The Biggest Regret is "What If..."

in success •  last year

When do we really start to live? When we face death. Why do we want to change the world? Because it makes us feel something. What do you want to do before you die? Figure this out before it's too late.

As time goes, all these questions begin to drift anyone. At some point in life we come to realization that there is something bigger. A purpose of living. All the achievements and failures, what do they mean, If they will die with us? Personally, I can say, there are few things I've learned by now that I divided by understanding and applying. I wish, someone would have told me this before I had lessons to survive.


1. Life.

"Society tames the wolf into a dog. And man is the most domesticated animal of all." – Nietzsche

2. Love.

"Charlie Kaufman: But she thought you were pathetic.
Donald Kaufman: That was her business, not mine. You are what you love, not what loves you."

3. Choice.

"All we have to decide is what to do with the time that is given to us." – Gandalf

The ultimate guidance is to understand the simple things, as soon as you can.


The applying part consists of a few rules, to bring you closer to where you think, you're going. Well, some call it success, but what is success? Is it influence, money, fame, status? Is it freedom or or or...?

First Rule. Define success. Find your Purpose.

I was going to this world, to make something bigger than I am, before someone smarter than I am, told me there is nothing bigger than myself. Many of us, have zero idea of what do we really want and why. Why do I want to be successful and If It's so easy to lose me then who am I? Clarify the right goal for yourself or a lot of them to achieve the right one. The goal with a purpose. What do you want to achieve before you die? The answer might amaze you.

Second Rule. "Learn How To...".

A lot of times in life, they offer us to empty bottles, that empty us. A lot of times, we don't even notice this. Think about it, starting from the basic education, they teach us how to afford the living, but not how to live. Then we grow up, being afraid to take a different path than everyone else, because the crowd follows grey stereotypes. Learn how to be different. Learn how to... yourself. The crowd judges and doesn't accept anything beyond the mediocrity. And then I said, fuck crowd. That is why I'm writing this right now, and that is why I am where I want to be. Are you? If not - see rule number 3.

Third Rule. There is no rules.

Except the ones you make as facts for your own living. Find your purpose first, put God(spirituality, love) before anything else, learn to live by rising others, take care of your health and seek for wisdom. Simple secret of success is to stick to it, make actions and keep faith in the outcome. I can promise you one thing, If your purpose comes from pure and good intentions - Universe will push it for you.

The best part is - once you achieve it - you'll know you chose your life and didn't settle for it. When you'll come to the end, without asking "What If..." - it will be your biggest success and your greatest reward. Aim for it.

Nice info and good post keep it on!!!


Thank you! Doing my best =)

Thank you so much for this inspirational post. Yes it's true that we should find our purpose first,Take a risk, Let Go and Let God. God bless :)


Thank you for reaching out! When we really question the final why, it is really just a few things left=)

I love this kind of post. This is the thing about what we do with our lives.
Why people think we just have to do a thing and that's it? NO!
We're able to make whatever we want. Limits are defined by ourselves.
We need to understand that life is too short to just do sometime that we don't like.

The problem is that sometimes we are so afraid to do something different that others that we do exactly whatever that people wants form us. That's enough. We should learn everything and when we find what we like, we have to do this, we have to make this the principal point in our lives.


Thank you for the comment! I really appreciate your thoughts on it and I'm happy to have people on the same wave as I am =D

I love the third rule especially where you said (If your purpose comes from pure and good intentions - Universe will push it for you).
This point is oblivious of religion if you ask me because this is where the law of nature and karma comes to play.
Actually I agree that one's priorities and decisions determines his personality and success. Nice one.


Thank you @topfreeser for reading and such an on point comment! I really wish to deliver to people a slightest idea about answers they have to give themselves to reach the final "Why". =)

Ahh yes, i remember that moment when i helped someone realize that the moment was just a little fragment of one's life, and that once you realize you have a future it is an amazing thing. Your whole perspective on life changes, and your past is full of why....
When you realize that What If, and see that there is so much more to life than today, and you are constantly building for tomorrow, because when that person realizes that tomorrow is promised. It is a beautiful thing, and only leads to further happiness, and the only thing holding them back.... well their past and themselves.
