Mistakes and setbacks are stepping stones to success.

Mistakes and setbacks happen in everyone’s life. I make mistakes and have setbacks, too. However, all successes involve obstacles that must be overcome.

I avoid negative feelings when it comes to mistakes and setbacks. Instead, I use them to my advantage.

It is impossible to avoid all obstacles when pursuing goals. Negative outcomes are learning opportunities. I learn from each imperfect result and develop a more effective approach for the next time.

I know with each setback that I am getting closer to my dream. In fact, the faster I make mistakes, the sooner I become successful!

Avoiding mistakes is a sure way to avoid success.

I am confident in myself and my abilities. A few mistakes here and there are to be expected. I always have faith in my ability to be successful. I am comfortable with mistakes.

When I am feeling discouraged, I remember that success has an unexpected path. There are always a few surprises along the way. I remember how I grow each time I deal with a mistake or setback.

Each journey to success helps me to grow as a person.

Today, I am free of concern regarding mistakes. I welcome mistakes into my life because I know that mistakes actually bring me closer to attaining my goals. Mistakes and setbacks are stepping stones to success.

Self-Reflection Questions:

  1. What is the greatest obstacle I have overcome so far in my life?
  2. What obstacles am I currently dealing with? What can I do to overcome them?
  3. How have I grown from past mistakes and setbacks?
