Leaders Learn

By August 3, 2009 The Compassionate Edge

Congratulations on your big mistake!

Some people can’t move forward with their goals in life because they are afraid of making mistakes. To overcome this, change your attitude about mistakes.
Past errors are not inhibitors of your potential, they are actually fertilizer. If you make a mistake you have the opportunity to learn, correct and move forward.
The moment you change your mind set and stop allowing past mistakes to immobilize you, you will see the power in the lesson and use it as momentum.
You and you alone are responsible for your success and as a leader you need to be tolerant of your own errors and those of the people who report to you.
There is freedom, momentum and opportunity when the permission to fail exists.
If that statement seems like too much of a mind flip, then give it some more thought. Let me know what you come up with. 
Yes you can!
