How To Use Your Mistakes To Take Your Booklet Business To The Next Level

Have you ever wondered why the big guys in any field made it to the top, while plenty of other people who were just as qualified didn’t make it?  The big guys did two things that the others didn’t.  They stayed focused, and they didn’t let their mistakes get in their way.

Mistakes Happen To Everyone

Everyone makes mistakes.  It’s part of being human.  But, when you focus on your mistakes too much it keeps you from moving forward.

Some people are so afraid of making a mistake that they never even try to realize their dreams.  They’re worried they will mess things up or that they’ll make a mistake and someone will become angry with them.  But, these things happen in life anyway, even when you’re not trying to make your dream a reality.

When you work for someone else, if you make a mistake, you might have to deal with an angry boss.  Or, if you make a mistake at home, you might have to deal with an angry spouse or children.  Sometimes a mistake is as simple as purchasing the wrong gift for someone.  You thought they would like it, but it really wasn’t for them.  And then you have to deal with their dissappointment.

You’re going to make mistakes.  It’s just a question of when, and where and how.

Make Mistakes And Rise To The Top

Since you’re going to make mistakes in life anyway, why not make some of those mistakes while you’re trying to achieve your dream of becoming an author?  Nobody knows what they’re doing when they start. Not really.  You can have a pretty good idea of what to do and where you want to be a year from now, but your booklet adventure will be full of twists and turns that you can’t predict when you’re starting out.  Some great things will happen along the way, but you’ll also make a few mistakes.

The key is to not allow those mistakes to get in the way of your progress. You want to use your mistakes to help you get to the next level.  That means you learn from them, fix the problem as best you can, and move forward.  That’s what the big guys do, and that’s what you need to do too if you want to rise to the top.

Focus On Your Business As A Whole

Not allowing mistakes to hinder your progress means not focusing on your mistakes.  Your mistakes are simply a part of your learning process, and no matter how far down the road into your booklet adventure you go, you will always make a mistake here or there – even after being in business for many years. You won’t make as many mistakes as when you first started out because you will have learned from those mistakes.  But, there will always be new mistakes that crop up from time to time.

The big guys in the world of business don’t focus on their mistakes. They make them and move on, gleaning what educational nuggets they can from them.  But, they focus on where they want to go next, or where they want to be in a year, or what their next move will be.  They focus on their business as a whole. If they didn’t, they wouldn’t be able to make it to the top.

Now you have a choice to make.  You can move forward and make progress, or you can allow your own mistakes or fear of them to stand in your way.  Since you’re going to make mistakes anyway just by living your life, why not make a few of those mistakes while achieving your wildest dreams?

To your riches!
