For sometimes now, I have been taking a look at what we call mistakes and how we often respond to it. Mistakes already have a negative nomenclature and ranking. No one wants to associate with it. I think it high time we look at it from another angle. So, the question is; how do you see Mistakes?
How Do You See Mistakes: Robert Kiyosaki Answers
Let’s look at it the way Robert Kiyosaki sees it when he said “the idea that mistakes are bad is a bad idea”. If you ask me, I am in perfect agreement with this. This is because mistakes helps to see the right way things out to be done if you are objective enough. Some of us already knows that some mistakes are blessings in disguise. I am glad to burst your bubbles that its not some but all. When you make a mistake, take your time to get the lesson. That’s how you can see the blessings.
The saying is also true that the one who never makes mistake has never tried anything new. The way of growth is in trying new things. Its also a sign that you are not stagnant. If you are afraid of mistakes and you let that keep you at mediocre level, it means you are not ready to grow or expand. So try new things, make mistakes and take your time to learn from the mistakes. Don’t let the fear of mistakes cut you off from reaching your goals. Everyone we have ever tagged successful made mistakes. Many of them even made terrible mistakes but they still made it because they learnt as they made mistakes.
How To Use Your Mistakes Positively
The very first step to using mistakes positively is to know that as long as you are human, mistakes are inevitable. You are probably aware of the saying “to err is human…” Just note that you are not God. If you keep trying new things you will definitely make mistake at one point or the other. So accept the fact that it is part of life.
When you make mistakes, own up to your mistakes. Don’t try to play the blame game. It is in owning your mistakes that you understand what you are not doing right or why it eventually end up like that. You can’t the correction if you blame the mistake on someone or situation. Giving out blame is the easiest thing to do, it takes discipline to own up to your mistakes. That’s the only way your mistake can be a blessing in disguise.
