Do you hate getting things wrong?

This is October 25th of my book:  ‘How To Change Your Life One Day At ATime‘.

Take the opportunity today to accept your mistakes.

Fortunately for me I’ve never made a mistake in my life!

Yeah right!

It’s a bit of a cliché to say we must learn from our mistakes but here’s the thing – if you become afraid of mistakes you take less risks. If you take less risks it means pushing yourself less. If you push yourself less you’ll achieve less, get less, experience less and ultimately, live less of a life.

Not all of us are bungee jumping, skydiving, white-water-rafting thrill seekers, but, we each have to find our own risk limits. One of those bungee jumpers may be terrified of starting their own company for instance.

So, find your comfort zone, then step outside it a little. Then a little bit more, and so on. When you make a mistake, retrace your steps, find where you went wrong, apply an amended strategy and go again.

Mistakes are our teachers – look forward to meeting them, embrace them, then suck every ounce of wisdom out of them as you can.

It takes a level of commitment and effort – but what worthwhile doesn’t?

  4. Hi Stu, in our office mistakes are used for learning. We are human and we all will make mistakes. Even when the mistake has a very negative outcome we try to do our best to see the positive. Not always easy to do…
