Do You Have the 4 Needs in Life?

what are you passionate about...

I recently heard Lou Holtz speak and one section of his speech stood out to me. He talked about everyone needing 4 Things in life.

  1. Something To Do – something you are really passionate about.
  2. Someone To Love
  3. Something To Hope For
  4. Someone To Believe In

Do you have all 4 in your life? I’ve read and heard about people that don’t have something to hope for dying quickly after they retire. We are either growing or dying in life no matter what age you may be. There is no such thing as maintenance mode because in this mode there is nothing to strive for.

Your Life is and will be about CHOICES and DECISIONS. When you decide in advance, you own your life vs. it owning you. Living Right is a Choice. How are you doing on the below items:

  • Do the Right Thing
  • Knowing your Priorities
  • Living your actions according to your priorities
  • Being Honest (the truth is easy, lying is hard)
  • Not holding grudges or being bitter

Action Items

  • Assess yourself against the 4 Things of Life.
    • Write Down the sentences and write your answer to each of them
    • Validate your answers with someone you trust
    • Adjust your actions if needed
  • Assess yourself against the Living Right statements
    • Write them down
    • Write your answers down with any thoughts on each
    • Adjust if needed with specific action items and due dates

Good Luck – you can minimize regrets in life if you make some conscious decisions in advance and keep the “4 Things in Life” in front of you.
