You never know how much time you have left. I don’t mean to sound morbid. But because of the best way to live life is by living each day to the fullest. To get the most you can out of life so you will have no regrets.
Get the Most Out of Life by Asking Yourself 7 Questions
1. Who do You Love and What are You Doing About it?
Life is short and time is precious. You never know how much time you get with the ones that you love.
We can take the ones we love the most for granted because we don’t want to dwell on the fact that our loved ones can die at any time and so can we. Because of this, it is important to make the most of the time that we have with our loved ones.
To say I love you. To spend time with them. And if you aren’t spending time with the people that you love, change that. If you are holding a grudge against a family member, do what you need to let it go and reconcile.
If you have done something that has hurt a family member, ask for forgiveness. If you haven’t seen someone in awhile, make arrangements to spend time with them.
2. Am I Doing Something that Matters?
There is a difference between doing work and doing work that really matters. This doesn’t have to refer to your day job, although it definitely can. If you can find a job that is meaningful to you and matters. Not one that is just busy-work, then that will lead to a fulfilling life.
But it could refer to filling up your days with fluff, doing stuff that doesn’t make much difference either in your own life or in the life of others. And that is sadly a waste of your life.
3. How am I Helping Others?
You get the most out of life when you give to others. And by giving to others you gain a lot in return. Giving to others could be giving of you time, your talents and/or your money.
What have you done lately for someone else to help them out? Have you been kind and compassionate? If you aren’t doing anything to help others, then this is a great time to figure out something you can do for someone else and put it into action.
4. Am I Fighting for My Dream or is Fear Stopping Me?
Is there something that you have always wanted to do? Maybe something from when you were a child but you gave it up as unrealistic or that people around you said was unrealistic?
Maybe it is something you want to do, but are afraid of failing? What fears are stopping you? What would be the worst thing that could happen if you overcame your fears and pursued your dream?
If you are already pursuing your dream, then you are doing awesome. Keep pushing and fighting.
5. How Can I Step Out of My Comfort Zone Today?
If you never step outside of your comfort zone and push your boundaries, then you aren’t getting the most out of life or living life to the fullest.
So, each day try to step outside of your comfort zone. It doesn’t have to be anything huge. Even if it is something small, or rather seems small to someone else, but doesn’t to you.
6. How Can I be a Better Person?
Everyday I try to be the best version of myself that I can be. I don’t beat myself up when I am less than perfect, impatient, selfish, or not as helpful as I would like to be. I just try to be a little bit better day by day.
7. What am I doing to Live a Life Full of Passion, Energy, and Health?
Work on being as healthy as you can so you will have the energy necessary you need in life. Living a healthy life will give you more energy in life. With this new refound energy you can direct it into something that you are passionate about. If you haven’t found you passion (or passions), start looking.
