The choice: Discipline or Regret

7 Oct 2017   Shanti Gowans

There's nothing worse than looking back at a pivotal moment in your life and thinking, "I wish I had have stepped out on a limb and given that a shot."

And there's nothing better than looking back at a tough decision and feeling the pride of knowing that it was a smart one, a positive turning point in your life.

Life is too short not to go for it.

Wouldn't you rather look back and say "I gave it my all" than look back with regret that I didn't try.

So if you are not where you want to be with your life, your relationships, your career or business right now, if you're sitting on the fence, consider taking control of your future.

Ask yourself...

"Will I regret not giving this a shot when I look back on this in the future?"

"Will I regret having missed out on all that will come from it?"

And if you are warming toward answering "yes", I am going to highly encourage you to take the first step in changing your situation. I don't want you to have regrets.


You have big things ahead of you. Step out, onto that limb or you will look back on this later with regret, and end up still stuck where you are.

We all suffer from one of two pains: the pain of discipline or the pain of regret. What weighs on your more, discipline or regrets? Discipline weighs ounces. Regret weighs tons. Which one will you consistently choose?
