We don’t easily accept mistakes or take responsibility for our action. In a world that does reward excellence, it’s easy to blame others and shift the focus from ourselves. The danger in the latter is that we become angry, resentful and are unable to focus on what matters.
So today, I am here to let you know that it’s ok to make mistakes. Why? Here are 8 reasons:
We Are Human
You are not a robot that can process more than a trillion instructions, before taken decision; You are human with feelings and emotions that are not be perfect.
