Everyone makes mistakes. I used to get super upset when I goofed up.
But guess what? I learned that if I took a moment to think about what went wrong, those mistakes could teach me something important!
That’s right – mistakes have a lesson hidden inside, kind of like a surprise in a cereal box. Let’s talk about the mistakes I made in 2022 and what I learned from them.
Mistake #1: Judging by Numbers
Have you ever thought someone was cool because they had lots of followers or likes on social media?
Me too. I used to pick people to help me based on how many subscribers or likes they had.
But I found out that just because someone is popular doesn’t mean they’re the best person to help you.
Imagine picking a soccer team captain based on how many stickers they have in their collection.
Silly, right? Sometimes you have to meet someone or try out what they offer before deciding if they’re a good match for you.
It’s like test-driving a bike before buying it.
Mistake #2: Trying to Be Everywhere at Once
When I started my own business, I wanted to be on every social media platform.
Imagine trying to play soccer, basketball, and baseball all at the same time! It’s too much. I learned that I need to pick what’s most important and focus on that.
Now, I know I should build my email list, work on my podcast, and then think about social media.
By the way, just posting lots of videos everywhere doesn’t always help your business. It’s like planting seeds – sometimes you have to wait to see if they grow.
Mistake #3: Needing Everything Right Now
Ever wanted something so bad that you couldn’t wait? Yep, that was me.
But I learned that building something awesome, like a treehouse or a business, takes time and effort.
And yes, some people might finish faster, but that’s okay. Everyone has their own pace.
There’s a cool story in the Bible about God shaping clay. It reminds me that we’re all works in progress.
Sometimes, we think we’ve got everything figured out, but then – whoops! – we make a mistake and learn something new.
Looking back, I see that 2022 taught me to be more patient. We all want things now, but good things take time.
Looking Ahead to 2023
With all these lessons from 2022, I’m excited about 2023!
With the help of my coach, I believe this year will be fantastic.
As long as I keep learning and stay patient, anything is possible.
Remember, mistakes have the power to teach us something if we’re willing to listen.
So, here’s to making mistakes and learning along the way!
