The best thing about learning from the mistakes of others is that you can develop and practice techniques to avoid them.  This was something that I was fortunate enough to learn early on in my career – a piece of advice I received that I’ll never forget.

So, that’s why in the Motivation Series 101 report, we’ve not only discussed what the 7 mistakes people make at work that limits their motivation, performance and success but we’ve also discussed ways you can avoid falling victim to them.

I’m not saying that you’re never going to make mistakes because mistakes are actually a good way to learn but, in the report, we’re giving you a heads up on what to be aware of to minimise the impact of these mistakes.

For instance, one way to avoid some of the mistakes is to “invest in yourself”.

I’m a big reader and supporter of ongoing learning. When you look at some of the most successful people in the world today (who are most fulfilled in their lives) they are constantly reaching out for more information. This includes learning from others – through mentoring, coaching or reading biographies – but also includes seeking out knowledge through engaging with people in their surrounding community.

By investing in yourself you’ll constantly learn new ways of approaching challenging situations and understand that most successful people have been through their fair share of ups and downs along the way.

This is just one of the methods you can use to avoid some of the mistakes mentioned in the Motivation Series 101 report.  Hopefully you can use the 7 I’ve included to better your career and life day-to-day.
