No one wants to admit that they are going to die someday. In fact, we all sort of live our lives fooling ourselves that our days are numbered. Even though it sounds morbid, having that at the forefront of your mind will help you live a life of no regrets. Here are 21 regrets you do NOT want to have in your life:

没有人愿意承认他们有一天会死去。事实上,我们都在过着自欺欺人的生活,其实我们的日子屈指可数。时刻记住这一点听起来有些病态,但这将使你的生活没有遗憾。接下来是你不希望在自己的生活中出现的21个遗憾:

1.Not taking action on your dreams.

没有为实现梦想而行动

Most of us had dreams when we were kids. But as we got older, reality hits and tends to drown out the vision of what we really wanted in the first place. Think about this: there are many, many people in the world who are making their dreams come true. So why not you? You should be one of them.

大多数人在孩提时代都拥有梦想。但随着我们渐渐长大,现实往往会遮盖我们对梦想的期盼。想一想吧:世界上有许多许多人正在实现自己的梦想。所以你为什么不这样做呢?你应该是其中之一。

2. Letting excuses or people derail you from your dreams.

让借口或他人耽搁你的梦想

Don’t let yourself come up with “excuses.” Excuses are not reasons. There is a difference. Reasons are valid, excuses are not. And don’t listen to anyone else’s negativity either. Make up your own mind and go for it!

不要给自己找“借口”。借口不是理由,他们是有区别的。理由是有效的,借口则不然。也不要听从任何人的负面意见。自己做决定,并为之奋斗。

3. Waiting for the “perfect” time.

等待“完美”时机

“The perfect time” is nothing but a myth! That’s not to say that there are times when you should not act immediately – like waiting to travel the world if you are drowning in debt. But generally speaking, now is all we have. So take a step toward your goal now. Tomorrow isn’t guaranteed for any of us.

“完美时机”只不过是一个神话!这并不是说,有些时候你不应该立即行动–例如你在负债累累时还等着周游世界。但总的来说,当下是我们所拥有的一切。所以现在就要朝你的目标迈进。任何人都不能指望明天。

4. Not appreciating your health.

不珍惜健康

Here’s something I bet you can relate to: you never think about your health until you get a bad case of the flu. Am I right? It’s usually at those points where we think, “Why didn’t I appreciate feeling good?” Well, remind yourself to appreciate it every day, not just when you feel under the weather.

我打赌你一定预见过这样的事:直到得了重感冒,你才开始思考健康问题。我说对了吗?通常到了这些时候我们才会想,“为什么健康的时候我没有珍惜?”提醒自己每天都要珍惜健康,而不是在身体不舒服时才这么做。

5. Not helping others enough.

没有尽可能帮助别人

It’s easy to be selfish. Heck, our world practically encourages it! (unfortunately). But think how your actions affect other people. Take a look at the people around you and go out of your way to help them. I’m sure you would appreciate it if they did that for you, so live by the Golden Rule and go out of your way to help others.

自私是很容易的。见鬼,我们的世界实际上鼓励它!(很不幸)。但是想想你的行为会如何影响他人吧。看看你周围的人,尽可能的去帮助他们。可以肯定的是,如果他们这么对你,你会很感激。所以按这个黄金法则生活吧,做个乐于助人的人。

6. Shying away from taking risks.

不去冒险

This is a tough one for a lot of people, myself included. But there is a difference between taking a calculated risk and an uncalculated risk. Take calculated risks. Think about the benefits and costs and then make an informed decision. Remember great risk can lead to great reward.

这对很多人来说,包括我自己,都是一件艰难的事情。但是有备之险和盲目风险是有区别的。面对有备之险吧,综合考虑收益和代价之后作出明智的决定。记住,风险大,回报也大。

7. Not making your loved ones smile and laugh enough.

没有给你爱的人带来足够的欢笑

This one is self-explanatory. Our loved ones are the most important thing in the world… or at least they should be. So have fun with them. Smile and laugh… a lot!

这是不言自明的。我们爱的人是世界上最重要的事,或者至少应该是这样。所以和他们多相处,尽可能让他们开心吧!

8. Giving up before you reach success.

在成功到来之前放弃

In our culture we all expect to become an overnight sensation like Justin Beiber. But guess what? In the real world it doesn’t work like that. Be patient in waiting for success. It will come.

在我们的文化中,大家都希望能像贾斯汀•比伯一样一夜成名。但真实的世界并非如此。耐心等待成功。它会来的。

9. Not spending enough time with positive people.

与积极的人相处过少

Dump the “Energy Vampires” in your life! You know who I’m talking about. The people who drain you, suck you dry, and give nothing back. Instead, surround yourself with positive people.

甩掉你生活中的“耗人精”吧。你知道我说的是谁。他们消耗你、榨干你,而且不会给你带来任何回报。相反,尽量让身边多一些积极的人。

10. Hurrying through life so that you don’t appreciate the little things.

脚步匆匆,错过生活的小细节

Busy, busy, busy. This is the theme of the world today. Not that staying busy isn’t fun. But don’t stay so busy that you lose focus on the important things in life. As the saying goes, “stop to smell the roses.”

忙是当今世界的主题。并不是说忙这件事不好玩。但是太忙会使你忽视生活中重要的事情。就像俗话说的那样,“停下来闻闻玫瑰花香吧。”

11. Not seeing the world and all its glory when you’re young and healthy.

没有趁年轻看遍世间繁华

If you have the money to travel (and you like doing it), get out there and see the world now! There are so many other fascinating cultures to explore, so just go do it!

如果你有钱可以旅游(而且你喜欢旅游),走出门去看看世界吧。世界上有那么多精彩的文化等你去探索,出发吧!

12. Worrying too much and appreciating too little.

担心有余,珍惜不足

“Worrying is like praying for what you don’t want to happen,” (Robert Downey Jr.) It puts negative energy out to the universe. Instead, focus on what you do have, not what you don’t have.

“担心就像为你不希望发生的事情祈祷。”(小罗伯特•唐尼) 它会释放负能量。相反,关注你拥有的东西,而不是你没有的。

13. Not planning for your future.

没有未来规划

Some people wander aimlessly in life and go where the wind blows them. Hey, this might be fun for some people, but it doesn’t get you toward a goal of your choosing. So figure out what you want and then set your ship on a course toward achieving it.

一些人漫无目的的生活,随风逐流。这对一些人来说也许是有趣的,但这并不能带你走向你期待的目标。所以找出你想要什么,并朝着它扬帆起航吧。

14. Not learning from your mistakes.

不从自己的错误中吸取教训

No one wants to admit that they make mistakes. But honestly, I don’t believe in mistakes. To me, they’re all learning opportunities. So make sure that you actually learn from them. If you don’t, you will end up repeating them over and over and not improving your life.

没有人愿意承认他们会犯错。但老实说,我并不相信错误。对我来说,错误其实都是学习机会。所以确保你从错误中有所学习。如果没有,你将一遍又一遍地重复已经犯过的错误,根本无法改善自己的生活。

15. Working too much.

工作太多

Going along with #14, if you are spending too much time at the office and not enough time with your loved ones, you may regret it someday. Even if you love your work and become engrossed in it, don’t forget to come up for air and spend quality time with people.

和第十四条一样,如果你在办公室呆的时间太多,而没有时间与你爱的人相处,总有一天你会后悔的。即使你热爱并全神贯注于你的工作,也不要忘了呼吸新鲜空气,保证与人相处的休闲时间。

16. Not taking responsibility for your own life.

不为你自己的生活承担责任

Your life today is a result of all the choices you made in the past. So don’t blame others, and put yourself in the driver’s seat for your future. Own your life and your choices.

你今天的生活都是自己过去选择的结果。所以不要埋怨他人,自己把控自己的未来。掌握自己的生活和选择。

17. Listening to other people’s opinions before your own.

让别人的意见盖过自己的想法

It’s easy to listen to other peoples’ loud opinions. Sometimes that’s easier than listening to our own inner voice and intuition. But if you ignore your gut feeling, I almost guarantee you’ll eventually end up regretting it.

听从别人大声嚷嚷的意见是件很容易的事。有时比听从我们内心的声音和直觉还要简单。但是如果你忽视自己的直觉,我能保证你最终总会后悔的。

18. Not enjoying your children’s childhood.

不享受儿女的童年

Any parent will tell you that it’s not easy to raise kids. Children can be annoying and difficult. But time flies, and before you know it they will be adults and out of the house. So don’t miss them while they’re there.

所有父母都会说养儿不易。小孩子令人讨厌,总惹麻烦。但是时光易逝,在你意识之前他们就会长大,会离开这个家。所以当他们还在你身边时,不要忘记珍惜他们。

19. Not learning who you can trust.

没学到应该相信谁

This is a difficult one for a lot of people – myself included. I was way too trusting in my younger years and learned the hard way who I could trust and who I couldn’t. The sooner you learn that lesson, the happier the rest of your life will be.

这对很多人来说是件困难的事,包括我自己。我年轻时太容易相信别人,在分辨哪些人值得信任的过程中吃了不少苦头。你吸取教训越早,剩下的生活就会越开心。

20. Not saying what you should have said.

没有说出该说的话

Did you not tell someone that you loved him/her? Did you not tell someone how much you appreciated them? Well, what are you waiting for? There’s no time like the present. Do it now.

你是不是从未对你心中的他/她表白过?你是不是从来没有告诉过一些人你是多么欣赏他们?那你还在等什么呢?现在是最好的时间。马上去说吧。

21. Not doing what you should have done.

没有做该做的事

Ditto from #20. Don’t wait. Just do it. Get off your tushie and just do it. You won’t regret it!

同第20条。不要等待。直接做就好。马上动身去做吧。你不会后悔的!

I hope these 21 reminders put life into perspective a little more for you. You don’t want to be on your death-bed someday having any regrets. So make this your motto: No Excuses, No Regrets!

我希望这21条提醒能帮你更好的看清生活。你肯定不希望在临死前留下遗憾。所以让这句话成为你的座右铭吧:没有借口,没有遗憾!
