How To Be 10% Braver – Be A Positive Disruptor

Ambitious Resilience, Change & Reinvention

It’s not HIStory, HERstory or THEIRstory – it’s yours. 

Bronnie Ware spent most of her career working as a palliative care nurse taking care of those in their final days of life. In her book ‘The Top Five Regrets of The Dying’, she describes the clarity and powerful mindset shifts people have when facing their own mortality.

When asked about regret, the same five things came up again and again:

  1. I wish I’d 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’d 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.

Now that’s a fantastic toolkit for positively disrupting your own life! 

You could carry on down the same road hoping things will change of their own accord. You could choose to tap your toes along to those all-time greats of ‘That’s just the way things are’, ‘People like me don’t get to do things like that’ and the classic ‘I’m not good enough’…

Or you could use this list to do a premortem to your current way of being.

Whenever anyone tells me they found my keynote inspirational I reply ‘Great! What have I inspired you to do?’

It’s true that thinking and feeling tend to come before the actual doing. Change is hard and is either bright on by inspiration or desperation – in my case it was often the latter until I got more intentional about what I want my life to look like for the other end of the lens.

The Belgian government are so concerned about the damage caused by a lack of work life balance they’ve made it illegal for federal workers to deal with emails outside of working hours. That’s the kind of positive disruption that says ‘Oi, you know that tick box attitude you had to your pre-pandemic wellbeing? Yeah, well it’s time to flush it down the toilet!’

What does Bronnie’s Ware list inspire you to do? One small change now has an enormous impact one year from now on your relationships and your sense of fulfilment.
