Don’t think “If I had only done XXX for the last year”, instead think “If I spend the next year doing XXX, just imagine how amazing it will be” (Re-frame your mindset from past-focused to future/present-focused)
I feel like too many times we look back with regret at what we HAVEN’T done in the past.
And that does you little good.
“If I had only started playing guitar 2 years ago when my friend did, I would have been so good by now.”
“If I had only stuck to my diet 6 months back I’d be in such great shape today.”
“If I had only spent the last year being productive instead of spending most of my time distracting myself with games/TV, I would be so much more successful.”
