There are no mistakes… Don’t believe me? Read on. The concept of mistakes and failures has always intrigued me. In one situation, we will see a person be completely destroyed by a mistake or “failure” while another individual will be completely transformed in a positive way. A lot has to do with how we were raised, the amount of faith we have in life and in what’s waiting for us on the other side of that failure. In life and in business we need to be ready to make mistakes, meaning to not always achieve what we had hoped for. Until we can accept that, it will be challenging to move forward or reach any kind of success.
What’s meant to be is not all up to us. We are simply a co-creator in this complex journey and in order to succeed we need to be ready to fail with dignity and a bit of humour. Every time something doesn’t work as planned, the universe is just helping you pull out some weeds and make new space for your REAL potential to grow. Strangely, because we are so darn controlling, we are convinced that the weeds are what we need to tend to and keep in our garden (future). But if we just got a little more quiet and still, we could see what really needs to happen and understand the precious lesson behind the failure.

Just to drive the point home, below is an inspirational video by the one and only Oprah Winfrey who shares her wisdom and perspective on failure.
Cheers to your success and INJOY the business journey,
