Learn from your mistakes

Wednesday, January 09, 2013

When you make mistakes, don't beat yourself up. Instead look to see where you messed up and why. Plan how you will handle it the next time those temptations come to you. Then check to see if you did did not give into the temptation would you have met your daily goals. If you would have then put that in your plan as a reminder. If not then see what other mistakes you made and do the same with them. Be ready with your plan when temptation comes and be proud of yourself that you are learning so much.

    This is something we really need to learn - ONLY purpose for looking back is to LEARN from what we did so we can do better the NEXT time.

    Great advise! I try to see a pattern to why I give in to temptation. Am I buying something that I know is my weakness? Celebrate each little victory!
