Using Mistakes to Guide Your Way to Greatness

lessons and mistakes.jpg

Life is about the lessons we experience

Every day, we are met with meaningful events that affect who we are

It is how we absorb those experiences, how we interpret the lessons

That makes us AMAZING, INSPIRATIONAL, EXCEPTIONAL

Fall Seven Times, Stand Up Eight — Japanese Proverb

Without failure, learning the boundaries of our abilities, is impossible

Civilization has become so focused on being PERFECT

We have set unreasonable standards

No wonder there is a massive surge of depression, anxiety

People are struggling to cope

Feeling like they can’t measure up to societies EXPECTATIONS

IT’S TIME TO MAKE A CHANGE

We need to learn to say:

“I’m okay with failing. I’m my best self when I push my limits and allow myself to be human”

Without failure…

We would never have discovered flight or launched into Space

Imagine a world where travel is restricted due to slow transportation

The world without satellites

We wouldn’t have the life saving medical interventions available to us today

Surgeries, Transplants, Cancer Treatments, Penicillin

We would never have the beautiful life changing music that surrounds us

Imagine if Bach or Mozart were too scared to try different compositions

We need to stop putting unreasonable expectations on ourselves

The world won’t end if you make a mistake

People probably won’t even notice

If they do? Who cares!

Maybe you taught them something about themselves

The statement I always end my posts with is the REMINDER I personally use

To kick myself in the ass, to forget about what others might say or think

A reminder to get back up, even if I’ve fallen twelve, thirteen, fourteen times

It doesn’t matter, as long as I get back up, KEEP TRYING

Be BIG. Be BOLD. Be BEAUTIFUL. Be YOU!!!
