Many of us have known regret. Some regrets are unavoidable, but sometimes they can take over our lives. First, celebrate your failures: it’s really okay to screw up. The only guy who ever makes a mistake is the one involved in the play. So don’t ever regret failing – at least you were giving it a shot. Secondly claim your life, it is yours and you have the right to live it as you wish. One day life will be gone – imagine how you’ll feel if you get to the end of it and never made any of the important decisions in it. This is something you can change today.
If you want never to have regrets then make the decision here, now, even before you finish reading this post: either say goodbye to your dream or start pursuing it today. So go for it – or forever be comforted by your reasons not to, then let go. Then there will be no regrets. Learn to close doors, there are some regrets we just have to live with. But unless you get out and try again, you’ll never know if there wasn’t something better, will you? So, if you made mistakes and maybe you are still making them, learn from them and don’t regret anything!
Before we make a decision, most of us think: What if? What if I take that job overseas and I don’t like it, or I don’t like the country? What if I ask that girl out and she says no? What if I fail? What if people laugh at me? Then years later we’re bored with our job, and we wished we’d seen more of the world before we had our family. Or we got to a reunion and met that girl we thought was out of our league, and she’s married to someone else, and she tells you she always liked you and never understood why you never asked her out.
No matter how many mistakes you’ve made in your life, you only have to get it right once. Don’t look at what might have been – keep your eyes on the prize. A life of no regrets. It could start right here, right now.
