I’m a big believer in failing forward.
I have no problem making mistakes; I do it all the time.
I also don’t have a problem with admitting my mistakes. (Although that has taken 30 + years to learn) But, I do my best to take every mistake and learn something from it.
If you learned something from the mistake, then you didn’t fail.
If you didn’t get the outcome that you wanted, it just means you’ve got another chance to try.
If it feels like God is shutting a single door, it may mean He’s about to open an entire palace.
Failure is one of life’s best teachers. You’re allowed to feel disappointed and frustrated and upset when you make a big mistake. It’s natural. But what you’re not allowed to do is decide that you’re done trying. You’re also not allowed to let the mistake define you.
We are inching closer and closer to Thanksgiving, and this idea of gratitude and thankfulness seems to be everywhere.
This year, while you are counting your blessings and practicing gratitude for the things that you have and the people that you love, don’t forget to sprinkle a little gratitude over the hard stuff.
Your mistakes have shaped you into the leader you are today. Without them, you wouldn’t know what you know.
The EXPERIENCE IS THE LESSON. The experience is the GIFT.
What’s one mistake you can choose to be grateful for today?
