- If you only knew then what you know now
- Learn from those who have come before you
- Let the experiences of others show you …
James Green, okay, you’ve done some things you regret. Who hasn’t, right? And there’s no doubt you’ve failed to act on a chance to make your life richer. We’ve all missed out on opportunities. But it’s those one or two big moments “that got away” that nag at you and keep you looking back at how things might have been, or make you wonder if you’ll ever get another chance to get it right.
On the other hand, we also remember moments of extreme clarity, and of satisfaction so great we can barely contain it. Insight and experience come together at the right time and place and for the rest of our lives we know we’ve done one fine thing.
Whether fine or tragic, these moments can serve as guideposts for others. It’s like having a kitchen table heart-to-heart with a trusted mentor who begins: “Here’s what I know,” or “If there’s one thing I’ve learned . . . ” And you’re not alone if you’ve caught yourself saying: You’re in good company. Few of us get through life without wishing we could get a do-over. But you know the rules: You only go around once. So what’s the secret to making better choices the first time through? And what practical wisdom and insight will help you to re-shape your destiny to match your dreams?
Let the experiences of others show you that:
You should think twice before you let love walk away . . .
When you’re not appreciated at work, you can move on . . .
You can change your life before it’s too late . . .
Time passes and before you know it . . .
When you do what you love, the joy will follow . . .
Your children need your presence . . . now . . .
To act on your dreams you must awaken . . .
