A Mistake Means we are Still Going
If we don’t try, we can’t Fail
So often, we don’t attempt certain things at all. We let the fear of failing control our action. Most of the time, that fear is unwarranted because these choices are usually not life threatening. We may lose time or money if we fail, so…. never mind, let’s not try. We cannot continue to grow and better ourselves if we let that fear take over. We need to act not react. Make a choice based on making your life the way you want it to be. Don’t hide from a better life just because the road might be a bumpy one.
Mistakes Create who we Are
Everything that happens to us throughout our lives, shape the people that we become. However, the mistakes we make usually leave a big impression on us. It usually changes the way that we do things going forward. Our mistakes affect our decisions. I don’t say this as a negative but as a positive. The mistakes make us stronger. They set us up to succeed.
No One is Perfect
Success is Built on Mistakes
If you listen to a large majority of wealthy people tell their stories, half of them were living out of their cars, filing bankruptcy, losing their entire fortune after their first success. However, they didn’t give up and kept going and now they have more money than they know what to do with. This applies to everyone. We CAN succeed, after we make enough mistakes to learn what we need to. Whatever it is that we are striving for, it’s about making the mistakes to give you knowledge to succeed. I personally tried for years to get my weight under control. I seriously and truly believed that it was completely impossible for me to ever get below 170 pounds again. It was too far away, and I had tried so many times without success. I learned and kept trying anyway. Now, not only did I get under 170 but I dropped below 150 as well. I am just within reach of my goal weight of 135 pounds. What I thought was impossible has become a reality.
