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.

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

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.

Just A Memory

People today may no longer remember the celebrities of yesteryears. This is a lesson we all must learn. One day, no matter how much we have achieved, no matter how many followers we have in our social media account, you and I will just be a memory.

And even that will fade so there is absolutely no reason we need to be proud and arrogant. Just do our job well, be honest, be kind and live life to the full in God’s presence.

Remember the time when you’re hanging out with friends and family? Then you start recalling memories, blasts from the past where some incredible stuff happened? Some were good, some really funny? They were unique and special. Spend these days creating moments and cultivating memories that will be remembered.

Watching TV is a fake experience, video games are fake accomplishments, dating apps are fake intimacies. Create real experiences and beautiful moments with the people who matter to you.

Happy halloween!

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.

Human Instinct

Do not lie to someone who trusts you. And never trust someone who lies to you. No matter how charming the person is. This is Common sense 101.

Many deceitful people are charming and that is why they get away with their deceit. Others who are perceived as rude and arrogant may not really be, perhaps they are just being straight forward and honest. Discern which is which.

There will always be a reason why we meet people. Either we need them to change our life or we will be the one to change theirs. This is definitely part of the purpose for our being. And this is why it is important to be honest and kind.
