I’ve heard of stories of people who have had a heart attack when running.

I don’t want to have a heart attack, so I had better not start running.

But is that really the way it works?

Then there are those who have launched their own business, only to work ridiculously long hours only for it to not work out.

Who wants that?

Whether it’s getting married, starting a family, building a house or travelling overseas, we have all heard stories of times when the relationships ended in divorce, the kids turned into teenagers, the builder was shonky or it rained non-stop for three weeks.

But is that reason enough to not live?

Be careful of the stories that you listen to and interpret.

Maybe they’re not saving you from dire consequences, they’re just holding you back from living your best life.
