#161: Power Play – Join the rush

I’ve failed over and over and over again in my life and that is why I succeed.”  Michael Jordan

It’s the same way in life the only way to avoid making mistakes is to sit in the stands.  Making mistakes means that you’re experiencing life – taking risks, trying new things, finding out who you are and moving forward despite your fears.  The mistakes you make teach you lessons and help you to improve and innovate.  Without making mistakes ourselves, we wouldn’t understand how to forgive or the importance of forgiveness.  We wouldn’t know how to live a life without regrets and let nothing stop us from achieving our dreams.  The real mistake is being afraid to make them.

A life spent making mistakes is not only more honorable, but more useful than a life spent doing nothing.”  George Bernard Shaw

Game Plan:  Allow yourself grace when you make mistakes, reflecting on them and learning from them.  Mistakes can be useful to us if we know how to use them.  Stop sitting on the bench and join the rush!
