“All men make mistakes, only wise men learn from their mistakes” -Winston Churchill.
Learning only comes from failure. We learn very little when things are going our way. We have to be uncomfortable to see any reason to change. Nothing can make you as uncomfortable as making a mistake.
“Forgive yourself of your faults and your mistakes and move on” – Les Brown
Once you have taken your mistake and learned from it, you have to let it go. There is a delicate balance between remembering your mistake so you don’t do it again and beating yourself up over it.
Self-forgiveness is difficult. We have a constant tape running in our head. Most times we are our own worst critics.
“He who has a why to live for can bear almost any how.” ― Friedrich Nietzsche.
When you screw up fall back on your why. Why do you do what you do? That is the North Star that will guide you back to your path.
