Avoid the Pain of Regret

by Gina Parris

Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn’t do than by the ones you did. So throw off the bowlines, Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. – Mark Twain

If the fear of moving forward has you blocked into an unfulfilling corner, than think for a moment. (but just for a moment.) Think about the future. If you take no different action and you look back at yourself even one year or five years from now, will you be happy with no change? Will you have regrets?

As Mark Twain said,

“You will be more disappointed by the things you didn’t do than by the ones you did.”

Most people will stay in a place they hate, rather than risk the unknown. This is an IMPOSSIBLE way to unleash your full potential!

You were created for dominion. You were never meant to live “under the circumstances.”

You have untold ability to make the world a better place. You have a creator who gives you the power to get wealth. He says he will bless the work of your hands – but you must put those hands to work with passion.

Now that you have thought about the pain of regret, please decide one action that you can take TODAY that will move you out of your comfort zone and closer to a worthy goal. Get information, build a relationship, shop for your investment, make a phone call, put your shoulders back, put your chin up and speak with confidence.

You can’t control the outcome, but you can trust in diligent, consistent action. If you don’t quit, you won’t fail.

More importantly, you won’t sit in regret.

What do you really want to do, be and have? Then get up, and GET GOING! You don’t have to do it perfectly, just make a plan and start moving.

I’ll be right here, cheering you on!
