In the next three posts, we will discuss three very important rights for personal growth and development: the right to make mistakes, the right to fail, the right to be "bad."
We all make mistakes, but not all of us are ready to admit a mistake and learn from it. Instead, we prefer to criticize, insult, and blame ourselves for even our everyday mistakes.
All this takes away your energy, exhausts you mentally and physically. You are chaining yourself, not allowing yourself to make mistakes, demanding to be ideal, trying to predict all the consequences of your steps or decisions. Yes, you are chained with ideal chains, with chains polished like diamonds. Imagine the world around you full of possibilities, and imagine you are chained in the corner. This is "the gift" for trying to be infallible.
To break those chains, let`s try to do the follwing exercise just now.
- Remember one of your mistakes, take a moment to look at it as a stranger. Look at the mistake as one of the many events in this world.
- Then remember one of your right decisions or steps, look at it as a stranger. Take a look at this step as one of the many events in the world.
- Now answer for yourself. What is the difference between these two events? Aren't they both just events that we call wrong or right? Aren't they both an experience for you? In that case, why give them features? Just take the experience and use it, break the diamond chains․ The world is waiting for your experience with its many opportunities.
What will happen, if you give yourself the right to make mistakes:
- You will realize that you have made a mistake, you will not insult and blame yourself, but you will open a place in your heart for love.
- You will not repeat the same mistake in the future similar situation, but you will try to solve the problem in another way
- You will gain experience based on your mistake, you will learn from your mistake
- You will increase your opportunities, including the opportunity to succeed and be more efficient.
- You will get rid of the constant pressure of guilt, life will be filled with love.
