Keep the Right Perspective on Bad Experiences
By John C. Maxwell
When you have a bad experience, which of the following phrases is most likely to represent your thinking?
- I never wanted to do that task to start with, so who cares?
- I’m a failure and my life is over.
- I want to give up and never try again.
- I’m gaining experience from my mistakes; I wonder if I can get some help.
- I now know three ways that won’t work, so I’ll try again.
