You’re never too old to make changes in your life

When looking back at what you’ve done, it’s easy to determine what you would do differently if you could. Although the past is over, you should use the insights it provides in order to ensure you are now on your desired path.
You’re never too old to make adjustments. You don’t want to regret tomorrow something you didn’t do today. Let’s take a look at some common aspects of life which frequently cause regrets when overlooked.
Follow your dreams. Find reasons to do so. Eliminate excuses which are stopping you. Stop procrastinating. That which is put off until tomorrow rarely gets accomplished. Today is the day to take the first step toward your desired path. You don’t want to be haunted later in life because you didn’t go for something you really wanted.
Trust your instincts. That strong intuition is trying to tell you something. Don’t ignore that gut feeling telling you to do, or not to do something. Your subconscious mind is more sensitive to indicators than the conscious mind.
Spend enough time with those you love and care about. Too often, those closest to you are taken for granted. These relationships are priceless. They should be treated as the valuable aspects of your life that they are. Check to make sure you are making these relationships a top priority.
Put in the effort required to maintain important relationships. A spouse, children, family, friends, and loved ones all require your active participation. Look for what you can contribute to each relationship.
Although having a strong work ethic is commendable, allowing work to dominate your life throws you out of balance. Don’t allow work to rob you of time you should be spending with those you care most about.
Your children grow up fast. Be sure to maintain a healthy work/life balance so you don’t later wish you should have spent less time at work.
Devote less time to worrying. It’s like being in a rocking chair. You expend energy on a lot of activity which doesn’t get you anywhere. Instead of worrying, take action to fix any problems you are facing.
Spend more time being happier. Have fun. Engage in enjoyable activities. Connect with other positive, happy people. Appreciate all of the blessings in your life by maintaining an attitude of gratitude. Having a sense of humor is an effective way of dealing with stress.
Follow your own path. Ignore peer pressure. Disconnect from negative people. Don’t listen to naysayers. Don’t worry about what others say, think, or do. Say no to requests that don’t fit in to where you want to go. Be kind and considerate. Treat others with courtesy and respect.
Don’t blame other people or circumstances. Be proactive. Instead of waiting for things to happen, make them happen. If you want things to change, make different decisions.
Taking good care of your health enhances your quality of life now and in the future. It’s never too early or too late to form good habits. People who neglect their physical well-being suffer needlessly.
Live for today. Learn from the past. Prepare for tomorrow. Lamenting what’s already happened or worrying about what might happen in the future accomplishes nothing. Now is what is important.
