“I would not be nearly
as successful as I am
If I had not made a lot of mistakes."
~ Jeanie Marshall
I have told every employee and most clients that I attribute my success to making mistakes. I usually say this right after the client or employee has made a mistake.
The key is to make DIFFERENT mistakes and reflect on each one long enough to learn something new. If I keep making the SAME mistakes I have not really learned.
A statement like this to someone who has made a mistake can diffuse guilt or discouragement.
Make this a Successful Day!
