Have a Small Funeral!

I just read an article about Whitney Houston and her funeral. We focus so much on the mistakes that are made during life that often our accomplishments are overlooked. You will fail many more times in life than you succeed. Thomas Edison did 9000 experiments before he discovered the light bulb. Michael Jordan was even cut from his high school basketball team!

So I say have a mini funeral for yourself before you go to bed. Sure, you made mistakes today. Maybe you could have done more. Maybe you could have made better decisions. At the end of the day, it’s time to live with your decisions. Have a mini funeral for today’s mistakes and put them to rest. Tomorrow is a brand new day. When you wake up, you will have a clean slate!

Yes, you will make mistakes today. Cut yourself some slack and push forward without mistakes from the past weighting you down! There is nothing you can do about the past. Someone once told me not to worry about things that are out of your control. Good advice!

Be successful today!
