“The only things I regret… are the things I didn’t do.”-Joe Karbo. So live life with no regrets.
When I was in college, my football coach was the type of person that you wanted to be around…one that was passionate about his job and his life. He was great at getting the “best” out of you.
He would say to never look back after a practice or a game and think… “I could have given more”, or “I could have been better”, or “I REGRET…”
Recently I reconnected with this coach and he is still motivating athletes to be their best. His words carried a profound meaning in my life, and his words are something that I strive to live by…”Live with No Regrets.”
I make sure my wife and my kids know I love them each and every day. They receive hugs and kisses each morning before I head out to work and at night as I lay them down for bed. I tell them how much I love them each and everyday. I will live this part of my life with No Regrets.
When I worked outside of the home, I made sure that when I showed up to work or participate in any function, it is with an open heart. I put forth 100% of my effort and my time, no matter what. I made sure to greet my co-workers with a smile each morning and continue to work and grow the relationships in my life. Now that I work at home, with my wife, it is no different. I will live this part of my life with No Regrets.
I make sure to set a good example for my children and help others when in need. Growing up my parents devoted a lot of time to my brother and I, so I chose to do the same with my kids. I WILL be my kids coach (literally- I coach all of their sports), their mentor, and always strive to be their super hero. I will always be there to assist with any problems they may have…to listen and not to judge. I will live this part of my life with No Regrets.
I make sure to treat others with respect and be a leader for my children. I will try my best to teach them right from wrong and not get lost in the shuffle of life. I will lead by example and I will teach my kids to to do the same. I will live this part of my life with No Regrets.
I make sure to honor my wife each and every day. I always stay true to my vows…”to love and to cherish, in good times and bad.” I will let her know how beautiful, smart, and proud I am of her and how happy I am that she is my wife. I will work hard to be the best version of me, so in return she is proud of me. I will live this part of my life with No Regrets.
I will not look back at the things in my life and imagine what could have been, or what could I have done different. Live life the way you want. Live life with No Regrets.
