Learning from our mistakes is a valuable lesson. We can only learn from it after we openly admit and acknowledge there was a mistake made. If we notice we’re repeating the same mistake, it’s a good sign…whew – finally. It’s time to sit down, reflect and learn from it.
As soon as we start blaming someone else (or the universe), we distance ourselves from any possible lesson. If we courageously stand up and honestly say aloud “This is my mistake and I am responsible” the possibilities for learning is endless.
Admission of a mistake, even if only privately to ourselves makes learning possible by moving the focus away from blame assignment, victim mentality and moving forward with grace and purpose.
Wise people admit their mistakes easily. They know progress accelerates when they do.If they can do it, we can too.
