Life Changing Events

I have a few profound life changing events in my life and I would like to share one of those events with you now. I already told you about a weekend I spent with a gang of personal trainers and how I came up with my philosophy and in that same article I mentioned Brene Brown.  That weekend had a huge impact on me but now I want to tell you about another weekend that was maybe even more profound.


It was during one of my weekends with Ken Larson. Ken Larson is an amazing coach that knows how to make a life changing impact on a persons life. He has amazing stories that are unbelievable if I told you about them but when you hear them first hand they are intense but believable. Ken has lived a life full of adventure and he uses his stories to help change lives for the better on a daily basis for a living.


He put on a course for a group of us personal trainers and I took it twice. There were 2 huge takeaways I want to share with you. They were both on how to make decision making easy for yourself. One of the ideas Ken taught us was how to create our mission, vision, and values. Ill get into that in next weeks article. The other idea I want to talk about this week is the top 5 biggest death bed regrets.


A nurse did a compilation from people on their death bed of what they regretted the most in life. Hearing these regrets changed my life. I don’t want to be on my death bed with regrets so I try my best to live by a philosophy that prevents me from ending up with the following top 5 death bed regrets.


1. I wish I’d had the courage to live a life true to myself, not the life others expected of me.

“This was the most common regret of all. When people realize that their life is almost over and look back clearly on it, it is easy to see how many dreams have gone unfulfilled. Most people had not honored even a half of their dreams and had to die knowing that it was due to choices they had made, or not made. Health brings a freedom very few realize, until they no longer have it.”

2. I wish I hadn’t worked so hard.

“This came from every male patient that I nursed. They missed their children’s youth and their partner’s companionship. Women also spoke of this regret, but as most were from an older generation, many of the female patients had not been breadwinners. All of the men I nursed deeply regretted spending so much of their lives on the treadmill of a work existence.”

3. I wish I’d had the courage to express my feelings.

“Many people suppressed their feelings in order to keep peace with others. As a result, they settled for a mediocre existence and never became who they were truly capable of becoming. Many developed illnesses relating to the bitterness and resentment they carried as a result.”

4. I wish I had stayed in touch with my friends.

“Often they would not truly realize the full benefits of old friends until their dying weeks and it was not always possible to track them down. Many had become so caught up in their own lives that they had let golden friendships slip by over the years. There were many deep regrets about not giving friendships the time and effort that they deserved. Everyone misses their friends when they are dying.”

5. I wish that I had let myself be happier.

“This is a surprisingly common one. Many did not realize until the end that happiness is a choice. They had stayed stuck in old patterns and habits. The so-called ‘comfort’ of familiarity overflowed into their emotions, as well as their physical lives. Fear of change had them pretending to others, and to their selves, that they were content, when deep within, they longed to laugh properly and have silliness in their life again.”


After seeing this list, I wrote all 5 out and memorized them. I was living a life pretty close to a philosophy that would prevent me from ending up with these regrets thankfully, but it was a great reminder to not get carried away with life so much I forget to enjoy it. I hope you incorporate this list of regrets in your philosophy as well. Next week I am going to tell you how to create your values which is a huge step to enhancing your life.
