“If you mess up, it’s not your parents’ fault, so don’t whine about your mistakes, learn from them.” – Charles J. Sykes
This book, Permission to Screw Up by Kristen Hadeed changed my mindset.
I do not think I could have read this book at a better time in my life. It renewed a passion inside of me that was slowly starting to burn out.
I have always been a perfectionist through and through, it has gotten me far in life but also been a tremendous burden that I have had to carry around.
This book showed me how common and necessary it is to completely screw up. The lessons it teaches you are some of the best things you can learn, also the stories that come from screwing up are ones that last a lifetime.
I read this book recently at a time where I was making a lot of big decisions. I wanted to make the right now, but in reality, there was no right answer. Make a decision and run with it, if it is the wrong one you will figure it out.
What I learned from this book is that you have to trust yourself, so much so that when you mess up you trust yourself to fix things too.
Once you have accomplished that, you can take on everything. This book will give you the motivation to do so.
