What Do You Learn From Your Mistakes?

“A man must be big enough to admit his mistakes, smart enough to profit from them, and strong enough to correct them.” – John C. Maxwell

The mistakes we make can be a great way to learn. However, if we blame others for our mistakes, we are more likely to repeat them over and over.

Admitting our mistakes is a powerful way of taking responsibility for our lives. Reflecting on what we learned is a great way to develop ourselves and to become better contributors to society.  When we can correct and clean up those mistakes, we not only
empower ourselves we empower all involved. Correcting mistakes is a one way to start a new beginning especially after experiencing our hopes and dreams heading down the wrong path.

While it’s easy to quit when things don’t go the way you expected, there is hope. You can benefit from mistakes. You can start by looking at the things you have wanted to accomplish in your life. Instead of feeling disappointed, look for what was missing and what could have been done differently. When you consider a fresh perspective, there is the chance that it could pave the way to success. First you must be willing to take responsibility for what went wrong and make the necessary corrections. Then be willing to put the new point of view into action.  

While correcting your mistakes may seem like a big pill to swallow, it is a great way to take charge of your life. Admit, learn and correct.  Not only is this the way of living a path to success, in the long run, it is a path to happiness and peace of mind.
