I have always feared regret. If something is constantly making my heart heavy and I don’t do it, say it or grab that opportunity I fear I will forever regret it. You have this strong intuition or gut feeling that maybe I should take this action. But maybe due to external limitations you ignore your own desires.
What we have is ourselves, what will be left in the end would be you. So when that time arrives how will you look back at life? Living it wild with risks or with regret because you let things slip.
I was more determined than ever after watching and listening to Jeff Bezos’ Princeton University Speech. The video and his words speak for itself. And so I was inspired to make a video on regret and his speech is the most accurate thing I could incorporate in my video. Do give the video a watch. If you think it can inspire more, do share!
I would like to add some more words of encouragement to help you break through from what’s stopping you. Life doesn’t come with a book of guides or rules. Your thoughts become things and your passion directs you.
Follow your passion
Don’t stick with anything you hate; people, relationships or job
Take control of your life
Avoid making excuses to yourself or others
Give up your bad habits; least harmful to deadly
Start caring enough
Don’t allow fear to take control
Don’t let your thoughts control you, become the one who controls your thought flow
Value every moment
Take calculated risks
Learn new things
Make time for fun and hobbies
Make your imaginations come true
Your life is the series of choices you make. So what will you choose?
