A cancer diagnosis brings a spiritual journey for many. Regardless the prognosis or treatment, cancer patients and their loved ones are suddenly faced with the realization that time is not a limitless commodity.
But why wait for a medical diagnosis or another life altering event to force you to revisit your priorities? What story do you want to tell? Do you want people remembering you for hitting volume and profit targets or your thousands of “friends” on Facebook? Or would you prefer to live a life filled with stories that reflect your honesty, kindness, and integrity?
Life is precious.
Don’t be afraid to pivot or change priorities:
- Choose carefully who and how you spend your moments. Trying to make everybody happy is impossible.
- Be brave. Celebrate your life instead of wasting energy with those you don’t like or at a job simply going through the motions.
- Be selective. Allow your story to unfold based on the person you truly want to be remembered for.
Use the experiences you want close family/friends to remember, as your guide. Be honest with yourself about what you truly value versus simply what you want.
Two very different questions… Two very different outcomes.
