I think you all realize we live in a human world, not a perfect world, a HUMAN ONE. Shortcomings, failures and mistakes are just a part of everyday life. Mistakes happen on the job, in your choice of friends, and in financial decisions.
Many mistakes are devastating, but I believe that most of the mistakes we make can be turned around for a MIRACLE and for our good. Mistakes help us make changes in the direction of our lives. You can turn failure into FREEDOM and mistakes into MIRACLES.
FOUR THINGS YOU MUST CHANGE IN ORDER TO RECIEVE YOUR MIRACLE.
1. ACCEPT YOUR HUMANITY: We are not God and we do not have “ANGEL WINGS.” The chances of you making a mistake today or all least in the next few days are pretty great. We make them every day. BECAUSE WE ARE HUMAN.
2. ADMIT YOUR MISTAKES: Recognize those mistakes and confess them to yourself. Do not justify them or make excuses for them. Confess them to others who may have been hurt by the mistakes. A word of caution be careful who and what you confess to others.
3. ASSIGN THE RESPONSIBILITY OF THE MISTAKE TO THE ONE TRULY AT FAULT: If that is you, then you take the HEAT for it. If it someone other than you then hold them responsible.
4. REVIEW OTHER POSSIBLE SOLUTIONS TO THE MISTAKE: Obviously you have made a wrong move. What other options could you have made that you have changed the outcome of that move. There are always other OPTIONS that could have been made. Could you have done it differently? Of course we could have but we didn’t, go on with life and REVIEW the mistakes and DON’T MAKE THE SAME ONES AGAIN IN THE FUTURE.
DON’T QUIT OR BECOME DISCOURAGED BECAUSE OF FAILURE. IT IS A DOORWAY TO FREEDOM OF LIFE YOU DO NOT YET KNOW.
