What You Do With a Mistake?

 “What you do with a mistake – recognize it,

admit it, learn from it, forget it.”

Dean Smith, Basketball Coach

                                          

 

 

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

What do you do with a mistake?

 

A mistake can be a learning experience . . . .  or a weight on your shoulders. What you do with a mistake becomes a personal choice.

 

Indentify your mistakes . . . . and what has caused them to occur. Determine what happen . . . . and why . . . . and find a way not to repeat the mistake in the future.

                   

You can admit your mistakes . . . . and use the experience as lessons for personal growth . . . .  Or you can be in a state of denial . . . . and be destined to repeat them.

 

You can carry your mistakes around with you to the point of exhaustion . . . .  Or we can move them into your past . . . .  and forget about them.

 

Mistakes are the tolls that you pay on your success journey . . . . pay them once . . . . and move on.

 

What do you do with a mistake? . . . .  Put your mistakes behind you . . . . move on   . . . . and you will lighten your load on your success journey.

Admit, apologize, learn and move on... that is the only way to deal with mistakes, Lou. At the end of the day, you can't change what you don't acknowledge.
