Tuesday speaker's 4 00:00:29.460 --> 00:00:34.299 corner and we welcome Jim Roan back to the show. And Jim tells us 5 00:00:35.020 --> 00:00:40.009 the worst thing one can do is not to try to be aware of what 6 00:00:40.250 --> 00:00:45.850 one wants and not give in to it, to spend years in silent hurt, 7 00:00:46.689 --> 00:00:54.960 wondering if something could have materialized, never knowing. Back in the day, 8 00:00:56.240 --> 00:01:00.159 many days ago, at this point, when I was in high school, 9 00:01:00.880 --> 00:01:08.069 I discovered that I was a Thespian. Although my singing dreams were quashed, 10 00:01:08.189 --> 00:01:15.790 at least at this point, it wasn't enough to quash my love of 11 00:01:15.989 --> 00:01:25.420 performing, to quash my love being on the stage. There wasn't any professional 12 00:01:25.700 --> 00:01:32.060 theater where I lived in and no movie or no TV industry. But about 13 00:01:32.099 --> 00:01:38.530 a month before I left for basic training, a new dinner theater group had 14 00:01:38.609 --> 00:01:46.890 started up and they were actually paying their performers. Two weeks before I left 15 00:01:47.920 --> 00:01:53.799 for basic I landed and audition with them, and I remember at this point 16 00:01:53.840 --> 00:02:00.430 I had already sworn into the military and there was no getting out of going. 17 00:02:01.950 --> 00:02:07.270 But I just I had to know. Could I have gotten apart? 18 00:02:08.229 --> 00:02:15.509 was I good enough to get a part in a professional show? It's one 19 00:02:15.550 --> 00:02:21.180 thing to get a part in community theater, another thing to get a professional 20 00:02:21.419 --> 00:02:25.780 part. A study out of Cornell University back in one thousand nine hundred and 21 00:02:25.780 --> 00:02:35.250 ninety five shows that it's the things that people haven't done that generate the greatest 22 00:02:35.449 --> 00:02:43.370 regret. We end up regretting that we didn't live our true lives, that 23 00:02:43.490 --> 00:02:50.560 we didn't live up to our full potential. We regret not becoming the person 24 00:02:50.759 --> 00:02:58.560 we dreamed of becoming, all because we were too scared to try. We're 25 00:02:58.629 --> 00:03:02.990 going to regret the book we didn't try to write. We're going to regret 26 00:03:04.229 --> 00:03:09.830 the business idea that we didn't go after, that opportunity that came our way 27 00:03:10.750 --> 00:03:17.740 that we were just too afraid to jump at. But I do have some 28 00:03:17.900 --> 00:03:25.460 good news, my friend. There are still time to avoid these regrets. 29 00:03:28.050 --> 00:03:34.770 You are worthy of having the life that you dream you were worthy of the 30 00:03:35.169 --> 00:03:39.889 best that life has to offer. But you have to try, me, 31 00:03:40.050 --> 00:03:50.360 Amigo, you have to go for it. Remember that beer is temporary, 32 00:03:51.599 --> 00:03:57.509 but regret is forever. We're going to have some regrets in our lives. 33 00:03:58.030 --> 00:04:01.629 That's the way life is. I have a couple, but you don't have 34 00:04:01.789 --> 00:04:11.259 to live with the regret of never try it. We can change that and 35 00:04:11.419 --> 00:04:16.620 we can change it tomorrow just by trying. By the way, I did 36 00:04:16.699 --> 00:04:21.139 get offered apart, not only in that show but the one after it. 37 00:04:23.819 --> 00:04:30.850 I don't regret not being able to take those parts because if I don't try 38 00:04:30.009 --> 00:04:38.800 out and get those parts, maybe I don't have enough confidence to sing while 39 00:04:38.839 --> 00:04:44.560 I'm polishing my boots. And you all know where that lad, all you 40 00:04:44.639 --> 00:04:48.600 have to do is try car pay momentum. I'll talk to you tomorrow.
