A recent post by Seth Godin reminded me how great it is to be able to admit when one has made a mistake.
It’s not always great to make the mistake. In fact, often it’s painful, hurtful and downright uncomfortable.
However, when we can admit we made the mistake, take full responsibility for it, and then correct it to the best of our ability, we have taken a giant step in our personal growth as well as our ability to lead and influence others.
I would go as far as to say:
Being able to admit when one is wrong is not only one of the first signs of maturity, but perhaps the foundation of any type of growth and effectiveness.
Yes, mistakes are a key to growth, IF we are able to do that difficult admitting thing. 🙂
Have you experienced the same? How did you grow from a mistake?
