“Anyone who has never made a mistake has never tried anything new.”
– Albert Einstein
Have you ever made a mistake but it turned out to be the best thing that has ever happened to you? I don’t know about you but I definitely have. I’m a firm believer that mistakes are experiences that life throws us to learn something and help us grow.
“To err is human” as Alexander Pope said. I constantly make mistakes. Sometimes they’re trivial and harmless, like taking a wrong turn or dating a guy YOU KNOW IN YOUR HEART is just NO GOOD for you! Sometimes they’re bigger mistakes that leave an indelible mark on us forever & sometimes they’re exactly what we should be doing.
My point is that we give mistakes more power than they’re worth. Since we were children we’ve been making mistakes. We’ve been doing the wrong thing, tripping over the same stone over and over again to get to where we’re going. You will always make mistakes. Life is not about NEVER making a mistake, it’s about learning from it. So that you can move forward, develop yourself and become the person you were meant to be. You will learn so much more from a mistake or a failure then you ever will from success or complacence.
So don’t be afraid to make a mistake, be more afraid to NOT make one. That means that you’re letting you fear take control over your life and keep you right where you are… in that little comfort zone I’ve talked so much about.
Trust yourself, trust the universe, that everything will work out the way it’s supposed to.
Good luck! =)
