5 Regrets You’ll Pay For Later In Life

August 17, 2016

Regrets are more painful then setbacks. I learned this throughout my 6 year struggle with debilitating anxiety. Little did I realize at the time how stale my life really was. How I closed myself off on the people, and things that truly mattered.

Understand these 5 regrets that you don’t want to make later in life. Make sure to begin taking action starting today, so that you can begin living a fulfilling life now:

  1. Spending too little time with the right people. – Sooner or later, you just want to be around the people who make you smile. So today, spend time with those who help you love yourself more. And remember, the people you take for granted today may be the only ones you need tomorrow. Never be too busy to make time for those who matter most.
  1. Not taking action on meaningful goals. – Instead of complaining about your circumstances, get busy creating new ones. You either suffer the pain of discipline or the pain of regret. Most of the time, the only difference between who you are and who you want to be, is what you do. When it’s all said and done, be sure you haven’t said more than you’ve done.
  1. Settling for less than you are capable of. – Remember, growth and change may be painful sometimes, but nothing in life is as painful as staying stuck where you don’t belong.
  1. Collecting more excuses than you can count. – If you really want to do something, you’ll find a way. If you don’t, you’ll find an excuse.
  1. Letting impatience dominate your decisions and actions. – Patience is not about waiting; it’s the ability to keep a good attitude while working hard for what you believe in.

And of course, if you’re struggling with any of these points, know that you are not alone. Many of us are right there with you, working hard to feel better, think more clearly, and live a life free of headaches and heartache.

    Numbers 1 and 5 are me. I try to be patient and I usually end up jumping into a decision that I regret. Patience is hard to attain and once you have it, you still have to work to maintain it. Do you see patience as an inherited behavior or a learned skill?

    • Definitely a learned skill. I used to be a completely different person from who I am today. I have to thank certain mentors, and perseverence for the patience I feel now.
