Often we are told that the most powerful people are the ones who never make mistakes.
We’re also told that making mistakes is a sign of weakness. That, if we make mistakes, we are not powerful.
So what do we do?
We hide them.
But when we look at the most powerful people in the world, their strength isn’t in not making mistakes.
Their strength lies in admitting that they made one.
It lies in making sure it never gets repeated.
And when another mistake comes their way, their strength lies in admitting it again!
We can’t escape making mistakes.
It’s the courage to own up to these mistakes that makes us the most powerful.
