To travel hopefully is a better thing than to arrive, and the true success is to labour.

What you wish you had done

Don’t let what you wish you had done stop you from what you can now do. Don’t let what you’ve failed to do become an excuse to give up and do nothing.

Momentum is powerful but it’s not insurmountable. If some habit or behavior in the past has not served you well, now is a great time to change it.

Just because you may have regrets is not a good reason to continue creating those regrets. Choose instead to transform past regrets into motivation for positive action in the present.

What do you wish you had done differently? Now is your opportunity to do it.

Sure, the world has moved along and you’ve missed some opportunities. But that doesn’t mean you have to miss the new opportunities to live with purpose, richness, and fulfillment.

Learn from the mistakes you’ve made and work to transform those lessons into real value. Stop wishing for a better past and get busy creating a great future.

— Ralph Marston
