Making Mistakes

“Oops!” So familiar an expression of mine every time I make a mistake. Over the years I have made tons of them. Maybe you have too. So here is a lesson I have learned and will share this with you.

Of course we make mistakes. We all do. But some people live with it and others fix it. The thing to do is to own it and stop the blame game. Then reconfigure a way to deal with it. Make past mistakes work for you. We make mistakes. Yes. We all do. And when we do we must be

1. Big enough to admit those mistakes.
2. Strong enough to correct them.
3. Smart enough to profit from them.
4. Wise enough not to repeat them.

Mistakes become lessons and failures become tuition and all these help us do better and be better. Just KISS! Keep It Simple, Stupid!

Quiet People

Quiet people are not necessarily lonely, they may actually be enjoying the silence. People who are loud may not exactly be happy, sometimes they are just good in disguising their sadness. Appearance never tell the entire story.

There’s now what is called “disconnection anxiety”. This is when there’s no Wi-Fi or low-batt or no book or no television. And people become so anxious they don’t know how to handle the situation anymore.

Technology does not have a soul. You and I have. Learn to quiet the soul and be attuned to its Maker.

In the workplace, there are people who do not work much but are good in grabbing credit. There are those who quietly do the work and enjoy their accomplished work. One day the deficiencies of the fakers will be revealed. Meanwhile the quiet performers continue to upgrade their capabilities reaping their rewards. There’s no limit to what can be accomplished if it doesn’t matter who gets the credit.

Had a Bad Day?

So you have had a bad day. I have. All of us do from time to time. Someone said this and has served as a good reminder for me. Perhaps this can help you too: Having a bad day doesn’t mean you have had a bad life.

So let’s get over it and move on. Tomorrow will be better.

Put your hand on your heart. Feel that? That’s called purpose. Don’t give up!

We cannot get everyone to agree with us. That is a fact. Some would not even like us. There will be haters. There will be criticism. There will be those who love to bad mouth. And there will be those who will doubt you.

Just stick to the truth and focus on doing what is right. Truth will one day prove them wrong. Don’t play their game.

Here is the key: If you can’t beat them NEVER join them. Not worth it at all.

Sometimes we have to fight through some bad days to earn the best days of our life.

ISA for All, Relationships

Relationships Matter

When it comes to friendship, favors are stronger currencies compared to money. Help without expecting anything in return for if you do, then it is no longer a favour and neither is it a help; it becomes a transaction.

When it comes to business we need to invest in relationships. This way, we’ll get a good return. A great percentage of our business should be a repeat business if we’ll prioritize relationship over much income. When it comes to employment do not burn bridges. This way you can still bank on future possibilities. Relationships matter.

On the other hand, some people claim they are your friends but they are reliable only when it is convenient. True friends are true when they are there during times of troubles. This is why you and I should make ourselves available when our friends are in their times of need. This is the true test of friendship.

No Excuses

When faced with a difficult situation we can either find a way, make a way but we definitely should not create an excuse. We will never profit from the experience.

We do not succeed all the time but we can always profit by learning from it. Do not loose the lesson even if you lose.

It is better to err on the side of action. This way we can make adjustments. Where there is action there would be movement and adjustments. But when we commit an error on the side of inaction, then we achieve nothing and tend to make excuses. This would be a failure with no redeeming value.

Nobody will care about excuses. Nobody will pity procrastinating. Nobody’s gonna cuddle someone who’s lazy. Its your ass. You move it.

Energy Vampires

People are always unavailable for people who are constantly complaining and angry all the time. It’s not that they are insensitive, it is simply because their energy are zapped and their beauty is uglified by all that negativity. Put on a smile on your face and be an encourager instead. The world opens up to you in terms of friendship and opportunities.

Surround yourself with the dreamers and the doers, the believers and the thinkers. But most of all surround yourself with those who see greatness within you.

Some people equate the worth of a person with the work he or she produces. That is all so wrong. You are worth so much not because of what you do but because of what Christ has done for you on the cross. This is why only Christ gives intrinsic worth. No need to feel sorry for yourself. You are worth so much in the eyes of The One who have His life for you.

Saying Sorry

Saying sorry is important and it works. But saying sorry works only when a mistake is done but not when trust is broken.

So in life as in business, we can afford to make mistakes, say sorry and repair the mistakes. But we can never afford to break trust. Forgiving is easy but forgetting and trusting again takes a long time and is sometimes impossible.

We make mistakes. We apologise and say, I am sorry. But make sure we do not mess up an apology with an excuse. “I am sorry… BUT… the reason why I did what I did…” This is not an apology because the word BUT nullifies the effort. Genuine apology also means the correction of the wrong that has been done. Repair for the damage has to be initiated. This is the responsibility of the one who did the wrong. If this part is missing the process is incomplete.

We all have made mistakes and there are many who want reform and recovery. When the intention is honest and sincere, there is no longer any need to bring up the past of a person when the same person is trying to improve his or her future.

Advice and Suggestions

Have you ever given advice or a suggestion and someone responded with “You’re not my boss!” or “Who died and left you in charge?” Too often, we want to run our own lives according to our own plans, and we see help from others as interference. This is not good.

Some people are over confident even in their errors and refuse to accept the ideas of others. They defend their stand to the death. This is not a good thing. The ability to withhold judgment, consider differing views, assessing them and doing due diligence is the key towards arriving at truthful information that form the bases for one’s decision. This is a leadership skill that has to be trained and developed.

Successful people love to hear advice including things they do not want to hear but they need to hear. This is humility and they get to enjoy the benefits later on.
