Steve Harvey's Miss Universe Mistake

What We Can Learn From Steve Harvey’s Miss Universe Mistake

I am sure we will talk about Steve Harvey’s Miss Universe Mistake for months and years to come.

As host of the Miss Universe 2015 pageant, Steve Harvey announced Miss Colombia was the winner…. but then he realized he had made a huge mistake, and she was actually the 1st runner-up. It was Miss Philippines who was the real winner. oops!!

We can hate Steve for making a mistake or we can commend him for owning his mistake. However, there are few things we all can learn from this.

1 – Mistake do happen

We are humans. We all make mistakes and sometimes in public on a big stage.

When you do something that you have never done before, there is always a risk of failure or mistake.

2 – Own your mistakes

After realizing that he made the wrong announcement, Harvey slowly took to the stage and said,

“I have to apologize. The first runner-up is Colombia. Miss Universe 2015 is Philippines,” (Harvey)

Sometimes, when we fail, we want to hide and not face the world. But owning our mistakes will make us more powerful.

3 – Finger pointing is an option but..

it does not solve anything. How many times have we seen leaders make a mistake and then point fingers?

or when we can’t get results from social media, it’s all Facebook’s fault. They changed the newsfeed algorithms and now organic reach is on its all time low. Right? Maybe we need to add more value to our fans or focus on giving before asking.

Steve could have easily pointed fingers on teleprompter or someone else but, this is what he said

This is exactly what’s on the card. I take responsibility for this. It was my mistake. It was on the card. Horrible mistake. I can show it to you right here. The first runner-up is Colombia. It was my mistake. Please don’t hold it against the ladies. (Steve Harvey)

4 – Move on

Dwelling on the past and mistakes is another option but what’s the use? It’s important to remember that we are humans and mistakes will happen. The key is to take immediate responsibility and apologize. Also, be authentic in your apology. Your fans and potential customers will respect you for being human.

Make mistakes, own them, learn and then move on…

Now over to you. If you were in Steve’s shoes, what would you have done?евгений попович харьковов женапосуда 76интернет магазин запорожьечистящее средствоreal estate southern floridaтест пинга
