If you had the opportunity to fast forward to your last days and then to look back at your life, what do you think your biggest regrets would be?
I recently read an article about an Australian nurse who worked in palliative care looking after patients in the last twelve weeks of their lives. When asking her patients this question, these were the top five answers she received consistently:
1. I wish I had the courage to live a life true to myself, not the life others expected of me.
2. I wish I hadn’t worked so hard.
3. I wish I had the courage to express my feelings.
4. I wish I had stayed in touch with my friends.
5. I wish that I had let myself be happier.
Its interesting to note that making more money, owning a bigger house or going on that lavish overseas holiday does not feature in the list. Yes, money is important but simply having more is not and should not be the goal in itself.
We should all make more of an effort to take time out of our busy schedules to do the things that truly add value to our lives. Worrying about our finances should not feature on this list.
Today we are very excited to announce the launch of our new brand and name ‘Onelife Wealth Management’ which will be replacing the name ‘Growth Point Financial’. Our focus remains the same which is to partner and help guide you through important financial decisions -allowing you the space to focus on what is truly important to you in your life.
Follow your heart, live your passion… let us worry about the rest.
Daniel and the Onelife team
