The only way to avoid mistakes is to remain stagnant
Today, I will accept the fact that the only way for mistakes to be avoided is to remain stagnant.
Whereby that will prevent me from making errors, it will also prevent me from the possibility of enjoying my life, as well as growing. I will therefore move forward, fully aware of the fact that the unexpected can – and most likely will – happen, but that I can handle them when they do..
I am a fully functional being with the ability to handle set-backs and errors. Knowing that makes me stronger and happier.
