Chapter 7, Page 1, Book 18

Each day, we have opportunity to learn something new, apologize for our mistakes, and become better.

Lewis Howes

 grow from mistakes…forgive and move on

You make mistakes.  Mistakes don’t make you.

Maxwell Maltz

Holding on to the negative things that happened in the past allows them impact our present and our future.  We make mistakes but it’s no use regretting over what you should or should not have done. Regretting cannot reverse the situation.   If you focus moving ahead instead, there will be no time to think of the past or regret it.

We need to make peace with ourselves and our past.  Mistakes are the growing pains of wisdom. The best we can do is dust ourselves off and start over.  Letting go of the past means we do not look back, only forward.  

Mistakes show us what we need to learn.

Peter McWilliams

This was good to read, Ma, I have been making some mistakes at work that have gotten me down. Have to brush them off and move on and learn from them but not let them define me.

You've pinpointed what is, perhaps my biggest challenge … self forgiveness. Two of those I wronged are no longer on this earth, which makes apologies impossible; perhaps they've heard my prayer.

"We need to make peace with ourselves and our past."

You said it and I like it, but my crazy mind will go back and say remember when.......! Mostly I do good with it, but then I back-slide!
