Today I want to talk about the phrase “could have done” and why I really hate hearing those three words in that order.
Instead of thinking “I could’ve done this or that,” ask yourself “what can I do in the future to do this better? How can I prevent a certain problem from happening again? How can I improve my situation?”
Asking yourself what you could have done gives you feelings of regret and probably brings up negative emotions. When you look at what you can do in the future, you invoke feelings of hope and positivity.
You can’t change the past. But you can act in the present to change your life today and shape your future.
