How to Read the Perfection In Your Errors


Yes, you read correctly.  P-E-R-F-E-C-T-I-O-N in your errors.
Seems crazy, huh?

Again, in order to learn reading the perfection in your errors, you have to treat errors as data.

Part of your unique life path data.

Train yourself to look for the light underneath the ashes of your errors.

In that light is your way to wholeness.

Think about it, if you believe to some extent, the concept of “your thoughts create your reality” is somewhat true…You, only you are the creator of your story.  Errors included.

You created the whole thing,  completely.

With everything you had. And everything you had not. What you had not is what you have to fill with new information.

Well, you had more or less than the rest of the world.

But you had what you had. No more nor less.

You didn’t know better. You were missing data.

Sometimes you didn’t know there were other options because you were never exposed to those options.

You just didn’t know.

So, are you going to punish yourself for life because you made a mistake due to lack of knowledge?

How cruel can it be to pay such a price for not knowing…

Wouldn’t you think that pretending we  know  everything is unrealistic and leaves you with a sense of inadequacy?

Of course, inadequacy that can be erased from the equation by accepting the truth and finding the adequate information.

Besides, you don’t know right now when you are hurting and recriminating yourself for being human, if this error is one of the best things that happened to you.

Lack of knowledge can be very grey, like the ashes.

Every time you make a mistake, you are facing an opportunity to see yourself as you are, evaluate what you have, what you don’t have and make adjustments. Adding new data.

Most of the time a life changing decision comes from those errors.

That’s right! That’s their purpose.

Opportunities to find the light of knowledge underneath the ashes of ignorance.

When the dust of emotion settles on the ground, and you  revisit the data base of the past, the past becomes
a vast source of information, information that tells you that maybe your errors were there to be crafted with the
big picture. And you don’t need to keep repeating them…any more.

I think the hardest part is accepting that part of us is ignorant. Simply human. There is a saying in Spanish that says: “Nadie nació sabido.” Nobody was born known.

Errors disappear in the big picture.

Sometimes what was perceived as a mistake or a problem becomes a blessing in spite of the pain you had to endure.
When the dust settles.

In the end is like living in the present visualizing a movie in the future. The movie of your own life story,
you are actively and consciously creating in the present. With what you had and with what you had not.

Finding the meaning in your errors and trials opens up a rainbow of information you didn’t have. Information you can choose to acquire.

Things you were not exposed too.

Don’t punish yourself for not knowing.

Just look for the perfection and leave the pain behind.

After the dust settles on the ground.

After the dust settles on the ground, I invite you to share the stories of big errors in  your life that were transformed to blessings in the big picture. It is a great topic for conversation, because it helps reinforce the idea that it’s OK not to know. Is even better because it opens up new dimensions. The world is full of successful people who fell on their knees of human ignorance and embraced the new,  before they got successful. Success and failure are 2 parts of the same coin. Not 2 coins.
