No regrets

Discover what individuals regret most in their final moments and the transformative lessons that can reshape your approach to life and success.

In this article, we delve into the insights of Bronnie Ware, a former palliative care professional and bereavement counselor. She authored “The Top Five Regrets of the Dying,” a book that explores what individuals regret in their final days and the lessons we can draw from their experiences.

The pursuit

One prominent takeaway from Ware’s work is that, as busy entrepreneurs and managers, we often become consumed by the pursuit of material possessions. We invest substantial time and energy accumulating wealth, homes, cars, degrees, and other external assets. Ironically, this chase is characterised by a dual nature: we lust after what we lack and fear losing what we have acquired. This relentless pursuit often leaves us unfulfilled and laden with regrets.

What we learn from the regrets

The wisdom distilled from these “five regrets” leads us inward, towards our inner world. While terms like self-love and mutual affection may seem abstract, many of us recognize a deep need for them. Unfortunately, our lives are often shaped by principles and beliefs that hinder our inner growth and contentment. Here are some of these inner challenges:

  • I must work hard and do my best because otherwise I won’t be seen
  • I must to be strong to conquer what I am entitled to
  • I must be liked or I will be excluded
  • I must be perfect because failure means rejection
  • I must hurry up, before someone else takes over
  • I must hide my emotions – it is a sign of weakness
