I received this the other day, and whilst there’s nothing new offered (so hardly a secret!), it is rather timely to reflect on such matters, especially given the time of year… so I share this with you…
I usually don’t pass along most of the stuff that I get via the Internet — it’s too much “stuff” and much of it is either negative or sappy (or both!). The following, however, made me think.
I do recommend that you take a look at this 4 minute flash movie, taken from (fellow Berrett-Kohler author) John Izzo’s bestselling book, The Five Secrets You Must Discover Before You Die
I try to live my life with no regrets — that, whenever possible, I say to another what needs to be said, so that, at the moment of my death (5 minutes or 5 decades from now), I will not be running around, wishing I had said X thing to Y person.
At the bottom line, each of us must ask ourselves: “Am I living my life through FEAR or through LOVE?” (Yes, love, as I write my umpteenth memo, plan the next series of meetings, or nurse last night’s mosquito bites.) And, by “love” I do NOT mean “nice” or “sweet”. Yes, love sometimes is nice and sweet — and sometimes it is like the total stranger in Uganda, putting his arm around my neck and yanking — pulling me out of the way of an oncoming truck. (And not sticking around for me to thank him.)
Am I living my fear, my anger, my frustration… or my love? It really is a choice.
