Inspirational Quotes About Making Mistakes...

In this online edition of The Monthly Marvel, I talk about an inspirational quotation about making mistakes. We discover how a member of the Self Help Collective made a series of RELATIONSHIP MISTAKES. And you can also find out what's new here at SelfHelpCollective.com too, and more!...

And all you have to do is read, watch and share (Recommend on Facebook, retweet on Twitter, or just share your views - thanks.)

Welcome to February 2012's Monthly Marvel...

The Monthly Marvel Online is simply the online monthly edition of the Weekly Wonder with "extras" - hello and welcome! :-)

So 2012 is 1 month old and counting. And I'm wondering: how many mistakes have YOU made so far this year? Yes, it's good to learn from mistakes but not so that you never try out anything new, never take any risks.

You might think that my 'letting go' aim for the year (see last month's Monthly Marvel) might mean that I'm going to be avoiding mistakes big time. But I don't think so. Actually, I see this year as a way to REALLY FOCUS ON BEING - and on noticing what comes! Which is another way of saying that I'm going to allow myself to make mistakes, and see what I notice about the process, notice about my feelings and the resultant consequences (and what I notice about my feelings about those consequences, etc.).

It is, actually, a classic act of 'doing, without worrying about what will happen from that doing'...

And maybe that's what living a good life is all about - giving it your best shot, without always knowing how it's going to turn out! Maybe that's what separates the winners from the losers, those that succeed from those that fail.

(Or maybe it's just an excuse, Sophia, for outright bad behaviour! Hee hee!)

Anyway, this is why I'm going to recommend this page within the SelfHelpCollective for you to check out this month: fear of failure - enjoy!

This issue I want to look at making mistakes in relationships ("My marriage is ending"), submitted by Richard. Richard admits that he made mistakes in his relationship with his wife, but believes it isn't too late to make things right - or isn't it?...

Totally Agree!
by: A Monthly Marvel Subscriber

I totally agree with Sophia, mistakes are a great part of our lives...but what I don't understand is people who are judgmental towards us, as if they themselves never put a foot wrong.

I mean its only a mistake if you don't learn from it but it becomes a lesson if you learn from it right Steve?

Thanks for responding. Understand your concerns. Maybe this quote will help:
"How people treat you is their karma; how you react is yours." -- Wayne Dyer

Or, put another way, people are often not going to be too forgiving when you make mistakes (and that includes you, when others make mistakes that affect you). This is called a consequence. Note, though, that the more a person is happy with themselves the less they judge others when they make a mistake...

So I say keep on making mistakes, and learn to accept other people's judgements - for that is what they are: other people's judgements!
