Regret for the things we did can be tempered by time; it is regret for the things we did not do that is inconsolable.

Yours to choose

Achievement doesn’t care about what credentials you have or don’t have. It doesn’t care about your physical appearance or what groups you belong to.

Achievement doesn’t care how many times you’ve failed in the past. It doesn’t care about the mistakes you’ve made.

Achievement doesn’t care that you’ve said you’re going to do it a dozen or a hundred or a thousand times in the past and then failed each time to do so. Achievement is yours to have right now if you choose to work for it right now.

The past is over and doesn’t play a role in what you can do next. Your present situation does not have the power to hold you back unless you allow it.

Achievement is yours when you make the commitment to create it. Achievement is yours when you choose to set a truly meaningful and compelling goal in front of yourself and then do the work to reach it.

Achievement is yours to choose, no matter what. Choose achievement now, and get busy adding real richness to life.
