Hey, I Made a Mistake
One of the things that separates what I teach and what
Dr. Maltz taught about “mind power” is the importance
of making mistakes.
If you read the words of so many of today’s “thinkers” on
subjects like the Law of Attraction – you’ll find that there
is rarely any talk about mistakes or failure.
People then develop the notion that if they’re making mistakes
or failing – that they’re “attracting” it. In some cases this is most
But you’ve got to look at the bigger picture to see the bigger
Mistakes are HOW we learn everything we know. From learning
to crawl, walk, run, talk and feed ourselves. We make mistakes
and correct course until the only thing your brain remembers
is the “right” way to do something.
You learned to write by making mistakes.
You learn to become a great athlete the same way.
Getting back to the metaphor Dr. Maltz so ably used – missile
technology – a torpedo is “off target” most of the time on the
way to its pre-programmed destination.
So are you and that’s the way it’s supposed to be. That’s the
way you succeed.
And so, if you’re afraid of making mistakes – if you keep yourself
from doing because you’re worried you may do the wrong thing –
then take comfort in the words of Elbert Hubbard, who said:
“The greatest mistake a man can make is to be afraid of making
Oh, how true.
This does not mean that you deliberately make mistakes. You’ll make
plenty without trying to do so. But when you make a mistake, instead
of whining or pouting about it, make a note and determine how to
correct course. Most importantly, keep moving.
On top of the above, rejoice when you make a mistake. You’re now
one or more steps closer to your goal.
P.S. All TRUMP CARDS are being mailed this weekend. My apologies
for the delay. The first rendition of this special report was 4400
words. When I received it from Vinnie, the guy who laid it out for
me, I read it and declared it “not good enough yet.” There was so
much more I wanted to say. This, to me, was a mistake. I gladly
got back to the piece and when I made the final period, it was
7990 words. Almost double. The result of me catching my mistake
brought forth something a whole lot better. Hope you feel the
same way – http://psycho-cyb.com/trump_card.html
