How to survive your mistakes

February 27, 2019By

What if I told you that it’s impossible for you to make a mistake?  

Did you give a sigh of relief?

Did you think, “Yeah right … I just made a huge mistake yesterday!”

Or maybe you thought …”Valeri … you’re dreaming, but go on, I’m listening …”

Let me offer a new way of looking at your so-called mistake.

A perspective that lets you off the hook, from the self-inflicted negative talk that you may have with yourself, (usually started by your inner critic).

Things like:

How could I have screwed up like that?

I can’t believe I did that!

What a [insert negative noun] I am!

If you’ve been caught in the downward spiral that comes after you’ve made what you thought to be a mistake, this video is for you!

I offer you another way of looking at what happened.

A positive perspective that shows you the true magic behind your “mistakes”.

 

I prefer to see a mistake as a learning experience, a way of guiding me along other paths.  

Your progress and growth will be stunted if you retreat every time you make a mistake.  

Think of Thomas Edison.

Edison made 1,000 unsuccessful attempts at inventing the light bulb. If he had thought about the first attempt as a mistake, (or failure), we’d be sitting in the dark!

Don’t let your mistakes stop you in your tracks.

Instead acknowledge it happened, learn from it, and move forward.

NOW IT’S YOUR TURN

What have you learned from your mistakes?
