How can we live a fulfilling life? How can we avoid deathbed regret? That's our greatest challenge. Our greatest challenge is living a life that's true to ourselves. Being who we are meant to be, not who we think we have to be. If we want a fulfilled life, if we want to be a force for change in the world, this is what we need to do.
