Extra Mile Man Shawn Anderson Offers Quick Tips Now to Avoid Massive Regret Later.
Los Angeles, CA, May 17, 2016 — Motivational speaker and author Shawn Anderson believes there is one fact about life we should always remember: “Life is way too short and goes by way too fast.” The author of A Better Life: An Inspiring Story About Starting Over believes that “when we regularly acknowledge this ‘short and fast’ truth, we are given an extra dose of urgency and courage to get us off our butts and quit living lives we don’t like.”
Recognized for having interviewed and coached hundreds of people who chose to re-define their life purpose, Anderson imagines if people took this “red alert” to heart they would have fewer regrets at the end of their lives. “If you don’t like the life you’re living, change it! Don’t wait until the end to start thinking about what you wish you had done with your life. It’s time to quit coasting, making excuses, pointing fingers, and waiting for a miracle. Do it now…or do it never.”
The recent #1 ranked Amazon “motivation” and “self-help” author continues, “If we want fewer regrets at the end of life, let’s quit letting fear stop us from taking risks now. Fear is our arch-enemy whose intention is to take everything great from our lives. To me, failure in the short run pales in comparison to regret in the long run. Whatever that voice inside you is whispering in relation to your goals and dreams…listen, and act on it.”
With a mission of empowering one million people to lead a more positive and purposeful life, Anderson walks his talk. The author of six motivational books, Anderson is also the creator of “Extra Mile Day” – a day recognizing the capacity we each have to create positive change when we go the extra mile. On November 1, 2016, 560 mayors and cities made the declaration and recognized those in their local communities who were going the extra mile in volunteerism and service. Anderson takes the go the extra mile message literally. He has pedaled a bicycle solo across the U.S. twice, and will be walking border-to-border across his 5th country in June 2017.
Anderson concludes, “At the end of my life, I don’t want to be caught wishing on what could have been. We’re never guaranteed tomorrow…only now. The more our feet stay stuck in concrete today, the more we will be stuck on regret later.”
