There’s a common misconception that once you’re successful, you no longer have to take risks and you’ll have no regrets. In theory, there’s less to worry about when you’ve established yourself. All of your problems are behind you, after all.

But the truth is, no matter where you are in life, the journey continually takes courage. If you believe in never-ending self-growth, becoming stagnant will be one of your top concerns—and you may live the rest of your life in regret if that happens.

If you want to achieve the success you desire, you need to consciously learn how to make the right decisions that will, in turn, eliminate the chance of regret.

To make things worse, growth can actually be more intimidating when you’ve built a successful business around yourself. There’s more at stake, more to lose, and more to regret if things go wrong.

What if your current business no longer feels fulfilling?

What if you’re not having as much fun?

What if there are other interests you’ve always wanted to explore?

What if part of you feels that you’re not going as big as you could go?

What if you regret the decisions you’ve made with your business?

What if you regret how you’ve spent your time during the best years of your life?

How, at the peak of your success, do you bravely forge ahead into the next unknown?

There will always be another Ceiling of Complexity to break through in your life as an entrepreneur. So how can you trust that you’re always making the right decision, especially if it seems out of sync with your current path?

How can you live your life and lead your business without regrets?

We’re going to discuss how to use your Unique Ability to make the right decisions and eliminate regret as you progress in your business and your life. Learning how to properly utilize this technique is the simplest way to eliminate bad decisions and regret from your life entirely.

“Unique Ability helps you rethink who you think you are.” Leonard Rego

Unique Ability is at the core of who you are naturally, and it’s what we rely on in Strategic Coach to guide us in making our most transformational decisions without regret.

It’s how we find honesty with ourselves about what we really want out of our future. This may seem straightforward, but the reality is that learning how to be honest with yourself is harder than it appears. And when you aren’t honest with yourself, you make the wrong decisions, which you ultimately regret later in life.

So, when you look at this question of how to live without regrets, the answer becomes simple: The easiest way to live without regrets is to focus on your Unique Ability and let it guide your decisions.

We asked two entrepreneurs in The Strategic Coach Program to share their personal journeys in discovering their Unique Ability.

Here’s how it changed their perspectives, opened up their worlds, showed them how to live without regrets, and became the grounding force for their next leaps of faith:

Leonard Rego: “My Unique Ability is learning; taking charge; understanding deeply; thinking laterally, conceptually, and strategically; peering into a brand’s soul, distilling its essence, and telling its story to the world; communicating elegantly and with influence; pioneering and reengineering solutions; multitasking fluidly; and giving my thinking, time, and money generously and with ‘irrational’ compassion—with a sense of invincibility—in order to optimize growth and every situation, create value all around, live without regrets, and have a positive impact on humanity.”

Chad Meisinger: “My Unique Ability is transforming visions into reality. I can see a bright future in my mind as a 3D IMAX motion picture. I understand how to address challenges and opportunities through systems and automation, scene by scene, like solving a puzzle. I achieve my dreams without regret by building loyal teams of carefully arranged individuals who are encouraged with love to live out their God-given talents.”

Learning how to define your personal brand.

“The Unique Ability session was one of the only times I’ve set aside to think about what my strengths were and put those down in writing. It’s funny because I do that for a living, for all the brands I work with, but I’ve never actually done that for myself. I’ve never thought about what comprised my personal brand. And that helped me consolidate what I always knew about myself but never actually expressed.” Leonard Rego

Learning how to operate with clarity.

“Discovering your Unique Ability is like walking into a room, and when you first walk in, the whole room looks perfect. But then when you clean a spot, all of a sudden through contrast, you can tell the whole room is dirty. After going through this process, I had total clarity on what areas of my life needed to be changed. This was the biggest shift I saw in myself.” Chad Meisinger

Learning how to live without regrets.

“Unique Ability shows you how to rethink who you are. If you have a certain identity that doesn’t serve you, it’s by learning your Unique Ability that you know who you truly are. It’s one of the most amazing tools you can use. I think a lot of entrepreneurs start their businesses and then they’re just involved in the day-to-day, and suddenly their business is growing and they’re not. They just stop at some point and they regret the decisions they’ve made. But when you have Unique Ability in your tool kit and you know what you’re really great at, you can continue to grow in that direction forever without regrets.” Leonard Rego

“We grew up with nothing, and my mindset was always: you have to work really hard to get where you want to go. My dad joked around on his business card that he was Chief Cook and Bottle Washer, which was him trying to say he’d do whatever to get the job done. And I remember early on in my career, I had to be the one constantly doing everything because I wanted everyone to feel there was no job too little or big for me. The challenge is, that’s obviously not the best use of your time. And Unique Ability validated that for me.” Chad Meisinger

Learning how to be intentional.

“The biggest impact that discovering my Unique Ability has had on me is extreme intentionality. It’s freed up my time, and I have more intentionality and fewer regrets around what I do with that time. And in terms of my relationships, I’ve had this sudden awakening of the few moments that you have with those you’re closest to. And, how do you use more intentionality to enrich those moments and have more of those moments without regrets?” Chad Meisinger

“The moment you’ve arrived is the perfect time to start out again.” Dan Sullivan

Your future will never be clear-cut, and your next move will always be accompanied by fear, excitement, and the potential for regret. But the most rewarding things always are.

If you simply use your Unique Ability as your compass, you will learn how to understand yourself in the deepest way. You’ll be able to get in touch with your brilliant talents and the “why” that drives you, learn how to live without regrets, and carve out the right path…

It will guarantee that you’re always staying close to your best self and making the right decisions. But most importantly, growth won’t seem so complicated because the answers to what to strive toward next will become so much more obvious. You’ll be able to move forward without feelings of regret for making the wrong decision or not going down the “other” path.

This is how to live your most rewarding and fulfilling life. It’s by getting in touch with who you really are so you can have your biggest, most purposeful impact on the world, with no regrets.
