Daily Word: Occupying Regrets!

Refuel your life with AllHipHop.com’s new “Daily Word” column from Ash’Cash!

Greetings and salutations, my creatures of excellence!

Today's Daily Word is dedicated to occupying regrets! If this was Family Feud and we surveyed 100 people and asked what was the biggest deterrent of success, the number one answer would be fear! Number two? Regrets from the past!! Many of us spend so much time living in yesterday, that we waste our todays while ruining our tomorrows. Having regrets is one of the worst things you can do!! It's a waste of time because of the lack of ability to go back in time! The only thing you have and ever will have control of is TODAY!!!

Spend your time wisely and always remind yourself of that! Anytime when you feel sorry for the past, tell yourself these five words...IT IS WHAT IT IS!!!! Everything happens for a reason, so instead of regretting what happened, figure out what lesson lives in that mistake! Learn from it and vow to never repeat it! That advance knowledge of what not to do will put you ahead of the game all the time!!! It is imperative to make sure you never give energy to things that don't matter!! Today is all that matters!! Do everything you can to make it the best TODAY that you possibly can, then repeat daily!!! The World is Yours, and NOTHING can stop you!!
