How to live your life with NO regrets

“Regrets, I’ve had a few….”

Ahhh, the song says it well.

But – most of us have had at least 1 tiny one in life, so how can we live a life without regret?

I’ve just been live on air with BBC Radio talking about the UK’s top regrets.

Here’s 3 of them:

1. Not keeping in touch with old friends

2. Not taking the plunge in a romance

3. Not pursuing a better paid job

Regret number 3 comes up a lot when coaching, as does one of the most common regrets of the dying in the famous book written by #BronnieWare, which is this:

‘I wish I’d had the courage to live a life true to myself, not the life others expected of me’

Those of you who know me, know that I’m honest and get  straight to the point (is that a #Yorkshire thing?) , so here are some tips to break the cycle of regret…

Ask yourself:

1. Am I prepared to let this (any) opportunity pass me by?

2. What’s really holding me back?

3. How can I overcome it and take action RIGHT NOW?

And, if I were coaching you, I’d be saying:

  • Learn from the past, stop overthinking
  • Change ‘One Day’ into ‘Day One’
  • We THINK we have time, but we don’t
  • Moving out of your comfort zone is a catalyst to living without regrets. 

 Live the life YOU want, you’re in charge


Straightforward, straight talking
