5 Biggest Regrets In Life
When you look back at your life, how many of your dreams have gone unfulfilled?
After spending the best years of your life working hard to pay the bills and put your children through college, are you spending your retirement years living on your gratuity, EPF, or money you receive every month from your children?
Do you feel as if you’ve missed out on the best things in life – nice clothes, a big house, fast cars, and luxury holidays?
Do you regret not enjoying a rich and luxurious lifestyle when you were young, and feel that you’ve missed the opportunity now that you’re old?
Our biggest regrets in life are not for the things we did, but for the things we didn’t do.
Top 5 biggest regrets in life
1. I wish I had pursued my dreams and aspirations
The number one regret that most people have is not being brave enough to pursue their dreams. Fear of failure and fear of what people will say about them have kept them from realising their potential and living life to the fullest.
Now they live a mediocre life because it’s what they thought was expected of them.
2. I wish I had started my own business
Many people wish they had had the courage to leave their job and be their own boss. But the fear of change and fear of the future kept them from taking that leap of faith and making the money they could have made.
Maybe if they had started their own business back then, they would have become a millionaire by now.
3. I wish I had travelled the world
A lack of high income, difficulty taking leave days, children, and a busy schedule are common reasons why people missed the opportunity to travel around the world while they were younger.
Those who said they were waiting to retire or until they had saved up enough money before travelling were eventually too old, too tired, and not in the best of health to travel.
4. I wish I had purchased my dream house and car
Many people settle for an affordable house and a low-maintenance car, hoping that one day they’ll earn enough money to stay in a million-dollar home or buy a 2-door sports car, but they never do.
Now they can only hope that their children will buy them a nice car to appreciate them for all the money they spent on their children’s education.
5. I wish I had looked after my health
Many people spend the best years of their lives working extremely hard to support their family and pay the bills, oftentimes to the extent of neglecting their own health.
If they had made it a priority to get proper nutrition, exercise, and sleep, maybe they wouldn’t have to suffer health problems now.
Don’t let being old stop you from achieving your dreams.
