Tuesday, August 11, 2020 – It may take longer than expected to learn a new skill, but once you do, you will never forget it. Allow yourself to be a beginner and make some mistakes in the early stages. Every error is a lesson that will put you closer to mastery. Think of a baby who is learning to walk. Every time it falls, you give it praise and encouragement, rather than harsh criticism. Positive feedback breeds success, so treat yourself the same way. Give yourself a gold star for being brave enough to try something new; it takes courage.
