We Will Just Regret The Things We Have Not Done

You probably know the above saying and you probably also know that it is very true.
Have you ever said no to something, and at the next moment were annpyed about your stupid choice?

If you have not so far, you will definitely experience this in the future. Personally, I guess it happens nearly every month to me. I remember when I had a job interview but when the recruiter asked me if I really wanted the job stuttert. Not very convincing to take such an employee, what?

Or I had the chance to go on a great trip but was somehow afraid to tell that I was interested. Unfortunately the rest of the people drove without me then. It turned out it was one of the coolest trips the guys had ever made in their lives. In these moments you would love hitting yourself :)

There are so many opportunities in life. But most of the time we just use few of them. Why? Because we might wait for something better or think that we don't earn the opportunity or are just afraid of something new. And even some people think that they deserve the bad things in life, why? Because it was always like that.

Screw it. It's not like that. If you are poor today, you can get rich tomorrow. If you don't have a great job now, maybe you should seek for a better one and take some risks because you will just regreat the opportunities you have not taken in life.

Be a tester, test everything (as long it's legal and ethical ok). You should not betray your boyfriend or girlfriend just because you wan to try new things but you can test different jobs, different life styles, clothes, cars, friends etc.

Don't be afraid to be yourself

Take the chances. Personally I am not a complete risk taker, but what I discovered 1 and a half years ago is, that you sometimes have to take risks and search for another job and quit the old one. Although this can be unconvenient, but if you are not satisfied with your current state make the necessary change because otherwise you might regret it once.

A couple of years ago there was a study made about the regrets of people knowing that they did not have much time left in their live.

You know what number 1 of all regrets was:

Top five regrets

#1. I wish I'd had the courage to live a life true to myself, not the life others expected of me.
"This was the most common regret of all. When people realise that their life is almost over and look back clearly on it, it is easy to see how many dreams have gone unfulfilled. Most people had not honoured even a half of their dreams and had to die knowing that it was due to choices they had made, or not made. Health brings a freedom very few realise, until they no longer have it."

Fullfilling your own dreams, taking opportunities instead of waiting for them your whole life is key cornerstone to a more satiesfied life. 

Make sure not to regret things just because you did not have the courage to try them.

IT's YOUR LIFE, don't give a shit about what others say about your profession, your clothing style, your girl/boyfriend, your attitude about different topics, etc. Just say how you perceive things and live them.
