This is another Periscope accompanied post. . .In this post I discuss three consistent mistakes I finally stopped making.
Whenever you try to do anything worthwhile, mistakes are inevitable because most of the time you're entering uncharted territory and have no idea what you're doing. That's why you always hear people say "learn from your mistakes". Growth and success are by-products of mistakes and lessons learned.
My top three:
1. Inconsistency - Blogging off & on, not following up on connections made, doing "just enough".
2. Immobility- Being lazy, staying in my comfort zone, trying to force situations and procrastinating.
3. In my feelings/sparing others feelings - Not closing doors, being distracted worrying about what others are doing.
I have definitely learned from all of these mistakes but I feel with age comes wisdom and I am focused on not repeating these mistakes. I correct and adjust my own behavior as my journey continues to unfold. I'm recognizing my power, acknowledging my talent, being intentional and making solid connections.
I also wake up every day & thank God for the blessings & when I'm tempted even just a little to backslide I imagine that today could be my last day on earth & I go get stuff done! Our days are numbered, so I would encourage you to do more of what makes you happy. Don't sweat the small stuff and love those who love you!
