It is better to make mistakes and learn from them than to remain unproductive for life. Are you afraid of making one? If you are afraid of making a single mistake, then you are afraid of moving forward in your life.
If you don’t want to make a mistake, you are not ready to grow. When you make a mistake, it is not the end of your life. It is the beginning of a new life.
The only way to move forward is to be comfortable with making mistakes. Remember that it is not how you make your mistakes, but how you correct them that reveals your true character.
When you make a mistake, always ask yourself, “What can I learn from it?” Because when you learn from your mistakes, you won’t regret making them. But when you don’t learn from your mistakes, you will continue to worry about them. It hurts!
“Where you are going is more important than where you are coming from.”
Here are 3 reasons why you shouldn’t worry about your mistakes:
You have another chance to fix it. In the words of Mary Pickford, “If you have made mistakes, even serious ones, there is always another chance for you.”
There is always a fresh start any time. Don’t let your mistakes ruin your life. Think about what you are going to take away from it. Mary Pickford said, “You may have a fresh start any moment you choose, for this thing that we call ‘failure’ is not the falling down, but the staying down.”
You cannot change the past. Why are worrying yourself about what you can’t change? Instead of doing that, why not focus your energy on building your future? Where you are going is more important than where you are coming from. Now is the time to focus on building a better future for yourself. If you focus on your mistakes, you will miss the future. Mary Pickford said, “The past cannot be changed. The future is yet in your power.” What are you going to do with it?
