Imagine yourself a year, three years, or even five years ago.
If you could turn back time and do things differently what would you do change?
This is one of those questions that can lead you down a slippery road to feeling regretful and sorry for yourself about past mistakes and leave you stuck looping of could-have-beens.
But there are nuggets of wisdom.
Your story can help protect others from making similar mistakes.
And your past can help improve your future if you let it.
Most of our regrets are not what we did, but what we wish we did but didn’t.
What if a year ago you started and stuck to a healthier diet, such as paleo, slow-carb, or plant-based?
What if a year ago you really dove into your community and started connecting and investing in your friends?
Or what if a year ago you finally took the leap and started your own business?
Where would you be today?
Maybe you did do something like these, and now are reaping the benefits of a solid year of investing in yourself.
Again, there’s no point in dwelling on our past and things we can change. But we can apply this same idea to ourselves and our future.
Now imagine your life one year into the future. What would your future self wish you were doing every day? What habits would you be cultivating today? What would you do more of or less of?
A year goes by quickly. A year from now, what would you regret doing or not doing today?
I realize now after writing this I’m basically just repeating the plot of A Christmas Carol ha 😂🙈er
