Mistake is just another word for Failure.
And Heaven knows I’ve made my fair share of mistakes. I’ve had my fair share of failures. But I’m OK with that because I know a secret.
It’s not your mistakes, it’s what you do with your mistakes that defines you.
I know it can be a challenge to let go of things we’ve done wrong. But holding on to mistakes doesn’t help anyone. True, all mistakes carry a price. Some of them only require a small token to recover from while others are life-altering-with lingering repercussions that never seem to end. But either way, all mistakes carry within lessons to help you grow into your ideal you.
The questions is, “Are you listening?”
Past is past. Nothing you do will ever change it! But the future, the Now, those are unwritten!
You are an artist. Your life, the canvas of your dreams painted with the brush strokes of your actions.
If you’re haunted by anything from your past, I challenge you to ask yourself, “What can I learn from this that will help me grow and become a better person?” Then use the knowledge from your past mistakes as gifts to guide you on your road to a better tomorrow.
We all have the power to create the life we desire. We all have the power to master our destiny and succeed at life! Some of us are afraid of that power. So we deny it and blame others for the state of our lives. But as long as we blame others, we’ll never succeed.
Stop punishing yourself for your past. Start using it as a classroom to guide you to your new, bright future. Make the decision today to evolve into your ideal you. Be a miracle in your life and in the lives of others!
You Are The Master of Your Destiny!
