I Wish I Knew Then What I Know Now!
I often hear people say: ?I wish I knew then what I know now?. In fact I am pretty sure that we can all relate to this particular phrase. Let?s face it; we all have made irrational decisions at some point of our lives.
I am also sure that many will love to travel back in time and change a thing or two. But, when you think about it mistakes are necessary in order to learn some of life?s valuable lessons. Picture a child jumping on a couch. His mother obviously more experienced in general foresees the danger and tells him: ?stop jumping on the couch, you might fall off and get hurt.? The child is having such a good time that ignores his mom?s command. What happens next? Just what the mother predicted. Chances are that if the child hit himself hard, he will be likelier to learn his lesson or at least give it a second though before doing it again.
Just like physical pain, emotional pain can teach us a thing or two; especially when situations do not go our way. In many aspects of life people learn through trial and error. Actors and actresses do not become a success overnight. It takes them years to get to the top.
So, whenever a turn out is not quite what you expected stop dreaming about traveling back in time to make different choices. Learn to see mistakes as part of life. Take some time to reflect on what went wrong and how you can avoid repeating the same error. Later, you should rewrite your strategy and last but; not least proceed without looking back.
Best of luck,
