If we are to change our mindset and create a different future, it’s a good idea to let go of past failures. In other words, to stop allowing the fact that we made mistakes from keeping us small – or busy – or isolated. By looking at our mistakes to see what happened we can learn to do things differently. That may well lead to better outcomes. 

The need to get it right often means that we hesitate to take action. Going forward we will all need to take action in one way or another if we are to be part of the rebuilding.  

We might stop making assumptions about other people and their role and focus on our own abilities.  

Finally, it’s a waste of time asking yourself who you are to step upWe might not be an expert, but we all have something unique to offer.
