As promised, albeit a little late, here is the follow-up list to the 10 Human Regrets as taken from the book, “The Leader Who Had No Title” by Robin Sharma. Hopefully, this will serve to inspire us to make sure we live our lives so that we end up with the 10 Human Victories and NOT the 10 Human Regrets.
The 10 Human Victories
1. You reach your end full of happiness and fulfillment on realizing that you are all used up, having spent the fullness of your talents, the biggest of your resources, and the best of your potential doing great work, leading a rare air life.
2. You reach your end knowing that you played at a concentrated level of excellence and held yourself to the most impeccable of standards in each thing that you did.
3. You reach your end in noisy celebration for having the boldness of spirit to have regularly confronted your largest fears and realized your highest visions.
4. You reach your end and realize that you became a person who built people up versus one who tore people down.
5. You reach your end with the understanding that, while your journey may not have always been a smooth one, whenever you got knocked down you instantly got back up, and at all times never suffered from any loss of optimism.
6. You reach your end and bask in the staggering glory of your phenomenal achievements along with the rich value you have contributed to the lives of the people you were lucky to serve.
7. You reach your end and adore the strong, ethical, inspirational and empathetic person you grew into.
8. You reach your end and realize that you were a genuine innovator who blazed new trails instead of following old roads.
9. You reach your end surrounded with teammates who call you a rock star, customers who say you’re a hero, and loved ones who call you a legend.
10. You reach your end as a true “leader without a title”, knowing that the great deeds you did will endure long after your death, and that your life stands as a model of possibility.
