The chances of making a mistake today are fairly high.

The chances you learn from those mistakes are right up there as well.

We cannot avoid every pitfall, foible and fall. Not if we want to have a fulfilling life. It’s impossible.

Then why do so many of us view our stumbles as such a negative result? I imagine there are numerous reasons.

With everyone having a microphone (social media) in their hand announcing their “successes,” you’d think everyone hit the lottery.

Not so.

Chances are good, that’s not their real lives.

Chances are, that’s not how they feel 90% of the time throughout their day.

Chances are, we will take three steps forward and one back.

That’s okay. That’s life.

Chances that you make the same mistake tomorrow are dramatically decreased.

Chances are we learned from it.
