The Power of Regret and How to Avoid It.

It’s a subject that not many people want to talk about, but is critical to think about when planning for your future.

One of the most powerful motivations is when you see the look of regret in someone’s eyes. One of the most common regrets from people on their deathbed is “I wish I let myself be happy”, or “I wish i had the courage to live a life true to myself, and not what others expected of me”. It sounds cliche, but you have to make the most out of every day.

Your future is going to be a directly reflection of the actions that you take daily. Most people think in terms of instant gratification and that’s why they end up with regret. You have to start thinking about your life 10, 15 ,20 years from now, and doing everything that you can to make sure you don’t end up living a life of regret.
