How many of us will ever acknowledge or take responsibility for their unintentional or intentional mistakes. Not many will be willing. Hardly do we take stock of our past as useful lessons to learn and improve on our mistakes or the wrong decisions and choices we once did or made. Today we are obsessed for innovation which is a back pedaled revolution of retrogression. Honestly, what we become is a part of the seeds we’ve sown which has become the recipe of our poor results and outcomes. I know that deep down we store and hold onto lot of negative energies. This is used to prove our wrong stance  on our behalf and principal.

I think that there are untold blessings hidden within every mistake. As a kid we used to commit mistakes and keep learning from them. When a child makes mistakes we don’t give it a thought because we know that it is only through their mistake they will learn things in a better way. Then as adults why are we so hard on ourselves when we make a mistake? Don’t you think the same rules apply here as well. I believe  that if mistakes are not made then we would not learn anything and we wouldn’t grow smart advisor.
I believe that learning lessons from our mistakes is important as we will keep those lessons in mind and never repeat the mistakes again. The lines from Louise Hay convey exactly the same meaning.

One has to understand and learn from one’s mistake big or small. It’s not necessary that always we learn from our mistakes only. We can learn from mistakes of others also.

 It is important to own our mistakes I believe that this is where most of us fail. The reason being that we blame others for our mistakes as we love playing the victim card and stay clean. If we blame others for our mistakes we don’t learn anything from it and keep repeating it again and again. 

 In order to turn your mistake in the blessing from it is very important to own the mistake if you have done it. Once a mistake is made  we do get chance to correct it and when we have the chance to correct a mistake we shouldn’t let the chance slip from our hand. We should correct a mistake and learn from it so that next time in the same situation we’ll keep this learning in mind.

I also feel that no matter how bad mistake may seem there are certainly going to be plenty of things to be grateful for. For this we need to look at our mistakes in-depth. Think about 2 things 
I} What did I learn from the mistake?
II} What are the good things that came out of it? 
Doing this is going to help you in the long run. Just try doing it each time you think you made a mistake.
