Covering up a mistake
If a mistake is an opportunity for growth, then covering up a mistake is an act of self-suppression. There is freedom in overcoming the shame of not knowing something. Own your mistakes and accept that you do not have all of the answers. Trust that knowledge is abundant and there is someone on your team or in your circle that can provide whatever it is that you need. Don’t be afraid to ask for it! You will be surprised at how much more powerful you become when you speak the shame away.
