"Think of yourself as dead. You have lived your life.
Now, take what's left and live it properly."
Imagine for a moment that your life is over. You have died. Look at the complete story, the finished picture and ask yourself.. What was best?? What was worst?? When was I happiest?? What did I give?? What did I withhold?? How could I have done better, done more for others?? What stopped me?? Did I live my dreams? Fulfill my potential?? If not, why not?? Did I make a difference?? Have I left a gap in the world?? etc.
Now, remember that you are alive. You still have the chance to do it! I reckon that no one is really afraid of dying, but just afraid that when death comes they will not have really lived.
