to do anything about them. You’ll regret falling for your debilitating excuses.

You’ll regret giving up too soon on your journey towards your dreams. You’ll regret not persevering when it mattered the most. You’ll regret letting discouragement get the best of you when the going got tough. You’ll regret missing the opportunity of showing what you were made of in face of obstacles, challenges, and opposition.

This doesn’t have to be your story.

Take Action in the Direction of Your Dreams—Today

You’ve waited long enough. It’s time to take action. Do something. Do anything: anything that will bring you one step closer to your desired result. Take a step forward—even if only a small step. As the Chinese proverb says, “The journey of thousand miles begins with one step.” Begin your journey today. Keep taking steps forward, and before you know it, you will have traveled the distance.

Connect with Other Dreamers Who Are Also Action-Takers

Iron sharpens iron. When you are surrounded by people who are going after their goals and dreams, it motivates you to pursue your own. The reverse is also true: people who are going nowhere and doing nothing will discourage you from pursuing your dreams. Find like-minded who inspire you to do great things in the world.

Keep a List of Your Dreams

Dreams drive us. They push us to grow and give us something to look forward to (and work towards). Write your dreams down, and as you achieve them, check them off the list. Add to the list as you get new dreams. Having a list of goals and dreams is important.
