Embrace Mistakes – Create Your Own Mistake Binder


We’ve been conditioned by our education system that mistakes are bad. Too many mistakes and you can fail a course. Too many failed courses and you could find yourself being left behind a grade. This system continues in the workplace, where mistakes often mean lost revenue. Too many mistakes and you receive a bad review. Too many bad reviews and you could find yourself on the unemployment line. It’s a system focused on the negative. No wonder so many of us wallow in negative mindsets as adults. Mistakes should be embraced. They represent the true learning experiences. The only real purpose in focusing on mistakes is to learn from them and then move on to make more mistakes, and then continue to embrace each one like a precious learning experience. The truly best mistakes are the huge ones. They offer the best learning experience. Mistakes should be encouraged and met with positive emotions, not anger. After learning how the wealthy embrace their mistakes, I made a point in my own business and life to embrace mistakes, write them down and cherish them. I now keep a binder on all of the mistakes I make and then list next to each one the right thing I should have done. Start your own Mistake Binder today. Review it once a month so the education is reinforced. When we learn to embrace our mistakes it shifts our thinking from negative to positive and will help us move forward in life, one mistake at a time.
