Being an opportunist and risk taker I’ve learned a lot of valuable lessons in my 31 years, many of them the hard way.
Every so often, it took more than one of the same mistake before I learned the lesson. Has this ever happened to you?
While I’ve had my share of noteworthy accomplishments I’ve found what really helps me build rapport with people I meet is sharing my setbacks, lessons and temporary failures.
Keep in mind, failure is a verb, not a noun.
We have all made mistakes. The more mistakes we make with the right mindset the more we get to learn. Stay positive!
The greatest breakthroughs and insights have come in my darkest and most challenging hours, yet looking back on them, they are all blessings (in disguise) that helped shape and define my outlook, judgement, morals and values. Begin to appreciate your setback and mistakes they help us grow.
When given the choice, always choose the new mistake =)
To leave out the setbacks from our story denies someone the opportunity to learn what we’ve been through and find out more about what makes us tick.
Stay tuned to my blog as I will open up and be totally transparent sharing the stories that have had the greatest impact on my life.
Within every setback or obstacle or disadvantage there is the seed of an equal or opposite or greater advantage or benefit. (Napoleon Hill)
Keep pushing play on life, keep making mistakes, stay positive and keep learning.
No man ever achieved worthwhile success who did not, at one time or other, find himself with at least one foot hanging well over the brink of failure. (Napoleon Hill)
