My client referred a friend to me but told me, “This person’s finances are in deep sh*t. She needs a review of her insurance n investment portfolio but very very unlikely to get anything. Do you want her contact? ”
I told her to pass her my number and contact me anytime. To cut the story short, we met up and it was a bad situation but maybe not end of the world situation yet. I won’t be disclosing the case due to P&C reasons.
While going thru the stuffs, she said, ” I wished I had a rewind button so I won’t be in this situation. ” I replied, ” Instead of asking for a rewind button, why not you work on the play button or better still, a fast forward button to get you out of this situation ASAP? Sitting here, going thru these… You are working on it. ”
It is common that people always think “If only…then… “. My point is there is no point crying over spilled milk or over things beyond our control. I won’t be surprised that with a rewind button, a person will still be in the situation because the person had not change n decision made is still the same.
Let us change what we can and that’s “US”. With that change, we change the future.
