10 Decisions You'll Never Regret Making

Thursday, October 28, 2021

Life is an endless array of options, opportunities, and paths. We make decisions on a regular basis. Where you live, what job you have, the fact that you're watching this video, it's all choices that led you to this very second. Of course, some decisions are more trivial, but others can completely change the course of your life. Yes, sometimes it's hard to trust that you've made the right choice. However, there are some decisions you surely won't regret making! Here are 10 of them.

 Continuing The Pursuit Of Knowledge.

Education isn't just about a degree or certificate you can hang up on your wall. Chances are you aren't even doing the job you studied for. Nevertheless, it's important that you make learning a priority throughout your life. Whether that's a handy skill, learning an instrument or another language, or taking on a new opportunity, you should constantly challenge yourself to explore and learn.

Saving Money from Each Paycheck

When that direct deposit hits, it's hard not to blow it on brunches, shopping, and that brand new phone. And once all those bills come in the mail, you're left with next to nothing to save. But putting something into your savings each pay period is important. It doesn't have to be thousands of dollars. Just 50 dollars a week will give you 200 at the end of the month and 2,400 at the end of the year. That doesn't sound like much, but it would be more than what you saved last year! As long as you're making progress, you'll thank yourself when you need it.

Pursuing Sobriety

If you have a problem with booze, it's a good idea to think about getting sober. Cutting out alcohol has many benefits from better sleep and more energy to improved eating habits. Yeah, things won't be the same as they used to be. But with dedication and a good support system in place, you'll begin to appreciate and enjoy life more openly and authentically.

Thinking Before Acting

We've all made hasty decisions in the heat of the moment, no shame in admitting that. But you can significantly reduce the number of times you feel regret if you just stop to think. It can prevent you from saying something incredibly hurtful or something you don't mean. It can also stop you from passing up a great opportunity or even plunging into a not-so-great one! Whatever the case, you'll never regret taking a few moments to weigh what you want to do versus what's best to do in a situation.

Standing Your Ground

Do you have a hard time saying no to people? Feel like you're too easy to take advantage of? How many people owe you money right now? Standing up for yourself shows self-respect, and it signals to other people that you can not be messed with. So put an end to people manipulating you or guilt-tripping you by saying no more often.

Establishing Your Independence

Empowerment is a tricky thing. You can't quite do anything you want in your workplace, but for the most part, you should assert your control in other areas of life. Don't let other people's thoughts and emotions distract you from what you want, and don't let yourself believe you always need other people. If someone is holding you back or pulling you down, or you're relying on others for something, it's time to stop that and establish your independence.

Putting Yourself First

Putting yourself first is not selfish. Selfishness means being excessively preoccupied with yourself for your own benefit without consideration for the well-being or interests of others. Putting yourself first simply means that you love yourself enough to make your needs a priority. Constantly prioritizing the happiness of others only builds resentment and takes away from your ability to care for yourself. So take a step back and begin making changes that will result in your own happiness.

Saying "I Love You" and "I'm Sorry" When You Mean It

Life is too short to let things go unsaid, and this is one of those things that if you don't do, you may very well regret. So, show affection when you can, and be humble and remorseful when necessary. This way, you don't have to carry a load of unnecessary guilt for the rest of your life.

Choosing Kindness

This doesn't mean you have to volunteer at food banks and read to children at the hospital. It could be small acts of kindness like holding a door open or helping the elderly. Research shows that being kind to people actually makes us happy and boosts our self-esteem. It also encourages others to be kind. It's a cycle of giving and positivity. Let it start with you!

Maintaining A Work-Life Balance

Making hundreds of thousands of dollars a year is useless if you don't have good health and the time to enjoy that money. That doesn't mean you have to go out and blow all your money on luxury things, but you should take the time to relax and rejuvenate and carve out some self-care time. The physical, emotional, and mental benefits of maintaining a healthy work-life balance are plenty, from giving you time to enjoy friends and family to keeping you fit enough to travel and try new things.
