Do Not Focus On Your Mistakes

You are not perfect. And nobody expects you to be perfect. Because of that, mistakes are going to happen.

When they happen, do not worry yourself about them. The only thing you can do is to focus on how you are going to get yourself back up.

And if you catch yourself worrying about them, tell yourself, ‘It is okay to make mistakes.’

Because we learn when we make mistakes. If you are not making enough mistakes, guess what, your innovative boss will soon fire you.

It means you are not taking enough risks. It means you are playing it too safe. It means you just want to be comfortable. And it means you do not want to be successful.

If you are scared of making a mistake, then you are scared of growth.

If you are scared of making a mistake, it means you are under the control of your ego.

If you do not want to make a mistake, then it means you do not want to get to the next level. Guess what? You can run, but you cannot hide. You can avoid it for now, but you cannot avoid it forever.

If you want to be successful at what you do, if you want your boss to promote you, you must learn to live with mistakes. You must learn to accept mistakes. And you must say to yourself, ‘It is okay to mess up.’ Because we are human beings.
