If you could go back and change one part of your life, what would it be and why?
That’s the question renowned Motivational speaker Brian Tracy asked. Here I share excerpts as his audience chimed in their response.
- I would change nothing. Without them I would not be who I am today. Both good and bad situations have shaped me to be this person in this way.
- Overcoming needless fear
- Getting married to my husband in the 20’s
- Nothing, except for not having taken action earlier to start my online business
- No way would I go back to ‘rethink’ the risks I’ve taken’ they are called risks for a reason. You must be ready to risk it for the biscuit
- Being afraid to speak up
- Give all the books that I read about wealth
- Wish I never quit sports (still went to the gym, but quit football) right before turning 16. Lost a lot of social connection and overall fun
- I would read more books at an early age
- Wouldn’t change anything. Valuable lessons learned from every success and detour
- If I could get a chance to go back in time I would have changed my mindset in my 10th class and think about changing and helping people lives especially children. Thinking towards their growth and success. Focusing on building more independent owners in life
- Reading books and developing myself as a teenager before waiting until my late 20’s
- Spiritual, because everything is derived from it
- I was raised to be obedient – no questions asked. I would go back and rebel at things I knew wasn’t right for me even if I got punishment.
- Nothing. All good things build on top of the past
- The worst parts of my life are the parts that changed me the most today. I can tell you right now that if the singly worst thing that happened to me hadn’t happened, my husband and I wouldn’t be together. It’s not worth changing my past.
- Stop partying years ago
- If it meant I could have my son back who I lost about 22 years ago at the age of 17, I would roll back time and do things much differently as my entire perspective on life changed after losing and then surviving the loss of a child. Because that is not possible, I can say that the person I’ve become out of the ashes of horrible grief, despair and anger is someone that I truly like when I look in a mirror
- Taking better care of others and myself
- I wouldn’t change a thing
There you have it. Thoughts shared by the public. Are your thoughts the same? Would you change anything? Do share. We would love to hear.
