Mistakes are just mis-takes – much like when you film a movie and you need to have a number of takes to get a scene right, the same thing is applied to life in general. I takes practice to get it right or as close as you can to what you want.

So, along the way, especially when trying something new, expect some bumps. Expect some mistakes – but consider them mis-takes and feedback, not failure.

Today, I’ll share some mis-takes I made along the way, and maybe these will resonate with you to pause and reflect on some of the mis-takes you have made along the way, and how you can rectify and course-correct things for you if you’re newer to lifting weights or a seasoned pro.
