The Formula for Regret

Formular for RegretWoulda. Shouda. Coulda.

While not grammatically correct, I think these three words correctly describe the feelings experienced, at one time or another, by every human being. All three can be summed up by one word. Regret.

For many it becomes a ritual. A habit. A way of life.  Sadly, these folks often find the success they desire elusive

But when they come to understand how the universe works, and align their actions with the forces at play, they can quickly join their more successful counterparts.

Understanding how things work not only makes it easier to succeed, but faster too.

If you are experiencing regret in any area, the root cause is most often described by  something I call the “Formula for Regret“.

Simply stated and shown by the “photo” graph above, Your Intentions Quickly Fade over Time.

If you think about the successful accomplishments in your life, times when you got done the things you wanted to do, even the small things, you will always find that you dug right in. You had a thought, jumped right in to do what you had to do, and in short time the thing was done. You experienced success.

Conversely, if you examine your regrets in life, you will find a pattern of delay. There was something you thought you wanted, an intention, but maybe weren’t exactly sure how to get it so you procrastinated. After a time you found yourself justifying not getting it (your regret) by saying that you probably didn’t want or need that thing after all.  But still, a tiny smidgen of regret stayed with you. Maybe for years and years.

The “Formula for Regret” can work for or against you. If you understand that your intentions fade, lose power quickly over time, you can use the formula to begin at once taking action to move closer to the thing you want. Even if you don’t know exactly how to get it, take some action, any action. Even just finding out who to ask  helps you make progress and keeps your intention alive.

A motivational speaker, Joe Vitale, has a famous mantra based on this formula, he says, “Money Loves Speed”. Many successful stories in business are tied to those who did something first, not necessarily best. Ray Kroc opened the first fast-food hamburger chain. Notice the word FAST in there. Not “THE BEST” just fast. Here we have “The Original Pancake House”. Thousands of restaurants sell pancakes, but without even knowing if they were good, if I were looking to eat pancakes and knew nothing about the other restaurants in town, I’d want to got to the “Original” pancake house. They were first, still here –  must be good.

Most folks go to their graves with more regret for the things they DIDN’T DO than for the things they did do. So if you’re tired of regrets and wish to enjoy a great deal more success in your life, TAKE ACTION ON YOUR INTENTIONS QUICKLY!

Stop second guessing (our human intuition is remarkable accurate when working for the good), stop procrastinating, and start taking action immediately on the thing that is most troubling you today.

These days, many folks who got layed off regret not starting and owning their own business. Many of my readers (you?) may have considered starting a photography business. If that’s you, TODAY is the best day to put your intentions to work. If you don’t, I guarantee they will fade over time and in 5 or 10 years, you’ll still be where you are right now. Only you’ll be weary from carrying regret.

Look to the right hand column for proven solutions that banish the “Formula for Regret” from your life, replacing it with happiness and prosperity.
