At some point in many of our lives… we sit back and perform mental surveys in our minds. Unfortunately, for the majority of us… that mental survey is full of regrets.
And while we’re listing all of our regrets… we all do two things:
#1 We run down the list of all the things we regret doing.
#2 We mentally replace those regrets with all the things we ‘should have’ done.
DURING OUR ADULT LIVES… WE ‘SHOULD’ ALL OVER OURSELVES!
“I should’ve done this.”
“I should’ve done that.”
“I should’ve taking life more seriously.”
“I should’ve been more responsible.”
The fact is:
People would have more time to invest in their future… if they stopped paying rent in their past. Meaning, as adults we waste so much time in regret and should haves, that it begins to consume the majority of our thoughts.
AND OUR THOUGHTS DRIVE OUR ACTIONS.
If you’re constantly reminding yourself about your ‘Should-Haves,’ sooner or later that mental message will tell yourself that it’s time to give up. This is the reason many adults make that slow transition into the physical rat-race… repeating the same dead end routines, while unconsciously going through their daily motions.
YOUR PAST IS TOO DANGEROUS TO KEEP REVISITING!
Do you know why so many people are ill-prepared for their futures? It’s because the minds of so many people are not focused on their future. It’s as simple as that!
Don’t waste another day filling your mind with ‘Should-Haves.’
Begin to make a daily practice of focusing your mind on your ‘Want-To’s.’
KEEP YOUR FOCUS ON YOUR FUTURE…
