There Are No Mistakes

So easy to beat yourself up over mistakes you’ve made. So many amongst us live in the past rather than loving the present and building a brilliant future. Some people stay stuck for years over something they did or a failure they’ve experienced. Sad. A life is a terrible thing to waste.

But let me ask you a question: “is there really such a thing as a mistake?” First of all, no one tries to fail or mess things up. Every one of us wakes up in the morning, walks out into the world and does the best we can do based on what we know and the skills we have. But even more importantly, every so-called “mistake” is actually a rich source of learning. An opportunity to build more awareness and understanding and gain precious experience. Experience that will help us do, feel and be even better. So, just maybe, there are no mistakes. Just maybe what we could call failures are actually growth lessons in wolf’s clothing. And just maybe the person who experiences the most wins.

    usually we are so worried about mistakes done and living with that conscience long-lasting. we have no perspective for worries, only perspective we have by taking advice from them.

    I’m not sure I agree that there are no mistakes. I have, no doubt, that I have made a mistake. But I concur, that I have learned and grown from it. Feeling better from it? Not yet. Nevertheless, I’ve learned a hard lesson. Good judgment comes from experience and experience comes from bad judgment.

    Dear Robin, Your words are really very short, crisp n wise!!

    We all make mistakes. But we should learn some lesson from them and move on otherwise going on making the same mistakes is not a wise thing to do.

    Edison failed approximately ten thousand times before he invented the light bulb but didn’t give up. All the mistakes added to his rich experience and he became a great scientist.

    Excellent thought. I also experience one more on this line. A mistake is always unique. never repeated. So we are bound to learn new lessons from new mistakes, and nothing is possible without a fair price. The fair price for life is Little mistakes here and there. Robin, You are doing wonders in my mental growth. Thanks

    but what if we already know that what we’re doing is a huge mistake,what about that?? how can we stop beeing addicted to lessons, and what about consequences we’re gona have 2deal with afterwards…
    it would be better for me 2agree with you, but i would be lying to myself…well i cant live in denial, if u can good 4u,cz in order to get over a mistake and make it right we gonna have to admit zat it’s already there… denying its presence will make it impossible to learn anything

    Wow! I came across your site a few days ago and I am addicted. You keep ideas short, clear, and uplifting. I have made mistakes in the past and will probably make a few more. I will look at them differently now because of you. Time to forgive, learn and move on. It’s what I would want my child to do. Thank you for reminding me I need to do that too.

    Just like there are no good or bad experiences, only lessons to be learnt, mistakes are just a way to learn and move ahead in life…
