Making the most of mistakes (I)

One thing many people want to avoid is mistakes. Most of us want to avoid failing or dabbling into error because mistakes, errors and failure come with a heavy price. Mistakes can be costly. Mistakes are painful. Mistakes bring regret and guilt. Nobody likes to face embarrassment or be embarrassed and mistakes seem to be an open door to embarrassment so why make mistakes.

“Everyone hates to fail. We assume, rationally or not, that we’ll suffer embarrassment and a loss of esteem and stature. And nowhere is the fear of failure more intense and debilitating than in the competitive world of business, where a mistake can mean losing a bonus, a promotion, or even a job.” Richard Farson and Ralph Keyes

Much as we might want to avoid mistakes we will at one point or the other make mistakes. Making mistakes is inevitable and unavoidable in life.

Mistakes are common to man.

“No human ever became interesting by not failing. The more you fail and recover and improve, the better you are as a person. Ever met someone who’s always had everything work out for them with zero struggle? They usually have the depth of a puddle. Or they don’t exist.” Chris Hardwick

As long as we are in the flesh we are bound to make mistakes.

“We are human. We are not perfect. We are alive. We try things. We make mistakes. We stumble. We rise again. We try again. We keep learning. We keep growing. And we are thankful for this priceless opportunity called life.” Unknown

The person who will not make any mistake will not achieve anything.

“Anyone who has never made a mistake has never tried anything new.” Albert Einstein

“Success is stumbling from failure to failure with no loss of enthusiasm.” – Winston Churchill

Many times, the bigger the project, the bigger the mistakes that are likely to be made. We live in a world where mistakes, errors and inadequacies are prone but we are not our mistakes.

“We all make mistakes, have struggles, and even regret things in our past. But you are not your mistakes, you are not your struggles, and you are here NOW with the power to shape your day and your future.” – Steve Maraboli

We must, therefore, not be afraid to make mistakes but learn to make the most of them. Mistakes, errors and failure are part of life and they need not incapacitate us.

“Mistakes are inevitable. The comeback is more important than the setback.” Unknown
