A study was conducted on seniors a few years ago. The study showed that there are many people who regret the things they did not have the courage to do, but few who regret the things they did.
If we take this study into account, we assume that tomorrow is the last day of your life. Do you have any regrets about the things you did or not?
What I want to emphasize through this mental exercise is that you should check your life before – before it’s too late and start to regret it. If you are not careful on how to do it, here is a list that could help you to change things to live a life without remorse.
1. Get your life on purpose
First, you need to understand how important it is for you to have your life on purpose. If you continue to move all your important plans, if you do things just to do it, it is likely that you reflect your life with regret. Stop hacking the wrong things and putting your life in order to spend your life on purpose.
2. Do not waste time
It is curious to see how tomorrow looks better than what we have today when it comes to doing things. We stop doing the things that matter to us. We lie and say that we will do it later … tomorrow or tomorrow. Stop deceiving is your life with which you play, it is your future and the future of those who are close to you.
3. Let the mentality of the victim go
Know that the more you complain, the more you need to find a solution and get out of the mud. The brain is wired for problems to protect it from danger, but remember that we are no longer cavemen.
4. Use a new start every day
It really is not serious where you were, it does not matter how many mistakes you made and it is not really important how often you were rejected and ridiculed in the past. Today is a new day and you have another chance to get an opportunity to start.
5. Leave your excuses
There are so many people who are able to overcome their disabilities and to inspire life. Take, for example, Hellen Keller. However, there are many people who do not have disabilities and still have all kinds of excuses for not running with their lives without knowing that it will give them more trouble along the way.
Do not let it look inside and know there is something you can do better than anyone else. Find what is something and share it with the whole world. Here you will find happiness.
6. Let the need to compare with others
No matter what you do, no matter who you are or where you are, do not forget that you have your own unique path. Do not compare your work or your trip to another person because it only directs you from your own path to your own journey of self-discovery and self-control.
7. Let the self-sabotage go
Yes, we sabotage the whole time, whether we realize it or not. We say we want something, and when we feel that our path is coming, we are afraid we are beginning to sabotage in one way or another, and this is usually done on the subconscious level.
8. Leave the “what if”
“Recalling that you will die is the best way to know to avoid the trap that you have something to lose.
And if I make fun of myself, and if I fail, and if I look dumb, and if and if … Well, you will never know it before you try. Probably nothing frightens you. If you ask me, there is nothing more frightening than wasting your life, there is nothing more afraid than reaching the end of your life and recognizing that you have lost it, the only life that was offered.
9. Get out of your comfort zone
Get out of your comfort zone, you have the courage to come into the unknown, because that is how you allow your mind to grow, grow and create new things. Do not be afraid to try new things, do not be afraid to make mistakes, and most importantly, do not be afraid to learn from these mistakes.
10. Ask questions
To learn and grow, you have to ask questions – many questions. No one is born to have the answer to everything. It is good not to know, so do not be afraid to ask questions
11. Use your time to improve through the writings of other men
With the Internet and the many resources that we have today, it is very easy to learn everything we want to learn and more. You can not use your excuses.
Take advantage of what they offer and promise: “Use your time to improve other people’s writings so you can easily find what others have worked hard.” ~ Socrates
12. Find mentor
Find someone to help you become the person you want, whether that person is alive or not, whether someone you know personally or not. This will have a great impact on your life and your trip. I chose Wayne Dyer as my mentor and I just talked to him once. But that did not prevent me from being inspired and motivated by him and all his teachings and mastering many of the abilities he has.
13. Do not give up on yourself
Regardless of the possible difficulty of life and no matter what happens to you, do not give up on yourself and do not give your dreams. Trust in yourself and know that Dale Carnegie said, “Most of the important things in the world were made by people who tried time and again when there was no hope.”
