How To Have No Regret
Do you have it?
If so – you’re not alone.
It’s ridiculously common and people all across the world feel it daily.
But there is a way to combat regret.
With one specific mindset you can banish regret from your life and reframe your thinking.
It sounds like a fairy tale or a magic bullet, but I’m talking from personal experience on this one. This is the real deal.
I filmed a video to explain what I’m talking about. It’s a little rough around the edges but this a new skill I’m learning so it will improve. Check it out…
Regret is when you play the mental loop in your head of “I wish I wouldn’t have done X like that.” or “I wish I would have done X like that.”
The Mindset: Everything you’ve done in your entire life has led up to this moment right now. The good, the bad and the indifferent was all necessary for you to become the person you are. Also it was all necessary for you to become the person you want to be.
1. Look back on your 2013.
2. Identify anything at all that you feel some regret for.
3. Ask yourself three questions
- What can I learn from that?
- How did I improve as a person because of doing that?
- What can I do better? Or what have I already done better because of that?
4. Let those answers sink in.
Life’s too short to ruminate on the past. All the stuff in your past has led up to right now. Act on this idea and start implementing on it a regular basis and I promise your regrets will go away.
