Mistakes are actually Stepping Stones to Success!

Have you ever heard the saying "without failure, there would be no success?"  Think about it -- challenges, setbacks, and failure are a part of our lives.  The key is to learn from mistakes without excessively dwelling on the facts that caused the setback in the first place.  As Nelson Boswell said, "The difference between greatness and mediocrity is often how an individual views a mistake."


Mistakes are actually Stepping Stones to Success!

Sometimes, people view an isolated situation in life to label someone a failure, but, as author John C. Maxwell says, setbacks and mistakes are actually ... LESSONS!  Also, try changing your thinking about "failure" because failure is NOT an event.    You may fail at times as you experiment with what to do next, but you are not a failure because of failing.  Think of success -- a successful marriage, a successful business, or a successful career.  Success is not a destination, as in one day you wake up and POOF!  You are successful.  Success is a journey and a process of many actions and much progress over many years.  Think of failure the same way -- it's not a place you show up at one day.  If you think about failure in that way, no one ever fails unless they give up and stop moving forward! 

An effective leader learns from the past without dwelling on it and has a passion for a cause that is larger than they are. If a business is going to meaningfully contribute to society, and grow into a larger organization over time, not everything is going to go right every day.
