Rethinking Mistakes

Pencils have erasers, digital devices have delete.  Success is built on the back of how people handle their mistakes – admit them, improve on them, apologize for them.

When you make mistakes, you get stronger not weaker.  Our mistakes help us learn more about ourselves and others.  They can be painful.  In all of Major League Baseball history only 204 players out of thousands had a lifetime batting average over .300.  Ty Cobb was the best at “only” .3662 that means less than 40% of the time, he made a mistake.  Rethink the value of mistakes and free yourself to learn from them and succeed.
