A blackboard stood in the middle of New York City asking passersby to write down their biggest regret. At first, each regret seemed unique and different. But after all, all of us have different story. As the board filled up, we noticed that all of these responses had one alarming thing in common.


Check out the video to see the surprising reveal.



“In the end, we only regret the chances we didn’t take, the relationships we were afraid to have, and the decisions we took too long to make.” — Ritu Ghatourey


What’s your biggest regret and why you shouldn’t regret any decision?


I could talk whole day about my biggest failures and struggles, which were part of my business and career. I could tell you about how I failed with my friends and family, and about all the wrong decisions that I made in my life. But I will never tell that I regret any of the decisions that I made, as wrong as they might have been.


Albert Einstein once said, “Insanity: doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.” As long as we’re able to correct our mistakes without having to repeat them again and again we are on a right path.


#1 — It’s better to try and fail than to never try at all


The fear of failure is a huge inhibitor of action in life.


biggest regret

The truth about failure is that the fear of it, is far greater than the failure itself. People spend so much time in a state of fear, worrying about everything, living their lives steeped in anxiety, engulfed in stress. The direct reflection of the mental, emotional, and spiritual pressure of the fear of failure puts us under negative emotional situation.


It’s far better to take a chance. Calculated risks are necessary in life and doesn’t mean we have to throw complete caution to the wind.


It just means that is much better to take the risk while you can and do not regret about the outcome.


Because if you don’t try it today you will regret to the rest of your life.
