In your business and personal life the steps we take after a mistake has happened will determine how successful we will be. It’s doesn’t matter the mistake or outcome. What matters is how we respond to the outcome. If we use it as a learning experience to take different actions in the future we will go a long way toward obtain the desired results.
Since everyone makes mistakes. Even to act of doing nothing can be a mistake. Some people believe that if they don’t try anything then they can make a mistake. That false thinking has cause more emotional and financial problems than just making a mistake and correcting it.
We are designed to make mistakes. Our total being is a complete make up of feed-back loops of continual course corrections. Just the act of picking up a pencil or a raw egg involves hundreds of minute adjustments of left/right, up/down, forward/backward and tight/loose. If you attempt to do it more than once you will notice that each time you do it it’s done slightly different. Since each time is different does that mean that the other times were wrong? No. So stop defining yourself by how you did or didn’t do something “correctly”.
Focus more on what you can learn from it, correct and adjust for the next occurrence and keep moving….
Best Wishes on your Success!
