But it’s how we handle them that make us successful. Climbing into bed and pulling the blanket over our head is one option; whining is another.

Ask yourself: Based on this mistake, what opportunities did this situation create for me?

What other tips can you add to this list? It’s all about helping other Self-Starters on their journey.
