Dare to Live without Limits

Don’t be afraid to admit when you are wrong

        Some people are afraid of making mistakes. When mistakes are made, they try to save face by refusing to admit they were wrong. This is a deeply flawed strategy, which actually causes harm. Not admitting when you are wrong traps you into repeating the same mistakes again and again.

        Making mistakes is part of the learning process. Once you realize that you made a mistake, take responsibility, and then commit to the changes necessary to avoid making the same mistake again.

        Have you ever worked for a boss who would never admit when they were wrong? If you have, you know how frustrating it is. Regardless of the mistakes they make, they never take responsibility. As a result, you probably lost respect for them.

What are the odds? It doesn’t really matter

        Have you ever decided against pursuing a goal because the odds were against you? Do your chances of success determine which path you will take? Is your assessment of your chances of succeeding based on the opinions of others?

        In reality, the odds don’t matter. Most great accomplishments occurred in spite of the odds. Sometimes they succeeded even when others thought there was no chance of success. Furthermore, every new invention and revolutionary discovery has occurred even though nothing like it had ever been done before.

When it comes to happiness the choice is yours

        You choose what food to buy when you go to the grocery store. You choose what meal to order when you eat out. You choose where to go on vacation. You choose your friends. You make choices in virtually every area of your life.

        The one exception for too many people is their emotional state. The belief is that you can’t choose how you feel. The common misconception is that how you feel is a reaction to the circumstances you are dealing with. Therefore, if things are going well, you’ll be happy, otherwise you will feel stressed.
