I screwed up.
Three simple words yet so hard to muster.
Admitting when you’re wrong is never easy – no one likes to showcase their weak spot.
Yet having the ability to acknowledge when you came up short can literally change your life.
Growing up I carried the notion that messing up was bad. I was too good to fail. I was always right.
Wearing that armor blinded me from seeing my imperfect ways. Perhaps you can relate.
When you mess up say so – no need to hide behind the illusion you’re infallible.
Step up and admit when you’re in the wrong. Your boss, your spouse, and your friends will understand.
Then do your best to prevent it from happening again.
