In hindsight – but NOW!

Remember back when you were in high school… knowing what you know now, what would you do differently if you were back there again? Probably lots – in my case, probably almost everything!

The same goes throughout our lives. Looking back on things we can see where fear held us back, and we can see how pointless that fear was in hindsight.

At some point in time you will look back on how you are today, right now, and see how you could have done things differently.

You’ll see that there was fear holding you back from doing some things.

You’ll see that you weren’t making the most of all the opportunities you had before you.

You’ll see that there were things you could have done but didn’t, things that would have improved your life and the lives of others.

You could wait until a long time in the future to think about this. If you enjoy the feeling of regret, this is the best option. But if you want to make the most of your life, why wait until then to look back in hindsight?

Why not do it now?

Don’t wait till that moment in the far of future to realise this. Open your eyes and see it now. Look at yourself and what you’re doing. Where is fear holding you back? What opportunities are you missing RIGHT NOW?!
