It is most likely that we will not be perfect with the initial decisions and the actions that we take in our lives. We can learn by doing and resetting our course from what we have experienced if we are motivated to do so. The formation of regrets may productively serve you as a motivator when perceived rationally.

To have lost a contest as a result of your actions or even inactions affords us the chance to progress. Within sense of regret, we can look first to resolve the deficits and errors to compete again at a higher level. Within a sense of apathy, most people will settle for less rather than excel.

You needn’t live miserably with regret if you decide to learn again from setbacks and apply what you have learned again to improve. Regret should be experienced as a personal accountability to continue on and to evolve for the better as we are doing so.

“Make the most of your regrets; never smother your sorrow, but tend and cherish it till it comes to have a separate and integral interest. To regret deeply is to live afresh.” — Henry David Thoreau —
