Have you done things that you’ve regretted?

I know I have. I have done a lot of pretty dumb things in my life. When I was a kid, I would often wish I could turn back time. So then whenever I would mess up, I could just turn back the clock and undo the damage. Wouldn’t that be wonderful?

Then I grew up and I realized that having the power to turn back time would end up being more of a curse than a blessing. With such power, people just may start playing God. You can do or say anything. Anyway, whatever happens can be undone. Right?

Sometimes I sit and think about the things I should have or shouldn’t have done. Yes. I used to regret a lot of things. Until I realized that regret wont change anything in the past. No one can undo the past. But you can always do something about the future.

I believe the one thing you can do about your past mistakes is to learn from them. Don’t make excuses, blame other people or waste time regretting it. According to Brian Tracy, the moment you blame others for your mistakes, you give the power of the lesson to them. So instead of learning the lesson, you let it go to waste. On the other hand, wallowing in regret keeps your focus on the past. Let it go. Focus on the present. There is so much you can do to make your future better. But you have to live in the now. Today is a gift we shouldn’t let go to waste.

There are no regrets in life, just lessons. – Jennifer Aniston

There is no use crying over spilt milk. What’s done is done. Learn the lesson and move on.

I have made tons of mistakes. And I know that I wont stop making mistakes. But that is a part of life. We make mistakes and we learn from them. If we don’t learn the lesson, life will make us go through it again and again until we do.

Now, I have decided not to regret anything. Everything that has happened in the past has made me the person I am today.

Have you done things that you’ve regretted?

Let the past go. Live your life in the present.

No regrets.

Go life a Truly Wealthy life!
