Making Mistakes: A Part of Human Existence!

“The greatest mistake you can make in life is to be continually fearing you will make one.”  – Elbert Hubbard  

We all make mistakes and it’s a natural phenomenon in humans. Life is a learning curve and in human existence, growth is inevitable. Therefore, making mistakes and learning from such experience is all part of growing.

According to the Dictionary, a mistake is an act or judgement that is misguided or wrong. A “mistake” is an experience that reveals a lack of knowledge or error in judgement and that should inspire you to acquire the knowledge of that subject in other to avoid the repetition of that mistake.

The acquisition of that knowledge is the process of mental and sometimes physical growth.

Self-deprecation over your mistakes is the wrong step to correcting your mistakes. The right attitude when you realize that you have made a mistake is to focus your energy on improving yourself through studying the problem and learning from your mistake. Thus, improving your skills.

Mistakes are like poison to the mind.  You can change the word to challenges if it makes you feel better. That is what I call mistakes having made tons of them in the past. Well, it does make me feel a lot better to see them as challenges.

When we make mistakes, we learn new things and the many mistakes we make, equip us with new knowledge. We grow more in wisdom and experience. Therefore, our horizons become expanded and we are more equipped mentally to deal with challenges as they occur.

Most of these challenges open up new hopes and possibilities in our lives.

Making mistakes is part of being human. Embrace it, learn from it, forgive yourself and move on.

Peace and Love!
