You’re Gonna Screw Up!

P608

While we strive to do our best in life, relationships, work, and everything else; I am convinced that if we learned and accepted at an early age that we will screw up, we would be much happier. Now, none of us expect to be perfect of course, but we all have problems with making mistakes.

For example:

* We will completely ruin a good relationship or friendship.

*We will disappoint others.

*We will get fired or reprimanded in our jobs. Incidentally this could be a good thing for us!

*We will say the wrong thing at the wrong time.

*We will make complete fools of ourselves.

If we are LUCKY, we will do these things! Why lucky? They are learning experiences. The best learning experiences are from the mistakes we make as human beings. Hopefully we will learn from our mistakes and not make the same ones twice, but even if that happens we can learn a lesson.

I have learned SO much in my life; which means I have screwed up….a LOT! I am sure I will screw up more, but that’s okay, I am human. It doesn’t mean I don’t try to not screw up, but I’ve learned to not worry so much about the mistakes. Life is too short; apologize if you can and if appropriate, learn from the mistake and move on.

  1. You are so right Steve! If we do not try, we will not fail. Failure is an event, not a person, then we learn from the failures!Jump on in :) Thank you for your comments!!

  2. The first one to make 5,127 mistakes wins. ;-pJohn, this is a good post. Many people freeze when it comes to making a decision because they’re afraid of making the "wrong turn.’. Take a look at your options and go. You’re doing the best you can with what you’ve got at the time. Then review what worked and make adjustment(s).
