Mistakes are worth making when they become opportunities to truly apologize. People who refuse to acknowledge they have screwed up, that aren’t humble enough to be contrite, and don’t apologize reap what they sew.
When you make a mistake, the first part is simply owning up to the situation. The humility that comes from showing that you are perfectly imperfect leads to greater trust and to greater opportunity to serve others. Once you acknowledge a mistake and are humble enough to be “flawed”, a heartfelt, genuine apology can make it all better.
Mistakes aren’t mistakes anymore if you have a true AHA moment – they become part of your history, your mystique and your possibilities going forward.
