Excerpt from The Medicine Warrior Workshop Ebook by Mother Crooked Arrow:

This sacred Medicine Warrior Path is not an easy road to walk. One begins this sacred
commitment by being completely honest with oneself. The warrior does this through self
examination. The true Medicine Warrior Way is a journey filled with a continual awakening
of spirit to its highest achievements. It is the path of balance and uniformity. It is a road where
one learns that spirit is one’s true purpose. That the mind is the builder of one’s life, while the
body is the facilitator of what the mind and the spirit have manifested in the physical. We are
truly body, mind and spirit. The Medicine Warrior Way is one of continual protection of
children, our elders, animals, plants, the earth and the sacred old ways.

How to learn from your mistakes

By Scott Berkun

Power lines You can only learn from a mistake after you admit you’ve made it. As soon as you start blaming other people (or the universe itself) you distance yourself from any possible lesson. But if you courageously stand up and honestly say “This is my mistake and I am responsible” the possibilities for learning will move towards you. Admission of a mistake, even if only privately to yourself, makes learning possible by moving the focus away from blame assignment and towards understanding. Wise people admit their mistakes easily. They know progress accelerates when they do.

For anyone than never discovers a deeper self-identity, based not on lack of mistakes but on courage, compassionate intelligence, commitment and creativity, life is a scary place made safe only by never getting into trouble, never breaking rules and never taking the risks that their hearts tell them they need to take.

Learning from mistakes requires three things:

1. Putting yourself in situations where you can make interesting mistakes
2. Having the self-confidence to admit to them
3. Being courageous about making changes

This essay will cover all three. First we have to classify the different kinds of mistakes.
The four kinds of mistakes

One way to categorize mistakes is into these categories:

* Stupid: Absurdly dumb things that just happen. Stubbing your toe, dropping your pizza on your neighbor’s fat cat or poking yourself in the eye with a banana.

* Simple: Mistakes that are avoidable but your sequence of decisions made inevitable. Having the power go out in the middle of your party because you forgot to pay the rent, or running out of beer at said party because you didn’t anticipate the number of guests.

* Involved: Mistakes that are understood but require effort to prevent. Regularly arriving late to work/friends, eating fast food for lunch every day, or going bankrupt at your start-up company because of your complete ignorance of basic accounting.

* Complex: Mistakes that have complicated causes and no obvious way to avoid next time. Examples include making tough decisions that have bad results, relationships that fail, or other unpleasant or unsatisfying outcomes to important things.

For anyone that never discovers a deeper self-identity, based not on lack of mistakes but on courage, compassionate intelligence, commitment and creativity, life is a scary place made safe only by never getting into trouble, never breaking rules and never taking the risks that their hearts tell them they need to take.

Learning from mistakes requires three things:

1. Putting yourself in situations where you can make interesting mistakes
2. Having the self-confidence to admit to them
3. Being courageous about making changes

After reading the information above just to give you some ideas on how to answer the next question:

1. Mistakes of the past are to be used as learning tools in order to improve our life and learn from them so we can grow and evolve. Today I chose to learn from my mistakes of the past and………….
