It’s a simple but strong message. It’s very important to remember that what you put out, is what you’ll get back. Being angry, or bitter, or whatever other negative emotion you’re feeling and portraying is only going to lead to the same negative energy coming back at you. Try not to let your emotions get in the way of how you deal with problems. This not only leads to more positive interactions, but you will start to feel better and begin to have a positive outlook.

Here’s another way to look at things, treat the world as you want the world to treat you. You want to be a successful boss and kill it at everything you do? Then work hard, push boundaries, and don’t stop trying. You want to be well-regarded, well-respected, and admired? Then be genuine, be real, and keep to your own business. All in all, you get what you give, so make sure everything you do and everything you say brings you a little closer to who you want yourself to be.

Whatever this quote says to you, try keep it in your mind this week and remember it at times when you may not feel at your best. The power of positivity is real, you just first have to be it to see it.

Have you ever said, “I’ll never do that again,” only to find yourself doing the exact same thing? If so, you’re not alone. All of us have repeated some of our mistakes at one time or another.

But making the same mistakes over and over can be costly in more ways than one. The good news is, you can take steps to learn from your mistakes. Then, instead of repeating them again, you’ll gain valuable wisdom that will help you in the future.

Here are five ways to learn from your mistakes:

1. Recognize Your Errors

Before you can learn from your mistakes, you have to accept full responsibility for your role in the outcome. That can be uncomfortable sometimes, but until you can say, “I messed up,” you aren’t ready to change.

2. Ask Yourself Hard Questions

Reflect on the situation and ask yourself:

• What went wrong?

• What could I do better next time?

• What did I learn from this?

Write down your responses and you’ll see the situation a little more clearly.

3. Create A Plan

Beating yourself up for your mistakes won’t help you down the road. It’s important to realize how you can do better in the future.

Make a plan that will help you avoid making a similar mistake. Be as detailed as possible but remain flexible since your plan may need to change.

Whether you find an accountability partner or you track your progress on a calendar, find a way to hold yourself accountable.

4. Find Ways To Make It Harder To Mess Up

Don’t depend on willpower alone to prevent you from making the mistake again.

5. Make A List Of Why You Don’t Want To Make The Mistake Again

Sometimes, it only takes one weak moment to indulge in something you shouldn’t. Creating a list of all the reasons why you should stay on track could help you stay self-disciplined, even during the toughest times.

Move Forward With Your New-Found Wisdom

Sometimes, mistakes aren’t just one big blunder. Instead, they’re a series of little choices that lead to failure.  Pay attention to your errors, no matter how big or how small they might seem. And recognize that each mistake can be an opportunity to become better.

Stop, take a moment and look around you. There are lots of things and situations that need to change. If you are like a lot of people, you feel powerless to do anything about any of it.

You are not powerless! You can make a difference.

Believe that you have a ton of power to create change, and you can do so anytime YOU want.

You have the power to change your own life, other people’s lives, your community, in an organization, and plenty of other places.

You can create change with a smile, a book, or just a random act of kindness. You can do it by loving and by forgiving.

You can make your difference feeding the homeless or donating your time at your church.

There are other ways to make a difference—even a small difference.

You can change how someone feels with just a smile. That’s power.

And you can change your life in an instant. Try changing your attitude from negative to positive. Try walking every evening rather than sitting in front of a computer all day and then in front of the television all night. Decide to eat a different diet or get a new job.

You do have personal power. You can affect change in your own life. Even one small difference can cause a change in the lives of those around you.

Begin using that power in ways that make a difference—whether you smile at a stranger, motivate or support a friend, exercise your personal power in ways that make you feel empowered—and that result in a difference in your life, first, and in the world around you, second.

Write down all the different ways you could make a difference. Brainstorm! Come up with some options.

Then choose one option from your list, and do it this week!

Do something that gives you the sense that you can make a difference. Even better, make a difference. Create change with your actions.

Use your power to create positive and meaningful change.
