Proverbs Day 2

People who accept discipline are on the pathway to life,
but those who ignore correction will go astray. (Proverbs 10:17 NLT)

There’s no shame in making mistakes, which are inevitable. Failing to learn from our mistakes, though, puts us in a very precarious position. I am always proud of people who overcome their mistakes through determination and sacrifice. Their stories inspire others and prove that the short-term consequences don’t have to be the end of the story.

But without that willingness to acknowledge that the discipline was needed, it’s hard to make the necessary course correction. And so sometimes the biggest challenge for us as leaders is helping people see the value in taking ownership of their mistakes.
