3# To help move yourself forward after a mistake
Being human means we will all make mistakes. The question is, how will you learn from your past mistakes and move forward quickly in a positive direction after you make one? When I started my first company Jobs In Nonprofits, I had the dream of being President of a large staffing firm. After a false start with the business, I realized I preferred leading workshops and trainings to managing a staff. I changed the business focus from staffing to speaking and trainings. I was well positioned to find my vocation as a speaker and trainer because of all my volunteer experience leading workshops. As Tony Robbins has said, sometimes you need to lose your dreams in order to find your destiny, and this was certainly true for me. It was my passion, and my volunteer experience teaching workshops, that led me to my destiny. God knows I will make many more mistakes in my life but, as a result of many years of volunteer work, I have a great support network to help guide me back to my social impact center and move me forward after my mistakes.
