GRAND RAPIDS, Mich.- Do you have regrets in life? Sometimes we make excuses for missing out on things but how do we move past and look at the actual problem? Kathi Jo DeYoung ofJoyous Journey shows us how.

To switch from an attitude of regret to resolve we need to have a call of action/attitude for ourselves:

1. Start with “I” statements…

I will

I realize

I plan

“I” statements give people the power to go from “regret to resolve” whether you are at home or at work.  You can pass this tool on to your kids, friends and co workers.

Use your “I” statements to define your regret, then start with “to do” steps and do something about the situation.

2. Define what went wrong. .

I didn’t plan . . ex.for summer vacation. . .

I didn’t look for options. . .

I didn’t understand what was expected of me…

3. Then DO something positive!

Start today by resolving to become an active participant in your own life.. . .for the benefit of yourself, your friends, your family and your work!

What could be finer than a happily fulfilled life focused on the resolve to make every day better than the last!
