All of us have made mistakes, some big ones, some small ones. Regardless of the nature or size of the mistake, what you do after the mistake is made that will determine if the mistake is a setback or a set up for a breakthrough!
More often than not, when we make a mistake, our first reaction is embarrassment, followed by a cover-up/correction with the hope that no one saw the mistake. If someone has noticed the mistake and asks about it, the first position many take is either denial or justification.
Neither will produce the set up for a breakthrough. Rather, they close the window of opportunity for positive change.
