Here are 3 ways to have a great week . . .
Set yourself up to achieve what you want to …
- Realize that you are only human. Making mistakes is a normal part of life. It just isn’t possible for any one of us to be perfect. we all make mistakes. If mistakes were not expected there would not erasers on pencils, a back key or an undo button. It’s ok, though, as long as we know that we try our best, most times. Don' beat yourself up over it, feel embarrassed or ashamed. Recognize that it is okay to make a mistake, and the mistake does define you. Even a rose has thorns— right?
- Learn from what happened. When we make mistakes, we find out what to do, or not to do in a given situation. If we react appropriately, the mistake can help us, in the short term, to make changes to better our current situation. In the long term, it can help us become more resilient and better able to handle challenging situations. We can use the experience to become better versions of ourselves.
- Try again. Even our smallest choices have power, and mistakes can be a signal that our words and our actions are not in alignment. If need be, we can do a deep dive into ourselves by reviewing what we did, reconsidering our intention in doing so, and adjusting our future actions to better align with our priorities. Once we acknowledge the mistake, and take responsibility for it, we can then execute on a plan to fix the mistake. We can try again. Having the courage to reflect, learn and try again allows us to demonstrate integrity, develop our problem solving skills and grow into stronger versions of ourselves.
REMEMBER . . . YOU GOT THIS!
