“I’ve learned so much from my mistakes, I think I’ll make a few more.”
There’s no such thing as failure, only feedback.
You may feel you’ve F*cked it up.
You may feel you’ll never get another opportunity again.
There are so many opportunities it’s unbelievable, and so much learning to happen in your future – if you choose to face your fears, face the failures and proceed anyway.
There’s always lessons to be learned from your mistakes or times you feel you’ve failed.
You may not see it at the time though.
At the time, you may think of nothing else for a week or a month!
You’ll think you are the mistake.
You’ll start defining yourself by the mistakes and not the wins.
Be kinder to yourself.
Looking back, you’ll see how mistakes made you up your game, develop greater skills and return with a greater motivation to succeed.
Or you may have been burned from the mistake that you need time to heal.
That’s ok too, it’s feedback that next time you may need to prepare more or be mentally ready to perform at your best.
This takes practice and work so you can be ready for the opportunity when it presents itself.
Opportunities will present themselves.
Are you ready?
