Affirmation for August 4, 2011: Making the Best of Mistakes

Mistakes are the portals of discovery.- James Joyce
Taking risks and making mistakes are essential to self-improvement. Don't fear them - embrace them. Justifications tend to serve the ego, alone, and don't offer much to learn from. Instead, focus your energy on analyzing the mistakes you've made, as well as your general condition and thinking going into them, constructively. If you see mistakes as challenges to better yourself, you'll see that perfectionists are truly missing out on some seriously beneficial self-help opportunities. 
Have an unmistakably awesome day!

Thank you for this very inspirtational quote. Mistakes are sometimes hard to review because they can make you feel flawed, especially if you are a perfectionist as I am.
