Words of Wisdom: “Learn From Your Mistakes”-Melanie Fiona

These Words of Wisdom from Melanie Fiona was a huge lesson I had to learn. Hopefully, you’re able to use it too!

In the clip, Melanie admitted that she took to heart an old African proverb: “Do not look where you fell. Look where you slipped.” Meaning to look at WHY you fell or why you failed or why you dropped the ball!

When we mess up, we tend to focus on the embarrassing failure or mistake. But, if we want to correct those things for the future, we need to take a look at our patterns and actions that led up to those mistakes. After we evaluate where we went wrong, we can take actions to do better in the future. Otherwise, we’re doomed to repeat our failures.

Watch Melanie speak on this below!
