Have you ever been in a workplace situation or at home where you knew what would happen if you made a mistake? Mistakes are inevitable. We’ve all been there but what usually gets us into trouble is not necessarily the mistake we made but how we choose to deal with it. Afraid of what the consequences may be, we might become fearful of what will happen to us and therefore try to hide what we have done. But what if we knew that those around us would be compassionate and forgiving towards us if we do make a mistake? How then would we view mistakes and how would we feel if we made a mistake?
In this Wisdom Destination™, we look at mistakes as a learning experience and demonstrate the freedom that we feel when we know our mistakes will be met with compassion and forgiveness. You will understand the true meaning of forgiveness, the steps you can take to forgive, and the realization that anyone can do it. You will also discover how the workplace and home are transformed when the hidden secrets of forgiveness and compassion are unleashed leading to a workplace and a home we would all want to be part of. Relationships will improve and what you will gain is clarity and peace of mind.
