The biggest mistake we make in life is that we end up spending most of it trying to be who we are supposed to be instead of who we want to be.

True, it took me a long time to start living up to my expectations of me. Instead of living down to others expectations of me.
Agreed. Paying attention to one’s own capabilities and only having expectations of thyself if the best way to avoid disappointments 😉 Actually my grandfather taught me that.
and totally forgetting who we are in the process
Well said Werner. It is indeed the problem that gets acuter as we age and become more “successful.”
Yes. I am 58 and determined to spend the last 1/3rd of my life being and doing what I’ve always felt I should have been doing. Of course with age comes wisdom, experience and confidence. I’m ready to be me, build something big and have fun in the process.
It`s totally true! This is one of most commons regrets of the dying. (http://www.inspirationandchai.com/Regrets-of-the-Dying.html)
It’s not so easy to know who you really are, what you really stand for, and what you really want. It’s even harder to make the choices that demonstrate a commitment to those truths when those choices may cost you your relationships, your finances, your health, or your status. Those who achieve clarity and can follow through on their choices live exceptional lives. May you have an exceptional 2014!
