Commit To Applying Lessons Learned


When growing up as a child, the concept of learning alesson becomes so routine, that many of us just set it asideas unimportant like many other principles that otherwiseshould be heeded.

It is so true that all of us are mortal. Furthermore, all of usare fallible and no one is absolutely perfect. However, thereare some people who would argue this about themselves orsomeone they know.

My contention is the people who perpetually make manycrucial mistakes in their lives and continue to make theexact ones again, are not taking the necessary steps tocorrect themselves.

Simply put, carelessness, laziness, or mere insecurity inoneself are the primary reasons lessons due to mistakesare not applied.

Changing ones mindset and attitude towards selfprogression has significant importance in this area ofgrowth.

Sure, there are many people out there who will almostalways be making mistakes in perpetuity, but certainly thatshouldn't mean that you have to be one of them. Takingcontrol of your life is an excellent first step.

Life does not have to be extremely complicated. It is aknown fact that when people simplify their lives they arenot only more happy, but more productive in any given taskbecause the mind has less to wonder about.

Listing or ranking things of importance in one's mindassists in shaving down the myriad of less important thingsthat always seem to hinder our lives. Moreover, examiningmistakes much like a football player watching film theMonday after a big game and then deciding a betterapproach will change the outcome to a positive rather thana negative.

So why is it so hard to apply a learned lesson?

Just learning the lesson is what many of us do, but that ismerely half the battle. The other aspect is actually settingyour mind by consciously programming it to steer awayfrom this mistake. It is like staring at the problem with amicroscope and discovering reasons why you made thischoice.

This part is what I call conscious recognition, where yourconscious and subconscious are on the same wavelengthrather than opposing each other.

The concept of consciously recognizing something aswrong can be applied not only in lessons learned, butpractically every facet of life. In taking a little more time tothink a mistake out, you are literally dissecting apart eacharea that needs to be addressed.

Certainly, most people will not apply a learned lessonunless they want to or unless the law forces them to. Yet,one must truly desire to apply a lesson before it happensagain, or that person will only know that it is a mistake andnot do anything about it.

Much like an alcoholic must will him or herself into treatingthe disease by coming to peace with the thought of livingtheir lives without a drink, people must make firmresolutions to fix the areas of their lives that are broken.

Procrastinating and lying to oneself about applying lessonstoday, rather than tomorrow, makes for a compromisingenvironment when one already knows that applying thelesson is in their best interest.

Wanting to make changes and becoming a better person is adaily task, not yearly. Work is what it is, but the rewards ofliving cleaner always outweigh that work.
