 A Strong Person Will Admit Their Mistakes

“A strong person will step up to admit their mistakes.

They will move pass them as quickly as possible. . . .

 and will continue their forward momentum

on their success journey.”

Lou Ludwig, Sales and Management Consultant,

Success Coach, Speaker, Trainer and Author

 

 

As I see it . . . . . . . .

A strong person will admit their mistakes

 

Be big enough . . . .  to admit you make a mistake. Be smart enough . . . . to learn from your mistakes. Be willing to correct your mistake . . . . and make a commitment not to repeat the mistake.

 

Making mistakes are part of your personal growth . . . . and your success journey. Use your mistakes as a learning experience to increase your productively . . . . and to help you to become more efficient  in the future.

 

When you admit your mistakes you take control of the mistake . . . . your life . . . . and destiny.

 

Be big enough to admit your mistakes . . . . and you will find that your mistakes become stepping stones to greater success.

 

A strong person will admit their mistakes . . . . put it behind them  . . . . and you will move forward.

If you can't admit a mistake, you can't truly learn from it.

I hate dealing with arrogant people who think they know it all and will never admit when they are wrong or make a mistake.

It's OK to make a mistake and learn from it. Better yet to learn from history and the mistakes made by others to avoid the same mistakes.

Mistakes are sometimes disastrous or fatal. Ask General Custer.

Not everyone does admit mistakes...they can be in denial or just not address the situation.  If you have the right mindset--you learn from mistakes!

People hire a Real Estate Agent by deciding if they can Trust that person.

You are correct, we will make mistakes. Owning that mistake and admitting it and correcting it will go a long way towards keeping the Trust.

Thanks

You got it right, Lou. I do not understand why admitting mistakes is so difficult.  It may even work for political candidates!
