At the end of their lives, most people would say they have at least one regret. Most of the times, the regret is related to things they wanted to do but did not do when the time was right.
Why is it that we don’t try to do as many things we dream about while we still can? There is a prize for that: we would be able to look back with pleasure and joy, and say we had a truly fulfilling and most of all, happy life.
We know priorities and dreams can be very different from one person to the other, but here is our top five things you should not miss if you want to have a great life.

Travel, travel and again – travel! It gives you the chance to meet inspiring people and see breaking places. Every time you travel to a new place, you are enriched by people, places and experiences you go through while being there. As time passes by and you get older, you might find it more difficult to travel, as more people depend on you or you might even have difficulties moving freely.
#2 for a fulfilling life:

Learn a foreign language. This might prove very useful when applying for a new job or going places. You should learn a new language while in school or higher education. It is a demonstrated fact people learn easier, more when it comes to linguistic competencies, when they are younger.
#3 for a fulfilling life:

Realize how beautiful and special you truly are. Beauty comes in many sizes, shapes and ages! Beauty should not be only about exterior looks, this is a very shallow definition of it. Pay attention to your true self and the beauty of your mind and spirit, and always have a great appreciation and high self-esteem for yourself, even if other fail to recognize your great value.
#4 for a fulfilling life:

Volunteer yourself for a good cause. There are many people in need. You do not have to go to Africa to save the wildlife or children there, take a look around! There are probably many disabled or elderly people, children or animal rescue or environmental origination out there in your area, who would greatly appreciate a helping hand.
#5 for a fulfilling life:

Take a big risk at least once in your lifetime. It might be in your love life or career. But don’t be afraid to go for what you want. Don’t let fear paralyze you. You will definitely see taking a big risk can also bring a bigger reward than a smaller one.
