Taking advantage of oppurtunities

Throughout my life I've had oppurtunities come my way, be it relationships or whatever but I always seem to let most of them slip by. I always freeze when a moment comes and I never take advantage of them. I also obsess over almost every one of these missed oppurtunities because I always recognize that there was one when its too late.
How do I make myself take advantage of situations at the right time?
Also, how do I stop obsessing over the past?
Does anyone else do this?

There is no use at all obsessing over the past unless you can study it & learn something & even then you got to DO something in the end. I know this doesn't really offer a solution to how to motivate to act but that's what needs to happen. It's the inaction that causes all this so maybe the advice is to start small with something that's not so intimidating & build up. It's great when you can act on opportunities. It's worth doing.
