Without Regret: Be More, See More, Achieve More That Really Matters by J. Michael Godfrey, DMin, PhD, PCC is a realistic approach to one of the problems that stand in the way of the pursuit of happiness and a fulfilling life in people — regret. I felt connected with the message from the very start of this book and many readers will definitely feel the same. “You’ve worked hard and have some achievements under your belt, yet you feel a quiet sadness or disappointment over lost opportunities, superficial relationships, missed moments with friends and family, or things you’ve said or done.” We can so easily get stuck in regret that we fail to identify and explore the opportunities that life offers us. But it shouldn’t be so. In this compelling work, the author offers powerful insights, teaching stories, and a step-by-step guide on how to beat regret and reconnect with what we really want.

This is one of the best books I have read on personal change and creating a meaningful life. J. Michael Godfrey writes with unusual fluidity, weaving relevant examples into his message and communicating the hope that readers can overcome regret and reach out for the things they have always wanted. The writing is exceptional and the voice irresistible. Without Regret: Be More, See More, Achieve More That Really Matters is the book for you if you want to put the past behind you and start doing work that really matters. This is a powerful tool for those who want to experience inner freedom and resolutely embrace the life they were created to live.
