Rethinking Mistakes And Failures
Everyone makes mistakes and experiences failures. We all have shortcomings, weaknesses, and areas of lack. And many people are stuck in a fixed mindset, thinking that it’s just how they are.
But not everyone.
Some people have adopted a growth mindset, and see mistakes and failures in a different (and positive) light. Do you want to be one of them?
Join me in this episode as we discuss how to do just that.
Grab your Finish Strong Guide and together we’ll process what you’ve been through this year, no matter what 2020 has brought to you or taken from you. Let’s forgive the mistakes made, heal lingering wounds, reflect on the lessons learned, and finish the year strong!
