Being What You Might Have Been…


I have come across several people who have said to me “I might have been a doctor, a nurse, a lawyer or a successful person”. The assertions of such individuals stipulate that, they think the chance of being what they might have been in life is lost.

It is common among us all to think along the above lines when we reflect on certain aspects of our lives. One crucial thing we do not recognize and even if we do, we do not give enough weight is the fact that “it is never too late to be what you might have been”.

Putting in the strength, dedication, focus and subjecting your desire to consistent push is what you need to become what you have always wanted to be and might have been.

Time has little or no effect on us “being what we might have been”, yet we have been deceived to accept that, we cannot be what we might have been today.

“Might have been” suggests omission; that individual has failed to act and as a result does not even know what the outcome would have been if he/she had embarked on a particular journey.

As we start a new week, remember “victory belongs to the most persevering” and “It’s never too late to be what you might have been”. Omission or failing to act in respect of your desire and dreams is what breeds “I might have been”. Act today and become what “you might have been”.

  1. I wish more people would adopt this same way of thinking. There are so many things I want to experience in life as far as my career and personally, and for me, as long as breath is in my body, it will never be too late for me to fulfill my passions!

    Thanks, Kendra
