Turning your weakness into a strength
or turn your mistake into a success
I parked my scooter in front of the bank. It was pretty crowded, not only in the parking area but also inside. The security person at the entrance told me, that they will not serve me anymore today. So I went back to my scooter. When parking out, I touched the next scooter. That one fell over and another one fell over as well. So I stopped to put the other scooters back up. The first one did not have damage. But from the second one, the mirror was broken. I didn't know, that I am gonna turn my mistake into a success. But that's how I met Tracy Wilkinson.
We exchanged phone numbers. And already one day later Tracy got the broken mirror fixed. She sent me a message with the invoice, how much I had to pay. Meanwhile, I left Bali for a trip to the Gili Islands. Probably Tracy thought, she will never gonna see me again ... But about two weeks later I turned up at her office to fix the damage I created.
Tracy the multi-entrepreneur
I learned from her, that she runs a business called Western Influences. And I found out, that she is a multi-entrepreneur, running some other companies as well. We found that we got much in common, with our ideas about personal development and business. That's why, we met several times for dinner, and we had a very enjoyable exchange of ideas and thoughts. She also joined my mastermind group and very soon she became one of the most active participants. For me, it was a big win to get to know her.
For heaven's sake, I smashed the mirror of her scooter! So my mistake turned into a success. Nowadays I think each time when I enter the bank: let's smash a scooter and make more friends. Because I learned from her, that
Tracy managed to turn her weakness into a strength
