Admit When You're Wrong

Politicians would likely become more trusted if—at least once in awhile—they admitted they were wrong. Voters don't expect perfection, but they do appreciate candid truthfulness.

Even if you're not a politician, be willing to be wrong. Own up to your mistakes. There's nothing wrong in making a mistake. But it's stupid not to acknowledge it or even worse to repeat it. Too many people see the admission of mistakes as a sign of weakness rather than strength.

Action Point: If you share your blunders, others will have more empathy for you and cut you more slack than you'd think. In doing so, you lessen the chance of repeating it yourself and may even help them to avoid the same mistake.
