The Game of Life Begins Again Now

April 1st, 2014 by Bob Burg

The Game of Life Begins Again Now - Bob BurgAre you disappointed in yourself that you made a mistake you simply should not have made? We’ve all been there. We all (at least, I) continue to “be there” from time-to-time.

Will you be disappointed in yourself  in the future because you make a mistake that — based on past mistakes — you’ll know better than to make again? We all (at least, I) will.

And, it’s okay. We’re human beings and we make mistakes, even when we know better. This is not to say that we should be lazy in our thinking and not care. It’s even fine to be disappointed in ourselves when we do that which we know better than.

The good news: we can continue to keep growing, and taking aim to not make those same mistakes in the future.

The GREAT news: the Game of Life always begins again now!
