You Don’t Have To Find Out You’re Dying… To Start Living

For those of you who have not heard Zach Sobiech’s story – take 22 minutes to see this mini-documentary.

It’s incredibly inspiring and moving.

Zach passed away last year on May 20, 2013, but his story lives on.

There’s a lot of things to take away from this video, but the primary message for me was:

“Start living.”

Don’t wait until something horrible happens when you start to realize that you have limited time on this earth.

There is no guarantee of tomorrow regardless of your health, wealth, family, education, etc.

You’ve got to live life to the fullest.

Whatever you’ve been waiting to do, start doing it.

What are your dreams?

What are your passions?

What are your goals?

What can you start today to move closer to your dreams?


Be Intentional


Imagine your life 20 years from now.

What is it that you think you’ll wish you would have done?

Whatever that is, it’s probably something that you’ve thought about doing before.

So what’s stopping you?

I think we tend to over-think and over-analyze to the point of inaction.

We do an internal cost-benefit analysis, but it comes to nothing, because it’s safer just to say – “I’ve thought about it, and I don’t think it will work.”

But what if it did work?

Or more likely, who really knows?  You certainly won’t until you try.

Live life with intentionality.

Successful people don’t just stumble across their dreams, they intentionally pursue them.

So what is your dream?

Are you pursuing it right now?

Don’t be one to regret 20+ years from now that you didn’t live your life to the fullest.
