If only. Those must be the two saddest words in the world. – Mercedes Lackey
your big ones
The 3 big regrets most people have (according to a study referenced in a book I was listening to this morning called ‘Flip’) are:
- Education: Not being able to get the experience and training you really wanted.
- Business opportunities: Not grabbing and implementing business ideas as they appeared.
- Time with family: Not loving enough and not spending time with loved ones enough.
Regret has to do with missed opportunities and action not taken. What are your big ones?
What are you not doing, not being, not pursuing and not living, today, that will cause you to say ‘if only’ in the future? How do you handle regrets and disappointments today? Are you happy?
