When we look back on our lives, there are some common regrets that if avoided might have led us to be more successful. It is a part of life, whether we want them or not. As, when one is young, it is difficult to take smart decisions, because anticipating long term benefits and costs can be challenging in order to achieve success. Moreover, there are some mistakes which we make are avoidable, but lead to regret later in life.
Embrace reality and let go of the ideals, there is always a comparison of past choices to an ideal, which is always in conflict with the bad idea. One should move ahead in life, instead of contemplating on the regrets made in the past. The choices made in the past cannot be altered and maybe there was some good in the choice we made. Making choices is an amazing thing, and we should be satisfied and see them as “good enough” rather than hoping for the perfect choices if we want to be successful. Embracing the entire range of choices enhances our experience and makes us more confident.
