In this episode of Ask Denis, Denis talks about how to learn from your mistakes. Everyone makes mistakes along their journey; the question is, “what do we do with those mistakes?” Do we just forget about it and stop right there or do we move forward from there and learn from it?

In this episode, I talk about the following:

  • People make mistakes all the time
  • How to learn from your mistakes
  • I share a story of a woman who made a mistake that cost their company $3-million
  • Three questions to ask yourself every time you make a mistake
  • Share your learning experiences with others

Key Takeaways:

  • Mistakes are made for us to learn
  • None of us are in the positions we are in today without making mistakes
  • Have the courage and be bold to make decisions
  • Acknowledge the fact that you made a mistake
