Can any of us claim life without regrets? Probably not.
We all go through this feeling in our lifetime.
In the book “ Believe and Achieve” author Paul Hanna calls it the Rear- vision thinking and explains it.
If you are driving a car and keeping your eyes focused on the rearview mirror, you will find it challenging to reach your destination in one piece.
Instead, if you grab your steering wheel and look ahead, you will negotiate, avoid all obstacles, and reach your destination safely.
He calls this hands-on steering wheel thinking. Life works in the same way.
Regrets can control your mood and make you feel miserable. If you overthink the past, you are likely to be depressed.
Learn from the past and seize the opportunity in front.
“Regret is like tears seeping through closed eyelids.”- Galway Kinnell.
