Impactful Mistakes

Many potentially great leaders suffer from fear of failure. They place perfection over progress and suffer from what has become known as “imposter syndrome.” They wonder what will happen if someone finds out they are not perfect.

What if, instead, they started to view failure as a friend – a friend that helps them see a deeper part of themselves, to grow and become stronger, and to have a greater impact on others?

Mistakes are Points of Impact

John Maxwell says it well: “To impress others, tell them about your successes and how you achieved them; to impact others, tell them about your mistakes and how you fixed them.”

Think about this.

  • What mistakes have you made in your life, career, and business?
  • Why did you make them?
  • What did you learn from them?
  • What did you do to overcome those mistakes?
  • How can you use what you have learned to help others?

Would you want to learn how to make your fortune from someone to whom a fortune was handed; or from someone who made a fortune, lost it, and made it again and now tells you how to create it but also how not to lose it?

Would you want to learn how to start a business from someone who started one and never made a mistake in any area? Or from someone who made mistakes but developed systems and solutions to overcome them? (And, by the way, if you are thinking that first type of business owner exists, think again.)

It could very well be that the one thing you fear or fail to reveal is the one thing that people need to learn from you.

Take some time to listen to this inspiring and impactful podcast lesson with John Maxwell to learn how you can not only get over your fear of mistakes but use them as a catalyst for impact.
