Ninety-nine percent of all failure comes from people who have a habit of making excuses. George Washington Carver
It is very important that we accept responsibility for our failures. Accepting responsibility allows us the opportunity to grow. Until we acknowledge that we have made a mistake, the mistake cannot be corrected-which eventually leads to many more mistakes because we try to cover it up.
When we make mistakes, it teaches us what doesn't work in a particular situation, at that given time-which is a good thing. The key, however, is to allow the information received, to guide us in another direction that will help us accomplish that which we have set out to accomplish.
Let us be mindful of the decisions we make; making sure that they have been carefully and thoughtfully planned out. And when mistakes occur (which they will), acknowledge it, apologize for it (when necessary), and do whatever needs to be done to correct it.
Note: We must be careful not to conceal that which needs to be reveal so that God can heal. BE BLESSED!
...for there is nothing covered, that shall not be revealed and hid, that shall not be known.
