Make Room for Mistakes
July 30, 2007
Celebrate your mistakes. At first, this might sound a little crazy. Who wants to make mistakes? But mistakes can be the most powerful teachers you will ever have. Success can be more gratifying, but it is often the failures that show you the need for new values and behaviors that will make the greatest difference in your life.
Mistakes help you learn what works and what doesn’t work. Children will keep falling and getting up until they finally learn to walk. They are not afraid of falling, because their mistakes are part of the process. Make room in your life for mistakes.
The man who makes no mistakes does not usually make anything. – Edward John Phelps –
