When you make mistakes, when you fail at something, when you break something, instead of beating yourself up, instead of crying the whole day, instead of blaming yourself, do these three creative things, and you will be at peace with yourself.

  1. Instead of crying the whole day, recognize what has happened. Don’t pretend that nothing has happened. It does. Don’t look for who to blame. Don’t blame yourself. Don’t feel sorry for yourself. And you will be fine.
  2. Accept what went wrong. This is the biggest one that most people are avoiding. Why? Because it is taking responsibility. It is owning it. When you accept something, it now belongs to you. It is now your ultimate responsibility to fix it. It means that you have accepted the blame. If you mess up, don’t abandon your responsibility. Take it. Learn from it, and move on.
  3. Focus on how to fix it. When something goes wrong, don’t blame yourself. Accept what went wrong, and focus on finding the best solution to fix the problem. When you do that, solving the same or similar problems in the future will be easier for you and your team (if you have one)

Problem solving= Recognize it + Accept it+ Think solutions.

How To Accept What Is In Your Basket

Life throws different things at different people. Accept your own portion of what is given to you. It is for you, not for me. Your problem is for you. Your growth is for you. Your success is for you. Accept them. Celebrate them. The irony is that people want to be successful, but they are doing everything to avoid problems. How is that even possible?

You cannot succeed without solving real life problems. For example, your boss hired you to solve real life problems. You are not hired to earn money. You are hired to help solve problems, and then earn a living. You cannot earn a living without solving real life problems.

The trick to success is: “the bigger the problem you solve, the more you will earn for solving it.” If you want to earn more, do more.

Accept what the world has in store for you. But, regardless of what is in your basket, all you need to do is to embrace it with a positive attitude.
