Good Morning My Friends,
As we begin this month of August we have 2 messages towards our goal of positivity. MISTAKES/SUCCESS
“If you do not tell the truth about yourself, you cannot tell it about other people.: (Virginia Woolf)
When we recognize our own flaws-and our own strengths-and can share them with others, we have more credibility when we assess the flaws and strengths of those around us. In fact, we have more credibility in all that we do when we are honest about ourselves with others.
NOTE TO SELF:
I know what I do well and what I don’t do well. I know the mistakes I’ve made in the past and the successes I’ve had. I don’t need to paint a false picture to others. I can tell my story just as it is.
It takes a wise man to learn from his mistakes, but an even wiser man to learn from others. (Zen saying)
Dont’ spend time thinking about what’s wrong with you. Focus instead on what’s right with you and build upon it. (Joel Osteen)
In our journey toward self-improvement our first message is about mistakes. No one is exempt from making a mistake and I am certain no one is ever pleased with themselves when this happens. The best we can do is OWN it, CORRECT it, LEARN from it and move forward. That is what is most important.
Our second message : SUCCESS (definition-the accomplishment of an aim or purpose) Often success is viewed as someone who has gained public notoriety, such as a musician, author, world leader. But have you helped a friend or family member through a difficult time? Have you been kind to a stranger? Have you assisted a co-work with a project without hesitation? Have been able to calm an unruly customer and possibly even make them smile? That my dear friends is SUCCESS. Each and every one of us has our own individual story. So OWN it, and be PROUD. You are a success.
Wishing everyone a great week
