Did you learn the right lessons?



Don’t glorify your success in spite of your plans not going accordingly. There is a reason why we call certain things fluke. Go ahead and breathe a huge sigh of relief. Tell yourself you are lucky but you will do better next time. Learn from it. Not be proud of it. There is nothing to be proud of when your plans didn’t work. It means you screwed up! When you are proud of your screw-ups you will miss the learning lessons.

Don’t let your “successful” screw ups go to waste. Likewise, when someone else succeeds in spite of their plans going awry – learn from them. Don’t glorify them. They have paid the fees; you get to learn the lesson for free.

Will you be so lucky the next time?

Think well of people, speak well of people, do well by people.

Will you be rewarded?
