All our lives, we carry a bucket in which we have a list of things, which we need or want to do in life. However, everyone focuses on the things they need to do very few are those who understand that in the bucket there is a list of things which they have done in the past and those things require cherishing. Therefore, the correct use of a bucket list is when it tells you about what you need to do in the future whilst being memorable and proud of what has been done in the past.
It has come to my notice that there are people who try to hide their bucket list, whether it’s the things they would do in the future or the ones they have done in the past. Today, I’ll be sharing with you the bucket list of things that you should feel proud of.
The first thing that is in your bucket list of accomplished things is your attitude. Your attitude shapes over life, therefore, if you have a friendly, joyful, confident and considerate towards others kind of attitude, then you don’t need to worry about your future and should be proud of your attitude. Therefore, in your bucket list, your attitude towards things and people is the first thing you need to cherish and be proud of.
Lessons of Life:
Life is not only about success and achievements, rather, but there are also all sorts of lessons in life and a person needs to appreciate the failures in life the same way as the victories. One should not be ashamed if he or she has led a life of hardships and faced numerous failures in life, rather one should see them as lessons which have enabled a person to rise to a level where he or she is at present. Therefore, a person must be proud of the lessons learned in life, instead of hiding them or ignoring their existence.
The other obvious thing you should be proud of in your bucket list is your achievements. You need to be proud of your achievements whichever you have. The problem with most of the people is that they think of only big successes as achievements and do not realize the fact that life comprises of small achievements as well, and these small achievements are more frequent than the odd big success. Therefore, it is imperative that you are proud of your accomplishments no matter how rare and how small they are, they still are your achievements and you had to strive to achieve them.
The financial decisions one takes in life have a great role to play when it comes to categorizing life as a success of failure. In this regard, you have to take ownership of all your financial decisions whether they are good or bad and be proud of them. It is your bad decision that serves as an experience for the investment you makes which then turns out to be your good decision. Therefore, don’t make your bad financial decisions orphans by blaming it on others; rather give them the same value and importance as your good financial decisions.
Friends and Relatives:
The last but the most important thing in your bucket list, which you need to be most proud of, is the friends and relatives you have. The people around you have a great role to play in making you what you are. Therefore, if you are successful, then consider the role played by your relations in making you successful and if you haven’t achieved success yet, then appreciate the relations for the role they can play in making you successful. Therefore, one way or another appreciates the friends and relations you have around you that support you in your struggle for success.
