Getting Over Mistakes

None of us are perfect. Whether they are major or minor, we all tend to make mistakes on a regular basis.

But are you able to get over these mistakes? That’s the real challenge.

I came across an excellent list courtesy of and decided to expand upon their points.

• Know that you are not the only person who makes mistakes.

As I previously mentioned, none of us are perfect. Michael Jordan missed basketball shots, Steve Jobs was fired from Apple and even Wayne Gretzky missed the net. Even the best of the best have days when they are humbled.

• Understand why you made the mistake: Were you careless? Hurried? Not thinking?

There’s always a reason for a mistake. Instead of beating yourself up over it, or denying the blame, you should truly think about why you made it.

• Think positively and realistically about how bad the mistake really is.

Is your mistake so bad that the entire world will declare war on you? I highly doubt it. In fact, we tend to blow these mishaps out of proportion.

• Don’t obsess and replay the mistake over and over.

There comes a place and time where you need to get over the hump and walk away. Obsessing over a mistake is not healthy and can have some very negative effects on the mind and body.

• Don’t define yourself by your mistakes.

Define yourself by what you have to offer and your accomplishments. Mistakes can be improved upon and converted into a newfound strength.

• Learn from the mistake.

Make an effort to never duplicate the same mistake. Whether it’s through note keeping, patience or asking for assistance, learn from the past.

• Seek help. If you have difficulty getting over the incident after considerable amount of time, consider seeing a therapist.

You should never be embarrassed to ask for help. These are trained professionals who are willing to help you find solutions.
