The Worst Mistake You Will Make In Life
Everyone has a journey in life that takes them from birth all through the days until their death, hoping that each day they do not make the worst mistake in their life.
That journey takes you and I are upon takes us down many roads and towards the great journey that arises with each new sun, and the contentment of knowing you have survived the day and you can rest waiting for the great adventure of tomorrow.
But usually when lying down at night one wonders if they made a mistake during the events of the day, and many hope that they didn’t make the worst mistake they could have made in life.
Of all the decisions you make everyday, I wonder if you ask yourself the same question I ask myself each night.
Did I make a mistake today? Do I fight the good fight well enough. Oh God, I hope I didn’t make the worst mistake I could have made in my life?
We wake up every morning faced with different propositions and different options?
The attitude we will carry into our day.
Which way we will drive to work, church, school, or where ever.
What we will eat? Where we will eat? Do we take the job promotion? Do we leave early from work or the days activities to go down another road towards something else?
Everyone of those decisions has the possibility of being the worst mistake you will make in life, but never make the mistake of thinking that the decisions you make are the worst.
Every change and every option before you is a decision that you will need to make, want to make, or be forced to make, and it’s not those decisions that are the worst decisions you make.
The worst mistake you will ever make, are the decisions that you put off and choose not to make.
Probably the greatest example that we can all relate to is being in elementary school and liking someone, but making the decision to not to act, only to find out later in life, they would have accepted our friendship, as they too liked us in return.
Do you want to change your life for the better, but don’t make the decision to do it. Not making that decision is the worst one you will make.
Should you call a loved one you haven’t spoken to in years due to some slight or fault of your own or theirs? But you never make the decision to pick up the phone, swallow your pride and make the call. The decision to not do it, will be a mistake that you will regret and consider one of the worst mistakes you made in life.
The decisions that we ponder over as we lay awake at night and regret usually aren’t the ones we made during the day, although there may be regret and remorse for some of those decisions.
You and I both lay awake at night and wonder and dream about the decisions we didn’t make.
The people we could have connected with we didn’t, because of timidity.
The business that would create a lifetime of passive income that we put off for foolish reasons of what will people think if I do that.
The great dream and passions in your heart that you know are there by the goodness of God that you never act on. How dreadful to lay awake and wonder about the dreams of God in our heart that we made the mistake of not pursuing!
So stop it!
Stop making the worst mistake! The mistake of not deciding to pursue your dreams, your passions, and your heart.
Don’t spend another night in bed wondering what if? What could have been? I wish I…. and with that you can fill in the blank.
QUIT making the worst mistake you will make in life!
Make the decision now to never make the worst decision again…
Life isn’t lived by the indecisive, but by those who plot their course, gather their belongings, board the ship… and then cast off! The indecisive only exist, and never taste of the beauty of life.
Here’s hoping you continually make the decisions that lead to the life you dream of!
