Keep Mistakes in Perspective

May 26, 2009 | by Aish.com

Some people tend to condemn themselves as total failures when they make a mistake. They tell themselves that because they have made a mistake they are "no good." Basically their attitude is, "If I'm not perfect, then I'm a complete failure."

The reality is that no one is perfect and no one is a complete failure. We are all on various stages along a continuum. It is more productive to recognize your situation as it really is (as best as you can) and work on improving. Then you will begin to tell yourself something along these lines, "I am aware of seven mistakes today. What can I do to avoid these mistakes in the future?"
