2. Remember it's okay to make a mistake sometimes. Believe in your ability to manage the outcome.

First of all-- just a reminder that no one is perfect! While there are certainly major blunders that should be carefully avoided, we all make some mistakes some time; there is no moving forward without them.
Now that you've accepted this, think about the last mistake you made. Were you able to find a remedy? Yes? Have you been able to find remedies to issues in the past? Well, then, you've got some experience, and on top of that, you learn something new every day!
Have confidence in your ability to find a solution, just like you have many times before.
3. Pivot away from negative thoughts and scenes.
Do you linger in negativity longer than is necessary?
By all means, do give yourself time to process and experience your feelings, but also allow yourself some space from them when they become overwhelming. It's much harder to come up from the mire if you've let yourself sink too low.
I used to consider this action of pivoting to be a form of running away from problems, but now I realize the necessity for a change of focus during these nerve-wracking moments. As long as you do eventually revisit and resolve the issue, pivoting toward positivity can give your mind a much- needed break. A refresh can also help you to see the issue more clearly and possibly even foster a solution.

4. No need to be so rigid!
It can be difficult to notice just how often you are being overly rigid with your thoughts. Establishing routines and boundaries can provide beneficial guidelines, but becoming stuck in a cycle or being just plain stubborn can have its downfalls.
Staying trapped in one mindset can also trick you into placing unnecessary restrictions on your life or others' lives. Rather than helping, thinking too rigidly can keep you from trying creative solutions or acknowledging the merit of fresh perspectives.
