personal growth and that is a lifelong
learning process of ups and downs.
Do you let setbacks, failed ventures, or
wrong choices weigh you down with regrets?
Refuse to let your life fill up with regrets.
Why? Because living in a state of regret will hinder your personal growth and ability to achieve success.
The Pain Of Regret
Regret is a feeling or sense of sorrow or remorse over a past choice. Regret is like a first cousin to condemnation. They both leave us feeling guilty, defective, and unhappy.
In the short term, this can actually be a positive thing…
- It is like a wake-up call to show us how our life got off course.
- It makes us take a look at the choices we have been making in life.
- It makes us realize we can’t live this life on our own and it is important to cry out to the Lord for help.
“The godly cry out and the Lord hears; He saves them from all their troubles.”
— Psalm 34:17
We can, and should, learn from our mistakes and successes on our journey of life. And no doubt, living with regret and condemnation is a negative, low confidence, unhealthy state to be in. It keeps us stuck and unable to move forward.
“The LORD redeems his servants; no one will be condemned who takes refuge in Him.”
— Psalm 34:22
Remember: we have been blessed with the gift of life and a purpose for our time here on this earth. Why live in a way that causes constant regrets, and even worse, regrets we may have once we are in heaven and look back on how we lived our lives?
Success Is Full Of Challenges
The road to success is full of challenges and struggles. Achievement in any degree requires work, and often an outright battle. The storms of life can blow through and make it a fight just to survive at times, let alone stay on track pursuing our goals and desires.
“A righteous man may have many troubles, but the LORD delivers him from them all.”
— Psalm 34:19
If you look back in history, the greatest, most successful individuals had to invest a lot of effort in order to successfully achieve their goals. They had to push through their challenges with much determination. So we shouldn’t be surprised at the labor involved in achieving our goals.
Live With Purpose to Succeed
Live with no regrets by choosing to fight through the battles that come your way. Don’t quit. Run the race to finish – run the race to win.
“Let us run with endurance the race that is set before us…looking unto Jesus.”
— Hebrews 12:1-2
Take a moment to feel the pain of past regrets. No doubt you prefer to avoid those feelings of remorse, caused from not having done something you should have, or for making poor choices.
Today is the day to say no more regrets. Do not be afraid to step out and give the thing you know you should be doing a try. Do everything in your power to achieve it. Don’t give up at the first hurdle in your way. Learn to move beyond your mistakes. We all make them.
And remember always: “There is therefore now no condemnation to them who are in Christ Jesus.” (Romans 1:8)
Purpose to make positive choices in life and avoid future regrets. Leave the past in the past and move forward with no regrets.
Put this to the test right away: Maintain the mindset that you will always do your best to achieve whatever task is at hand. Strive to be the best person you can possibly be. Live life with no regrets – live to succeed.
May you choose to always do your best, live an amazing, successful life with no regrets, full of growing prosperity!
