I am about to reveal a fact that some folks have forgotten about themselves!
You make mistakes!
You are not perfect!
Follow the three step process of the Triple A’s – Admit, Address, Act.
Once that fact is truly acknowledged, what will you do the next time you misstep?
There is a fallacy that the first to come forward, apologize or say, “I’m sorry” loses their position of dominance and is classified as the weakest.
Quite the contrary … Being the first doesn’t demonstrate weakness, it expresses strength, courage and recognition of the issue.
It also lifts the weight of the issue off your back and conscience.
Wow, I feel lighter already; don’t you?
Stop worrying about who comes forth first.
Concern yourself with being the “bigger” person who does the right thing!
You can be the bravest, the strongest, and the happiest – if you apologize, forgive, and forget.
Don’t just take my word!
See for yourself!
