THE BUCKET LIST
Up until 2007, with Morgan Freeman and Jack Nicholas’ movie,
The Bucket List, people just had a running list in their heads of
things that they wanted to do after they retired, or before they
died, or ‘kicked the bucket’.
WHY WAIT TO
This idea of freakin’ waitin’ to do the things one
wants to do in life until they’re standing (or close
to standing) on the welcome mat
of Death’s door…well, it’s ludicrous!
When nearly all people who reach their deathbed have as
their biggest regret that they lived how everyone thought
they should rather than the way they truly wanted, why
then would good, intelligent, beautiful souls decide to risk
waiting to really live?
LET’S FACE IT
There are no guarantees on how many
tomorrows any of us have. Yet nearly all of
us regret that there was more we wanted
to have done with our lives .
Sure, there might be real time obstacles.
But, there are those who overcome these
obstacles to really truly L-I-V-E. They had the
COURAGE to stand up to those ‘Yeah but’s”
playing over and over in their heads.
IS FEAR HOLDING
Fear of being judged for stepping outside of the norm
Fear of falling short
Fear of not being “enough” against some unknown measuring stick
Fear of being too old/too young
LET’S BE HONEST
We ALL have fears, silent ones that plague us, that
hold us back, that have us live smaller than who we
TORPEDOESBut what sets us apart from those who just punch in
and out of life, is when we decide to Damn the
Torpedoes, to just fuckin do it, to get hellbent on
figuring out how to do it, whatever that IT is.
OTHER SIDE OF FEAR
Rare opportunities, fortunate twists of fate, breathtaking
experiences, and legendary, life-changing moments are all
found on the other side of FEAR.
EAT AN ELEPHANT
Well how do they say that you eat an elephant?
Right – one bite at a time. You start small, one step at a
time, like in your own backyard, in your normal day
RECLAIM YOUR LIFE
IN 3 STEPS
Fight Fear With
Fly Your Freak
Soak Up The
Are you afraid of your life staying the same?
Are you afraid of future regrets of the decisions you make
today? Most people try to stuff their fears or hide from
them like ostrich head in the sand.
Make it bigger, hairier, scarier, badass-er, than your fears of failing, of
being different, of not being enough. When you fear what didn’t
happen more than what could happen…then you’ve got some serious
jet fuel! Yeah – its kind of a mind screw, but damn, does it work!
it’s time to get out there and find your fun! Look for
opportunities to step outside of your norm, your routine,
and to do, see, be things different than you did yesterday.
Stretch. Go wild.
Find people too that support you on this
journey – people that say you ‘CAN’ vs those
who say you ‘CAN’T.’
EXPERIENCE THE NEW
When you step out of your routine, your comfort zone
and find adventures, sure you’ll have fun and more
interesting conversations with family and friends, but your
biggest reward will be the CONFIDENCE that builds with
each new experience
SEE THE POSSIBLE
This renewed confidence will help you see the possible in
the former ‘impossible.’ You will believe that IT can indeed
be done; whatever that IT that has been itchy at you
