Hanging onto every word: South African speaker goes viral with incredible piece of advice!

With nearly 7 million views, this simple piece of advice about regret may be the most important thing you see today!


Richard Mulholland has gained almost 7 million views with a 2 minute video talking about regret.

Mulholland kicked off his career as a rock n roll roadie, operating lights for bands such as Iron Maiden and Def Leppard. From there he started South Africa’s largest presentation firm, Missing Link and co-founded 21Tanks, South Africa’s first perspective lab.

He is a highly regarded international speaker, he’s written books, spent time on various radio and TV shows and has also started a Youtube channel that is quickly gaining traction.

His talk which was originally featured on the “Suits and Sneakers” platform was picked up by Goalcast, an international Facebook page which shares inspirational videos everyday, and shared with millions around the world!

“Imagine sitting there 60 years later regretting something you didn’t do! You’re writing a check made out to regret… and that check, you will have to pay one day.”

Crafted into a beautiful clip, the advice is clear: It’s far better to live with the regret of the mistakes you have made than to die with the regret of never having tried!
