Today we have another one of those fairly obvious lesson, which allot of people get wrong…
Take Risks & Don’t Have Regrets
This may sound absolutely obvious and slightly crazy but ultimately it’s the decisions you make in life that take you to where you are in life, different decisions would make you someone different.
I’m pretty sure it’s written elsewhere but I am going to write it again, had I not have made all the mistakes made in life at a young age, then I wouldn’t be the man I am today, had I not have taken the risks I have then I again wouldn’t be the man I am today.
If my life had of been perfect this website wouldn’t exist, I may not have even met you mother, this different version of me probably did meet someone else, so you would be different or I may have ended up some world class player, and never settled down, I don’t know, and ultimately I don’t really care.
There was a time, I didn’t get it, there was a time, I wished I could go back and change things, but then I realised these things made me a better man, your mother even once remarked, you are one of the best guys I have ever met and you will grow into an even better man and this is within a few months of us dating.
My point is, by regretting the things you have done, the decisions you have made, you ultimately regret who you are at your very core, and that never lead to anything good, except maybe an addiction to anti-depressants, whereas if you accept and embrace the challenges and decisions you have made they make you a better person you can move on, and you can adapt.
Live life with no regrets, take risks and you will lead the best life possible, you will make mistakes no doubt but they will be funny stories, to share with your kids one day, when you are teaching them all the things I taught you because in the end it doesn’t matter because the knocks shape you, just as much as the successes in fact you learn more from my failures than from success.
