Like I mentioned before, we are fearful of efforts in vain, because probably there’s this belief in scarcity and somehow in the recesses of our mind, we’re afraid of squandering ourselves, our finite resources.
We’d rather not try. Because we can continue to enjoy the thought that we have the potential, if only we put in the effort to try, we definitely would get it. It was a choice not to achieve what we could have. And then the very same thought morphs into regret after the window of opportunity to exert the effort disappears. Or at least when we perceive it is gone. So why don’t pre-empt all that and just get started already?
Best day to do it was 10 years ago. Next best day is today.
