Most everyone has done a thing or two in their lives that they ultimately ended up wishing they hadn’t done.  If you aren’t one of those people, congratulations on living the perfect life!  For the rest of us, I want to touch on a few things to address and correct while there’s still time.

We often hear that it’s never too late to do the things you’ve always wanted or become the person you’ve always wanted to be. Realistically though, time keeps moving even if we are standing still. If no action is ever taken, eventually, it will be too late.

If you can relate to anything on this list, you may want to change your path.

Not starting your business.

Becoming a business owner is not for everyone, but anyone can do it. It’s definitely possible, but does take hard work, dedication and consistency. If you’ve been thinking and dreaming about becoming the CEO of your own company, you should at least try. Some people let their dreams slip away because of procrastination or fear.  I speak this from experience. Even if you don’t want to go all out and open up a brick and mortar establishment, there are other options available such as online stores, blogging or even direct sales.  Some men and women become so successful in direct sales to the point they are able to obtain and maintain a very comfortable lifestyle. There are so many resources available to help you get started. Don’t sleep on your dreams.

Neglecting your skin.

It’s easier to prevent skin damage than it is to correct it and with that, not all damage is reversible. Do yourself favor and start taking care of your skin now! Actions such as sleeping in makeup, excessive tanning and picking at congested skin is destructive.  See your dermatologist for any medical skin concerns and visit a reputable esthetician regularly.  Esthetician appointments are like gym workouts.  The use of effective, quality products is the at-home maintenance. A healthy lifestyle is equally if not more important when it comes to great skin.  Start taking measures today to ensure you’re happy with your skin later on in life.

Struggling to keep up with the Joneses.

Trying to acquire everything other people have can land you in a bad place financially. This behavior also leads to jealousy, hatred and discontent.  It’s fine to look to others for inspiration, but don’t be so obsessed until you get distracted and lose sight of your own goals and dreams. Also, remember that we often only see one side of someone else’s story.  The only person worth competing with is yourself.

Not keeping up with dental hygiene.

I don’t know about anyone else, but I’d like to hold on to all of my teeth for as long as possible. Your smile is one of the best features you have.  Failing to take care of your teeth and gums can lead to cavities, lost teeth and may cause health issues such as heart disease. Brush your teeth, floss, and have dentist check-ups regularly.

Wasting time trying to make people like you.

I’ve struggled with this one in the past. What I’ve found to be interesting is that the people who I felt I wanted or needed to love or like me, actually were not worthy of my time. Be it friends, family or whomever, don’t waste energy trying to make anyone accept you. The truth is, you can’t. It’s not healthy or effective to hold on to failed or one-sided relationships. If a person shows that they don’t want to be a part of your life, let them go.

Declining the opportunity to visit another country.

Travel is essential. It’s more valuable than material possessions, and it’s a great way to expand your mind. Just think about how many different people and destinations there are in the world. The first time I flew in an airplane, I was six years old. That was over 35 years ago, and I still remember every detail of that trip. I knew then I wanted to see more of the world. Don’t confine yourself one place. If you get the chance to experience another country, take it. You’ll never be the same.
