Mistake must be one of the words that everyone least want to hear, particularly when is directed at us.
When we are accused of making a mistake (this happens most of the times) a part of us will always try to get some external excuse or someone to point the finger at. Why?
Perhaps because, for the vast majority, is more difficult to face reality rather than accepting we do make mistakes and only by change can we improve.
We must accept error and use them to learn about ourselves and use these events as the trigger to start the necessary change to avoid the same situation in the future.
Every time I accept my mistakes and learn from them I am getting wiser and confident.
Just for the record, today I have made a mistake. I have talked to my youngest son in a hungry manner just because I got home tired from work. I apologize right on the spot.
Don’t worry about making mistakes. The important is to learn from them.
“The way to avoid errors is to gain experience and the way to gain experienced is making mistakes” – Peter Laurence
