Many people talk about their bucket list. They keep a mental (sometimes written) list of all the things they want to experience or achieve before they “kick the bucket”.
My brother, J.J., suddenly transitioned a couple of weeks ago, at the age of 42, so it got me thinking about living a life of no regrets. He was pretty good about checking things off his list, including booking a trip with me to Italy this fall.
Most of us are usually so focused on surviving what’s happening in our life this right now moment that we put off our bucket list stuff until we can get things handled now.
Well, you know how that goes. Life doesn’t slow down. New issues pop up that need handling.
But what if you peppered everyday life with the good stuff, instead of saving it for someday?
When I had kids I noticed how I pushed off traveling until they grew older. It didn’t feel good so I began taking short trips several times a year. That felt great. I’ve snuck in two trips to Maui since then and Italy is still happening in the fall (my mom will now be joining me, making this our 2nd trip to Italy together!).
And you can bet that I’ll be adding more time off from work this coming year.
But what about a living a life of no regrets in your business?
Instead of waiting for good fortune to come your way, what if you actively sought out amazing opportunities?
What if you…
- Charged more for your services?
- Stopped hiding your expertise?
- Created that awesome product or service?
- Paid yourself first?
- Took a month long vacation?
- Finished your website?
- Partnered with your idol?
- Hired an expert?
- Hired a team?
- Wrote your book?
- Spoke on a large stage?
What if you did something about it now?
Most people refer to regrets as things they wished they would’ve done but didn’t.
I’ve always been most fulfilled in my business when I did something that put me outside of my comfort zone. Why keep experiencing the same things over and over?
That can be nice, but is it juicy?
There is always more joy to be had. More unique experiences. A deeper connection to source energy. More fulfillment. More peace.
Write a bucket list for your business. Go nuts with it. Brainstorm for an hour or two.
Then create your plan to start living it. One step at a time.
When you give yourself fully to a joyful business experience, profits will follow in abundance.
