What are the biggest regrets from your youth? What would you have done differently from now?

I am not sure if I am qualified for this, considering the fact that I am still quite young, but I would like to mention my regrets for the things I should have done in my adolescence and early adulthood:

1-  I should have played less soccer and studied a little bit more. I mean, I was a very good student, at least before High School, but I think that I wasted too much time playing this stupid sport – I thought that I could be a soccer player one day. As soon as I realized that I couldn’t be rich and famous as Romário, Ronaldo, Rivaldo and the other ones were, I quit soccer. Therefore, if I could go back in time, I would say to myself (my younger version), “you’ll never gonna make it. Stop now”.

2-  I think I would learn how to play another musical instrument. I do love music, so it would make me feel better today. I mean, I can play the guitar, but I wish I could play the piano, the keyboards, and the drums.

3-  I think I would join the army and do the military service. I think it would have provided me with more discipline – which is a very good thing.

4-  I would take more risks. I have taken a lot of risks in my life, but looking back now, I would say that I should have taken more risks in order to learn more – especially in fields that I didn’t (I still don’t) know a lot things about (Mathematics, Physics, Law, Chemistry, cooking…)
I must have chosen my words poorly, but I really would like to know: Hypothetically, if you had the opportunity to go back in time, what would you do differently? What are the biggest regrets from your youth?

I would like to encourage you to think about yourself – the Past You and the Present You – and write some comments here – come one! It may be fun.
