A hero is not a person who has not make mistakes before. Great protagonists who shape our world and make it beautiful as it is today pass through mistakes but did not fall Humpty Dumpty.
Trying something and Failing is better than staying without trying. With experience comes a sense of your strengths and weaknesses. You have a good idea of how you work best and how to manage what’s on your plate so you can be successful. But your choice determine how well! It is through mistakes that we become wiser, and so you should allow yourself to make mistakes, don’t be afraid of making them, and just be afraid of not trying anything new for the fear of making mistakes, because it is in that moment where you make the biggest mistake of all: The mistake of being too afraid to live truly.
If you keep following the same, proven formula, you could end up trapped in your comfort zone. Albert Einstein said : “Insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results. Growth is uncomfortable, and challenging yourself means you may make a mistake and even fail, but you’ll also never know just what you achieve unless you push yourself. Champions never entertain that assignments will not be completed.
So, the next time you’re about to do something the way you’ve always done it consider how you might approach it differently. You don’t have to change every routine and build in inefficiencies for the sake of saying you tried something new, but do encourage yourself to take a risk because risk takers are the world changers.
You will stumble and fall a few times as you learn. I remember when I was learning how to write my name in primary one school those days and I will draw what is beyond human comprehension been mistake. And some of my school mate then who have learnt how to write theirs will laugh at me because there are some people in this life who are delighted in making jest of others. Even some will still mock you without them knowing how. If you are not strong minded to achieve success, or your enviable future, people will laugh or mock you out of achieving your goal. But, the permission to make mistakes fades away as you gain more experience. You move into the category where you’re supposed to “know better.” And while yes, getting it right is always a good goal. As humans, we’re bound to make mistakes. And while trying to avoid them is a good goal, a better one is to stop viewing all mistakes as a complete failure, and vow to learn from them instead. Thomas Edison never calls it a mistake, but he said, I have success knowing many ways that did not work!
It seems sometimes that we have so many opportunities to mess up in life, many hate mistakes. There is no record that keeps mistakes. Many who would have being celebrated as champion that fall into mistake remain unrecognised. But mistake is what provoke growth. No solid growth can happen without mistake that is why I always say that doing something and fail is better than staying with without trying.
Needless to say, sales were poor for a car that wouldn’t go.
When Coca-Cola was introduced in China, their attempts at finding a phonetic equivalent in the Chinese language resulted in a drink called “bite the wax tadpole.”
Pepsi didn’t do too well either with their Chinese advertising.
Their “Come alive with the Pepsi generation” slogan translated into Pepsi brings your ancestors back from the grave.
The point is We All Make Mistakes. Some of them are more public than others. We may try to deny it. We may even call it something other than a mistake.
- If a driver makes a mistake, it’s an acciden
- If a teacher makes a mistake, it’s a new theory
- If a barber makes a mistake, it’s a new hair style
But when we try to deny our mistake; that is when the trouble really begins.
I want to do what is good, but I don’t. I don’t want to do what is wrong, but I do it anyway.
We all struggle like that.
• Even when he knew what was good and right,
• Apostle Paul still made mistakes and choose to do the wrong things.
• His only salvation from such a dreadful cycle was Christ and the same is true for us.
• So when we make mistakes, we need to understand that we are in good company
What we need to do Learn from our Mistakes
• If you’re a surgeon or a pilot, you might want to try not to make mistakes.
• But if what you do isn’t a matter of life and death even if you think it is
• I find that mistakes can be some of the most important things that can happen to us.
• Rather than fearing mistakes, we should try to learn from them.
• Because “Mistakes are the portals of discovery.”
So if you want to put a positive spin on it.
