Your decisions contribute to your development and are an integral aspect of your evolving journey, yet, they are separate from who you truly are. A decision that fails to produce the intended outcome is in no way a confirmation of your character. Albeit, there can be dire effects on your ability to trust yourself and maintain your self-esteem. You can avoid becoming your decisions by affirming that a ‘bad decision’ is an experience and you can choose differently, next time. You need to avoid lingering in the past and mulling over the circumstances that led to your perceived error in judgment.
Mistakes are opportunities to bring forth your innate wisdom. Your innate wisdom is only activated when it is called upon by circumstances. The key to life success is learning from your experiences and looking to the future. The future is what is yet in your power. No one hits the bull’s eye of success every time one aims to complete a goal.
