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!

To Be A Winner

If we want to be a winner, then we have to stop thinking like we are the victim. If we want to achieve great things then we have to stop thinking small. Let’s take charge and be responsible for the choices we make.

It’s one thing when someone accomplishes something, but isn’t it better when a team achieves something together and everyone can celebrate? Talent may win games, but teamwork and team play win championships. A person may be a superstar but when the team does not win, the personal victory is not meaningful.

“A winner is someone who recognizes his God-given talents, works his tail off to develop them into skills, and uses these skille to accomplish his goals.” ~Larry Bird

Rise and Grind

Wake up early and make things happen. Rise and shine, rise and grind. Be kind. Be honest. The next day, do the same thing. Wash, rinse, repeat!

This is what gets me to produce positive results. And when they come, I stay humble. Pray and always fill your mind with good vibes. Then repeat the process. Routine is key to a disciplined life.

In our quest for personal excellence, the most important question is how do I BECOME better, not just ACCOMPLISH things better.

The journey for improvement is not elegant as most people think them to be. It is the consistent sticking to a set of personal disciplines that forms the process of improvement until progress becomes the natural outflow of the effort. The process is more important than the product.

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.

Two Lines

There are two lines that merit our careful consideration. The starting line and the finish line. Starting something is easy and most manage that part just fine. Finishing well is more challenging and demands diligence and responsibility. Anyone can commit to do something but it takes a committed person to actually get it done.

Faithfulness can’t be measured at the starting line but becomes obvious to all at the finish line. So replace good intentions with meaningful action and stick to it until you finish well. This applies to work, business and most importantly in relationships.

Don’t stop when you’re tired, stop when you’re done.

Time – Use Wisely but Take it Easy

Some talk to you in their free time and some free their time to talk to you. Good leaders are never too busy to listen to their people and to give them time. So do real friends are.

Use time wisely. You and I have limited resources. We need to be wise in its usage. So here is an idea: Never give someone the opportunity to waste your time and energy… twice. Once is a mistake, but twice? Ugh… terrible!

Take it easy. Times are hard. Life is not easy. Emotions will be stirred. Do not do something that is permanently damaging as an immediate reaction to a very temporary state of anger and being upset. Not a good thing. Do not react. Respond after giving it a good amount of thinking.

Training Not Trying

Let’s change the words and say, “I am training to be successful.” You and I need to convert our dreams to reality by putting in the work of learning and doing. There is a difference between training to do something and trying to do something. Big difference.

Don’t wish to become better. Train to become better. Instead of saying “I am trying to be successful”, say “I am training to be successful.” Formal education can earn you a living, but self-education will make you a fortune.

Knowing is not enough; we must apply. Willing is not enough we must do.

“I hated every minute of training, but I said, don’t quit! Suffer now and live the rest of your life as a champion.” ~Muhammad Ali

Dare to Begin

Dreams? Wishes? Aspirations? We have all these and people all over the place have them too. But here is one reminder you and I should never forget and here it is: “You can never win if you do not want to begin.” says Helen Rowland. And she is right. So get started and make things happen.

The man who goes farthest is generally the one who is willing to do and dare. Let’s have faith that right makes might, and in that faith let us, to the end, dare to do our duty as we understand it.

Finally, don’t take the risk, take the chance. 😉
