Enjoying Your Mistakes

April 21, 2019

You have to enjoy your mistakes.

This is non-negotiable.

If you are spending all your time trying to prevent mistakes, this whole thing is going to become a drag, and sooner or later, you will just quit.

Or worse…you won’t.

“But, how can I enjoy my mistakes!? I hate making mistakes!”

You will enjoy your mistakes when they become fun. It’s your responsibility to figure out how to make this happen.

Here’s a tip: take a closer look at the discomfort caused by trying to prevent mistakes. Let yourself feel this discomfort. Completely.

If you let yourself make mistakes, you won’t have to feel this discomfort anymore.

What’s that worth to you?
