We have inhibitions for a reason. Things that make us stop. Machines have no inhibitions, they stop when they’re told to stop or when they can no longer go on. We are not machines and neither should try to be.
” A mistake has to be seen as an opportunity. “
To lead you have to embrace your mistakes as opportunity.
To care for yourself you have to embrace your mistakes as opportunity.
Mistakes give us pause. They give us opportunities to inspire, humble ourselves, to offer and ask for help. Mistakes give us chances to connect with others.
Embracing mistakes as a part of the process, as a gift, and as an opportunity is the best cure for the impostor syndrome. For an impostor to make a mistake is to be revealed, but to be a master is not to be perfect.
It’s to smile and dream of the possibilities that mistake now offers you, and then get to work.
I don’t think making a mistake will ever feel good, but I think it is possible to not let a fear of them keep us for trying.
