  • Mistakes are portals of discovery so it is part of our life. If we never commit mistakes then we can't discover the hidden wonders of life. Using it as a learning experience is what life tells us. Mistakes only tell us that perfection doesn't exist so there is still room for improvement.

  • I think the most important step is to own up to the mistake. Bosses and peers will respect you for accepting responsibility. Find what went into the decision that led to the mistake - was it wrong information? Was it not listening to right information? We as business leaders will make mistakes but we can use the experience to grow and use it to enrich our business experience. I look at mistakes as potential steppingstones to success. Don't be afraid to try new things. They can lead to a wonderful life experience.

  • When I've made a mistake, I've learned to never give up. I will get it right, and I will continue step-by-step movement forward until each step is mastered. I am grateful for all the feedback I receive, and thankful for all the helpful and loving people in my life who give that feedback.
