Have you ever known, in your gut, the right thing to do and, for whatever reason, made the opposite choice? Even when it appears that we have made our greatest error, this is really an opportunity for us to use our free will and instincts to help us make better choices.
It’s important to remember that whenever we experience a perceived failure, it’s an opportunity to help us to grow and develop. Regardless of what you have done wrong, stubbornly refuse to beat yourself up. Whether we know it or not, each of us is doing the best we can with what we know at the time.
Whenever you face the dilemma of becoming aware that ignoring your intuition always gets you into trouble, this is the time to commit to not repeating the same mistake again. Trusting your inner wisdom and taking action helps to strengthen your intuition muscle.
Regardless of degrees, title, age, race or gender, we all have periods in our lives of of ups and downs, laughter and sorrow, and success and failure. Never be ashamed of yourself. Whenever you experience a disappointment, shame is the one emotion you do not want to spiral into.
Recovering from a mistake that you deeply regret involves:
- Letting the experience go
- Releasing shame
- Forgiving yourself
- Learning the lesson from the experience
- Surrounding yourself with people who inspire and motivate
