‘There’s no time like the present’. We all know the saying but how many of us apply it to our daily lives? Are your ready to take out that old bucket list you made when you were 15, 25 or even 50 and realise that it’s still possible to make yourself proud of what you’ve achieved in your life? You can start now, because not everything requires a fortune—or even a lot of free time—to achieve.
See if your bucket list items appear on our list, go make them reality, or use our ideas to get creative about achieving your own life goals.
Own Your Own Business
Does this seem a bit far fetched? You’ll be surprised how easy it is to become a business owner by simply using today’s online shopping phenomenon. Thanks to features like dropshipping you don’t even have to buy property or own stock to become your clients’ new favourite supplier.
Learn a New Hobby or Language
The online universe is handy for many types of bucket list items, such as providing you with endless learning opportunities. No need to book a class that will rob you of your weekend! Simply view videos online whenever you’re at home. Learn about anything from cooking to woodworking or a new sport. With videos and apps you can even learn a new language without paying a lot of money.
See an Exotic Animal
If you imagine yourself looking for an anaconda in the Amazon, you may have to save for a few years before you can pack your bags and go. But there are many other ways to see remarkable animals, without even putting your life in danger.
In game reserves in KZN, South Africa—a very affordable destination—you can take a drive and try to see the Big Five between the trees. Or, why not raise a unique pet like a chinchilla or a bearded dragon? Just make sure you obtain your new pet from a legal supplier and that they weren’t taken from the wild.
Have Something Named After You
Fancy your name on a billboard or a building? Why not keep it simple, create the most interesting cocktail your friends ever tasted and name it after yourself? If future generations of your family also enjoy it, your name will be called for decades to come—and always make people smile.
Leave a Legacy
A legacy? Isn’t that meant for the wise and rich among us? No! Your life has taught you may valuable lessons. You simply need to find a way to pass them on and thanks to a personal blog you can share it with the world. If you don’t like to write, record your thoughts and post vlogs that may go viral.
Have 15 Minutes of Fame
If it’s fame rather than a legacy you’re after, simply look for opportunities in cities where movie and TV crews work. They often need extras on set and you may even get paid for the few seconds you’re in the background of a scene. Your entire family is sure to watch that episode and you’ll have your 15 minutes!
It’s all about getting started. Write down your bucket list wish and then look for original ways to make it happen. It’s not too late!
