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

Greater authenticity

If you fall short of the goal, make another effort. If the efforts continue to fall short, find another strategy.

If the updated strategy doesn’t work, reconnect with your essential purpose. In that purpose is a driving energy that will never fail you.

You cannot fail at living and expressing who you truly are. The only real failure is to hold that back.

If some particular endeavor fails to bring the desired results, it’s probably because there’s not enough of you in it. Failure can in fact be a powerful force that will push you and compel you toward greater authenticity.

If it’s not working for you, it’s not coming from the truth of who you are. To be more effective, be more honest, more authentic, more willing to follow your deepest desires.

Be who you are, say what you mean, and work on what’s truly important to you. The more authentic you are, the more successful you’ll be.

— Ralph Marston
