- Mistakes are life’s way of teaching you.
- Your capacity for occasional blunders
from your capacity to reach your goals.
- Search for the seed of good
in every adversity.
- You will learn things in adversity
that you would never have discovered without trouble.
When you make a mistake in life … , or get ridiculed or rejected,
look at mistakes as detours on the road to success, and view ridicule as ignorance.
After a rejection, take a look at your BAG.
B is for Blessings. Things you are endowed with that you often take for granted like life itself, health, living in an abundant country, family, friends, career.
A is for accomplishments. Think of the many things you are proud of that you have done so far.
And G is for Goals. Think of your big dreams and plans for the future that motivate you.
If you took your BAG – blessings, accomplishments and goals – to a party, and spread them on the floor, in comparison to all your friends and the people you admire, you’d take your own bag home, realizing that you have as much going for yourself as anyone else.
Always view rejection as part of one performance, not as a turndown of the performer.
