Prime Years and the Pain of Regret [Limitless MD, Episode 83]


Many of us live our lives assuming that ‘one day’ we will have time to do the things we’ve always dreamed of. Travel the world. Learn a new language. Pursue a passion. The reality is that unless you’re making the most of your prime years between the ages of 25 and 65, there’s a good chance you will experience one of the most devastating emotions there is – the pain of regret.

In this episode of Limitless MD, I talk about facing these facts with a plan, instead of fear or avoidance. Number one: get clarity on what your life goals, your family goals and your ‘bucket list’ pursuits are. 

The time to take steps to avoid the pain of regret is now. If you have the sneaky feeling that you’re not shining as brightly as you could be, this episode is for you. 


“Don’t go to your grave without singing your song. Die on empty.” 

– Dr. Vikram Raya
