Here’s a Gentle Reminder That You Will Die One Day

Here’s a Gentle Reminder That You Will Die One Day

One truth that we all know is that one day you will die. All of us will die at some point. And while it’s a sad truth, what’s sadder is that not everyone is able to make the most of their time on there.

According to a study, many people lay on their deathbed with regrets. Regrets about bad decisions they made in the past or living a life that someone else gave them. The list of regrets could go on for a while.

But the beauty of life is that you can still do something about it all.

Living Life to the Fullest

Lifehack’s CEO, Leon has written an article about how to live life to the fullest. Living life to the fullest comes down to improving the six aspects of your life:

  • Physical health – eating better, exercising, strengthening yourself mentally too.
  • Family and relationship fulfilment – the friends that we make and retain along the way.
  • Work and career prosperity – having a job you love and encourages growth.
  • Spiritual wellness – being able to tap into a world beyond logic.
  • Mental strength – being able to focus, have drive and discipline.
  • Wealth and money satisfaction – living within your means.

Having a balance of those six things is essential to living life to the fullest. However, life often demands more from us in order to achieve those things. At Lifehack, we teach people how to grow the following eight core skills in order to fulfil all the aspects of life:

  • Self-empowerment – having motivation and confidence with what you want to achieve. Ensure your purpose is made clear and know how to stay positive in the moment of adversity.
  • Self-control – setting clear goals and plans for yourself. Build constructive habits and routines that support these goals.
  • Renewable vitality – being physically fit and healthy and getting proper sleep.
  • Mastery over emotions – reframing negativity with positive actions you can take.
  • Conscious communication – understand other people’s ideas and express and deliver thoughts and feelings clearly.
  • Smart focus – completing tasks in the most effective and efficient manner you can.
  • Learning and adaptability – you want to be able to learn and adapt to any knowledge or skill.
  • Constructive thinking – having a clear and uncluttered mind.

Living life to the fullest is not easy, but as long as you keep in mind that one day you’re going to die, you will not waste another second in life. Though as human beings, we sometimes forget about what to live for when we’re too busy surviving. A gentle daily reminder would be nice for us all.

Your Gentle Reminder – One Day You’re Going To Die

We recently uncovered the company – more specifically a Youtube channel – OLOGY.

The purpose of the channel is to provide gentle reminders that one day you will die. But from that information, the channel is going out of its way to teach people about three core aspects: mindfulness, re-invention, and play.

From those aspects, it provides reminders to make every moment count for something. That everything that you are doing is progressing yourself in some way shape or form.

OLOGY is running a Kickstarter campaign that pledges to deliver pins, pendants, and visual wall art to remind people that life is fleeting and that it’s important to make the most of it.

    Vita Pendant

    The proceeds will be going towards this project to make it the best that it could be. And it’s had an overwhelming amount of support, raising over $22,000 at the time of writing this – having reached its target donation goal within the first five hours of it launching.

      Life Visualized Wall Art

      These three tools are simple but invaluable as the constant reminder that you will die will push you to make better decisions overall.

        Know yourself pin

        If you know that you will die eventually, it makes sense that you will strive to make the most of what you’ve got, to make smarter decisions about who you spend time with and what you’ll do every day. Having these little reminders only encourages that way of thinking.

        Furthermore, these tools will be more helpful once the channel starts expanding and developing. Thanks to many people’s support for this, the Youtube channel will only grow and be able to provide invaluable information. Even if the content isn’t coming from trained professionals, the fact this information is coming from everyday people has a level of authenticity and relatedness to it.

        If you also want a gentle reminder to seize every moment in life, back this campaign as these simple tools can help you now and in the future. They’re well worth the investment as the pendants, wall art, and pins are worth more than the donation you spent to receive them. Though you’ll need to be acting quickly as donations will close on February 1st, 2021.

        If you want to learn more about OLOGY, take the time to watch some of the videos posted by this channel in the future. You’ll receive plenty of information on how to live a better life and to make every moment count.

        There Is More to Life Than  ____________

        There Is More to Life Than  ____________

        I decided to leave the title of this article open ended, because I’d like you to fill in what words best fit that blank. We’re all unique individuals from different walks of life, and in different stages of life; so, that sentence will have a different meaning for each of us.

        If you’re a busy working professional, why are you working in the job that you have now?

        Is it because it’s something you’re passionate about and brings you a lot of satisfaction? Or, is it because you studied that in college and just found a job that hired you for those skills? Perhaps it’s because of the money that you’re earning, or know you can earn down the line?

        What if you’re about to retire? You’ve got, say, 2 to 3 more years before you hit your ‘deadline’ for retiring. Have you done all that you’ve wanted to do in the past 30-40 years? Any unfulfilled goals or dreams? Are you happy with the outcome of your life to date, all the decisions and/or risks that you’ve made thus far?

        I’m sure many of us started working after college in hopes of earning a good living–to be financially stable and able to afford the ability to experience and do things that we love. We start establishing a career, and with time, tick off boxes on our bucket or ambition list. As you look back on the last couple of years, just how much of your time has been spent doing things that you enjoy and love–the things that give you a great sense of fulfillment and meaning?

        Have you become a slave to the economy, a slave to your work, or a slave to your kids? Or have you found a balance between work and pleasure?

        When is Enough Ever Enough?

        Sadly, many of us live to work.

        Realists would argue that if you truly want to work to live, you still need the finances to back that up. No money no talk. That is how the world runs today. So if you don’t earn or make enough dough, it’s hard to truly enjoy life; it’s hard to be happy without money.

        Advertising

        So, in this quest to provide just that, many of us end up spending our whole lives pursuing wealth and a life of status and material wants. But, is it ever enough? Is there such a thing as having too much money? And, at what expense?

        If you’re not sure about the expense you may have been paying already, take our Life Assessment for free and find out. After taking the assessment, you’ll get a report of your life’s analysis and understand how you’re balancing life so far. Take the free assessment here.

        Many wealthy entrepreneurs, millionaires and even billionaires have come to agree that money doesn’t bring you all the happiness in the world. It’s good to have, but it doesn’t truly satisfy all desires. There comes a point where you would have ‘had it all’ and still feel a sense of emptiness: an empty void that needs to be filled, not with money or material possessions.

        So the question is then, what more is there to life if not for financial stability, status or material possessions?

        How do we make work a part of life instead of having it consume our life entirely? Perhaps we need to go back to look at the word life itself.

        What is Your Purpose in Life?

        What is the nature of life? What does life mean to you? Is there a purpose?

        If we seek jobs, all we will find are jobs. But if we have a sense of purpose in how we are productive; if we seek a calling, then we will find more than a job. We will find our contribution to humanity and we will find more to life. Would you agree?

        Research has shown that having purpose and meaning in life increases overall well-being and life satisfaction, improves mental and physical health, enhances resiliency, enhances self-esteem, and decreases the chances of depression. So it should be noted that to be happy in life isn’t always enough, because happiness is a surge of emotions that does not last. Instead, it’s more important to find and have meaning in life.

        Advertising

        Meaning is not only about transcending the self, but also about transcending the present moment. While happiness is an emotion felt in the here and now, it ultimately fades away, just as all emotions do; positive affect and feelings of pleasure are fleeting. The amount of time people report feeling good or bad correlates with happiness, but not at all with meaning.

        Have You Been Going on a Wild Goose Chase?

        Ironically, the single-minded pursuit of happiness is leaving people less happy. “It is the very pursuit of happiness, that thwarts happiness”, according to Viktor Frankl, a famous Austrian Neurologist and Holocaust survivor. Going back to the common example of pursuing riches in order to be happy is exactly what makes many so unhappy.

        So again, look at the statement “There is more to life than ______.”

        Have you answered it meaningfully? If you’ve read on this far, and are now wondering how to take that first step to figuring out what your true purpose is in life, fret not; I’m here to help you reframe your mind and actions, so that you can embark on a journey of finding true meaning to your life.

        Everything that you can do and accomplish in life are bounded by the Life Multipliers. These are the true essentials needed to achieve excellence. They’ll put you on a path that gives great meaning and satisfaction in life. And, the best thing of all? They already exist in each of us. We just don’t always make the most of it, or sometimes we aren’t even aware of the power that each of these skills have to help us in life.

        On it’s own, each skill is unique and can help you through different stages of life, or problems. But as a whole set, these 7 Cornerstone Skills will give you full transformation over any situation. No matter what phase of life you’re in, what you’re striving to achieve, or what feel you’re lacking, your pursuit of meaning in life will be much faster when you’re able to make use of not one, not two, but all the Life Multipliers.
