Happy new year!
Make mistakes might seem like a bold way to suggest to start the year ahead but I am about helping you to be Extraordinary. By now you would have had several emails with suggestions of things to do in the year ahead, so here is a different slant. I hope you make mistakes! When you are making mistakes, then you are trying something new, learning, living, changing, pushing yourself and challenging yourself to higher levels. And that is how you will improve, whatever your goal. Here are a few great quotes to inspire you.
Success seems to be connected with action. Successful people keep moving. They make mistakes, but they don’t quit.
Your best teacher is your last mistake.
The only real mistake is the one from which we learn nothing.
Get comfortable being uncomfortable.
U.S. Navy SEALs
If you can be comfortable being uncomfortable, you’ll be prepared to handle whatever situation comes along in your own life.
If parents want to give their children a gift, the best thing they can do is to teach their children to love challenges, be intrigued by mistakes, enjoy effort, and keep on learning. That way, their children don’t have to be slaves of praise. They will have a lifelong way to build and repair their own confidence.”
Carol S Dweck, Author of Mindset -The Psychology of Success
Have an awesome few weeks and don’t worry about those mistakes. Just keep moving and Be Extraordinary.
