MISTAKE – Making Incremental Steps Toward Advanced Knowledge & Excellence

No one enjoys making errors. Yet, some are able to handle their missteps better than others. I must admit, I was infected with disease that is perfectionism early on. It festered as I entered environments that were highly demanding and was often ridiculed the very human trait of making mistakes. It took years to identify my affliction and to notice that my greatest pressure was often self-inflicted. I also realized that mistakes are part of growing and learning so as long as the same ones aren’t repeatedly made. Life doesn’t always offer guidelines and sometimes it’s necessary to step into the unknown. With that, comes the chance of erring, but without taking that chance of stepping beyond our current state, we’ll be forever paralyzed with fear.
