Sometimes, You’re Going to Screw Up.

Sometimes, you’re going to screw up.

But don’t be too hard on yourself.

Making mistakes – even downright failing – is a part of the learning process that you should welcome with open arms.

Michael Masterson another of  my favorite gurus calls this the secret of accelerated failure. “If you tense up and focus on avoiding mistakes, you will learn very slowly,” he says. “If you relax, let the mistakes happen, and learn from them, you will advance quickly.”

So in other words, don’t beat yourself up when you make mistakes. They are God’s way of telling you that there is something you need to know.
