If You Make A Mistake, Own It, Or It Will Own You

“Through our failures we learn more about what we don’t know.”

Own your mistakes. They are yours. When you make mistakes, don’t blame others for them. Blame yourself for them. When you blame yourself for your mistakes, you will have no other choice than to face your mistakes, to learn from them, to understand them, to own them, to fix them, and move on.

But if you do the opposite, if you abandon your mistakes and walk away, if you blame others for your own mess, for your own problems, for your ignorance, for your own carelessness, you neglect yourself, your spirit, your happiness, your joy, your health, and your inner life. If you are afraid of making mistakes, you are afraid of growing.

The only way to real growth is through the gate of mistakes. Are you scared of that gate?

When you blame other people for your mess, when you blame your partner, your kids, your government, your boss, your friends, you reduce yourself. You will learn more from your mistakes if you take responsibility for them. Don’t blame anyone but yourself. It is hard to do, but if you can take responsibility for your behavior, you open the door to your personal and professional growth. Mistake is a way forward, not backward. Make it!

The Death Of Success

The best time to finish what you start is to start. If you don’t start something, how can you finish it. The key to your success in life is to finish what you start.

Don’t give up. Don’t procrastinate. If you do, you will lose the opportunity to change your life. John Assaraf said, “The best way to get something done is to begin.” Not tomorrow. Not next week. Not next month. Not next year, but now.

“Procrastination is the death of success.”

Procrastination is the death of success. It is also the cause of stress. If you don’t want to put yourself under pressure, don’t procrastinate. Start small, but do not procrastinate. Never!

“Procrastination is the death of success.”
