Have you ever made a mistake? Of course you have. We’ve all made hundreds, even thousands of them.
What can we do with them? Well, we could let them dwell within us. We could let them make us grumpy, discouraged, disappointed, angry, and cause us to get off track and distracted from our goal or dealing with the project or the person that needs to be our total focus.
Or, we can learn from them and not make them again. We could reflect on how we could have done something better or said those words softer or been a more compassionate listener.
And finally, you can get over it. You can’t worry about the last game. All you can worry about is the game that’s coming up, that next step you’re going to take, that next game you’re going to play, that next sales call you’re going to have. So when you screw up, suck it up and get over it.
