Dear Entrepreneur,

No matter how you try, you are prone to make mistakes. You will always make mistakes, and there is no way around it. But here is the thing—you can’t spend your life avoiding mistakes. No one can. Berating yourself because of your mistakes will only deplete your resources and limit your future development.

Rather, look at yourself through the lens of ‘kindness’—this will stave off any feeling of shame and guilt. It helps you realize that just like everyone else, you’re flawed and imperfect—and it’s okay.

With love,
