    We often think that the result of everything we do should be perfect, whenever we make a mistake we take it as something that can not be corrected when in fact you can try again until you get it right. To get to where you want to be, the path is not straight instead its a bunch of twists and turns. Don’t be afraid to take risks.

    If you are not making mistakes, you aren’t learning.

    I was (and still am) one of those people who are terrified of making mistakes. A few years ago, I read somewhere that you can’t achieve success without having made mistakes along the way. Now I think of each mistakes as one step closer to getting it right.

  26. magdamarcella says:

    Thanks for this. I used to always be afraid of making mistakes, but then I read somewhere that you can’t achieve success without having made mistakes along the way – so each mistake made is one step closer to success!

  33. dontdestroyrelationship says:

    As a person who in the past had one fear (and one fear only)— the fear of failing. I have learned that “nothing beats a failure but a try.” If I should not do it right the first time, I have tomorrow to make it right. If I keep at it, I will definitely get it right, and even perfect it. Excellent Post!

  34. Aparna says:

    Yes,totally agree with what you say.Every great person has sometime in their life made grave mistakes and learnt form them.
    Once Mahatama Gandhi made a statement and contradicted the same after 3 days and when he was questioned by a reporter why he had done so ,Mahatma replied saying that he is 3 days wiser now as he had learnt from the mistakes he made.

    1. I love that!! Thank you so much for sharing that!!!

  35. rhetoricschool says:

    Yes, mistakes are neccessary for true success.
    Those who have the most success haven’t made no mistakes, they failed more than anybody else.
    I think mistakes have to be made to seperate those who just want to succeed a little bit and those who are passionate about it and give it everything they’ve got.

    1. I agree!!! Mistakes will let you know how bad you really want it!!

    Hi Jeff, totally agree we should NOT beat ourselves up when we make mistakes. We are all flawed individuals. “Perfect” is not in my vocabulary! Just doing the best I can every single day.
