Don’t Let Your Mistakes Keep You From Achieving Your Dreams

sandis-helvigs-89957

Stop dwelling on your mistakes. Who cares if you’ve screwed up, hasn’t everybody? I know too many people (I’ve fallen into this category) who dwell on their mistakes. You’re going to make mistakes, get over it! Learn from your mistakes and move on. Don’t continue to sit there and think that you have failed, you only fail when you quit trying. Don’t think that you’ve missed opportunities to change your life, each second, each minute, and each hour of each day is an opportunity for you to turn it all around. Don’t fear failure, fear stops a lot of people from reaching their true potential and it keeps people away from achieving marvelous things.

Don’t think that you’ve missed opportunities to change your life, each second, each minute, and each hour of each day is an opportunity for you to turn it all around. Don’t fear failure, fear stops a lot of people from reaching their true potential and it keeps people away from achieving marvelous things.

Don’t be that person who lives with the mantra of, ‘woulda, coulda, shoulda!’ Those people are always looking back and thinking of what could have been had they not quit and give up on their dreams and aspirations. The world has too many of these kinds of people. Be better than that. Never be afraid of taking the first step. Keep trying. If you keep stumbling, pick yourself up and try again.

Doers make mistakes. So be a doer. As John Wooden once said, “If you’re not making mistakes, you’re not doing anything.”

Don’t let your mistakes bring you down. Don’t be ashamed. Shame is such a negative tool that will always work against us and tempt us to give up. Too often I think people give up on a task or a dream too soon because it gets difficult or you don’t seem to see the results that you want. Quitting seems to be the easy way out, you let fear creep in to speak to you and it makes you question yourself and your abilities.

‘Why am I even doing this?’

‘What is the point?’

‘Why should I even try? Someone else can do it better.’ Or, ‘I’m not good enough.’

Those voices of fear and shame always want to point out our mistakes in hoping to keep us from becoming great and doing great things.

Life is a gift. Life is short, life has many challenges. Don’t let your mistakes and shortcomings add to the pile of life stress. Choose to move on. Choose to be determined. Choose to never quit. Choose to keep going. Choose to be happy and choose to feel good.

You don’t need a reason to feel happy, you can feel it at any time simply because you’re alive!

“The graveyard is the richest place on earth, because it is here that you will find all the hopes and dreams that were never fulfilled, the books that were never written, the songs that were never sung, the inventions that were never shared, the cures that were never discovered, all because someone was too afraid to take that first step, keep with the problem, or determined to carry out their dream.”- Les Brown

Don’t let your mistakes keep you from achieving your dreams. Achieve your dreams. Don’t quit. Stay the course and keep at it. Don’t quit. Stay the course and keep at it.

You only fail when you quit trying.

Welcome to my site! This post is all about an introduction to my purpose for creating a website. My posts will all be centered around self-improvement, personal development, self-growth, whatever personal category you want to call it, it’s all centered around helping the individual (you!), grow as a person.

Everyone is different. We are all so different from one another. That’s what makes this category of self-improvement great because I think in all of us, there is a call to do better and to be better. Sometimes we heed the call and act on it and sometimes we push it aside. As human beings, there is a feeling within us of becoming better, improving a skill, learning something new, and overcoming a bad habit or past mistake. It’s always going to be up to you, whether you will do it or whether you will not. No one can make that choice for you. If you want to improve and grow, you must do it yourself! You can read hundreds of books and hundreds of online articles about self-improvement, but unless you act on the thoughts that you receive you’ll just stay stagnant and most likely move backward. I believe in taking action, believing, committing and heeding the call to become better and do better. Always pressing forward.

Self-improvement is all about the individual. It’s personal and my goal for my website is to make it personal. Not every article that I publish is going to work for you because everyone is different. But, the goal is that in every article the reader (you!) will learn something and be able to have some “ah-ha” moments.
