Have you ever felt that it was a mistake to:
Webster defines a mistake as: An error in action, calculation, opinion, or judgment caused by poor reasoning, carelessness, insufficient knowledge, etc.
The part that I LOVE about that definition is “insufficient knowledge” because you don’t know, what you don’t know! If you made a decision based on knowledge that you didn’t have, how can you possibly have made a different choice? You took a chance, based on the knowledge you had, and realized later that your choice was a mistake.
Understanding that there is a “positive” for every “negative” it is about time that we look at the mistakes in our life as one big POSITIVE!!!
A mistake is a great opportunity to learn a better way. In the movies, when they are shooting a scene they may have to film it numerous times before they get it right. I am sure you have seen information on your favorite movie when they say “Action, take one.” Then they shoot it again and say “Action, take two.” I like to call this a MIS-take. This gives it a positive spin because it allows you the opportunity for a re-take, over and over until you get it the way you want it! If you take a picture and you aren’t happy with the results, you can take it again until you get the look you want!
The only “negative” is deciding not to try, so get out there and give yourself permission to make mistakes; because mistakes are the way we learn!
