You Could Have Done It Better

Sometimes in life, we all make decisions that change everything. It’s as if your whole life shifts into a completely different track of life, all from a decision you made at what you thought was an insignificant point in your life which turned out to be one of the most massively pivotal junctures in your life. Now, here you are.

If only you could have done it better. If only you knew then what you know now. All that second-guessing and nostalgic rumination, and for what?

Each one of those decisions which were made by based on analysis, emotion, or abruptly in the heat of the moment earmarks a point in time when we could have (if we had the cognisance and intention to do so) made a choice, decision, or taken action based on knowledge, feedback, or a feeling provided to our consciousness from our heart.

Your heart, if you are able to tap into this powerful resource, is the seat of wisdom.

Most of us let our mind, our brain, run everything. If you allow your mind and intellect to dictate all your thoughts and interpretation(s) of your surroundings, you will never hear or feel the still small voice echoing from your intuitive heart consciousness.

For those of us who have taken action based on our intellectual or emotional rationale, or in a knee-jerk reaction to some ancient anchor, in retrospect, there is a part of us which knows we could have done it better. Since the opportunity has passed, it is likely that you will be visited by regret.

Left to itself regret can turn into guilt, but it doesn’t have to. If you can find hidden treasure, the embedded sacred lesson in the event, you can receive the gift of wisdom. Storing this blessed data in your consciousness can help you to live a better life. Faced with a similar circumstance or decision in the future, you can refer back to this lesson and do better next time.

Your experience may be beneficial to someone else who you see in a similar situation.

Accept responsibility for your responses or actions, which you could have done better, in the past. This was all “you” in your glory of simply being human. Extract the educational value in the event, realize you could have done it better, and vow to do it better next time. Accept responsibility and change. Have gratitude for the event, love it, and leave the past behind. Let it go.

To allow yourself to be haunted by something you did in the past is abusive. If you can learn from your mistakes, your self-abuse is never justified. Love and forgive yourself, if necessary. Love it and let it go.

The divine reality of it all is that you really never do anything wrong. Certainly, there are things you could have done better, but anything that changes your course in life in some radical way always leads to growth and expansion.

You find yourself exposed to unlimited possibilities of new life when you are transported to an entirely new path and perspective.

While you may not be able to see it from your current vantage point, in the not too far off future, you will be able to look back at these pivotal events in your life and see the divine order of it all.

Every misstep, every bad decision, emotional response, injustice, broken heart, or hurt feeling is calling you to exponential greater opportunities, allowing you to live a better life, your best life, and make the world a better place.

How’s This Year Gone for You?

You are heading into the final lap of the year, and if you’re like me, you take some time out to reflect the progress you’ve made over the last year.

How is this year different or better than last year?

What have you done to make adjustments, to be a better person, to live a better life, and potentially make the world a better place?

Have you achieved your highest and best and been true to fulfilling your purpose? Did you share your message, embrace your passion, and perform your mission in life?

If you desire to have a highly productive and successful life, you have the best of intentions, but the intention is not enough to make the significant changes you desire to make in your relationships, your career, your health and financial well-being, or to live your best life.

You need to take action.

What good are your dreams or desires if you are not moving closer to them?

Your dreams are valid. So valid, in fact, that in the moment you dreamt or visualized the life you want, it was manifested and made so. That vision is just as real as you and I are, you only have to move from where you are to where the life you dream of waits for you… and it’s a lot closer than you might think.

You know where you are, and you know where you want to be. All you have to do is to move closer to what you want a little bit each day. At the very least, every year you could be 365 steps closer to where you want to be. Now, that might not be enough to get you from here to there, depending on the average size of those steps. Not to worry. Even if they were the smallest of baby steps, after a year, you can look back and clearly see the cumulative effect of each step.

You are closer to having everything that you’ve ever wanted than you were last year.

In my life, I am blessed to be working with people who are proactively making major steps to achieving their highest and best, living their best lives, and making the world a better place. This is my mission.

Whether my ministry is labeled coaching, consulting, or counseling, being in the room with someone when they have a breakthrough or epiphany is the icing on the cake of the work I do. For me, or anyone in my line of work, this is the blessing; it’s what makes it all worth it.

Why might you seek out someone like me to join you on your journey to a better life?

Because by this time next year, you want to look back and see the massive change, maybe have many breakthroughs and epiphanies yourself.

If you want more control over your life, to map out, plan, and execute strategies to achieve your goals, whatever they may be, you will be far ahead of the game if you have a coach, not unlike an Olympic athlete, acting as your accountability partner.

Other benefits include better management of your resources, discovering and exercising your unique gifts, skills, talents and special abilities, thereby maximizing your potential.

Improving your relationships, increasing your social value in the community, seizing opportunities, and making the best decisions along the way. Living your life with less stress, better health, more happiness, excitement, and satisfaction from achieving your highest and best.

You can do this on your own, or you can do it better with third-party support.

Don’t be looking back next year thinking that you might have made better progress if you had a little support, felt better about yourself, had more energy, more time, more money, better friends, or had been born into a more successful family.

Life can be overwhelming, full of things that could distract you, potentially get in the way, or throw you completely off-track, derailing your best efforts to make better progress.

Sometimes it looks like life has the deck stacked against you, maybe it feels like success is not even within your grasp and you’re feeling like you just cannot see light at the end of what appears to be an endless dark tunnel separating you from what you want.

Don’t believe the lies.

You are closer to what you want than you might think.
