Episode Notes:

  • Mistakes encourage us to look for another direction or a source of action. They can keep us moving forward if we allow them too.
  • Perfectionism and failing to own that we are human stunts are growth.

Tips to letting go and learning from mistakes:

  • Forgive and love yourself.
  • Remind yourself that everything happens for a reason and see what you can learn from this situation.
  • Reframe the situation.
  • All yourself to feel the feelings but do not live in the negative feelings.
  • Stay present and know that this too shall pass.
