Everyone makes mistake. It is an indispensable part of learning. One does not simply lives by not committing a mistake. As Albert Einstein said – “Anyone who has never made a mistake has never tried anything new”, one should be exultantly proud and joyful.
Nevertheless, there are many people who just won’t accept to learn from their mistakes but audacious enough to call their failures a misfortune. Some blame it on God and some obstinate to admit they are mistaken. To learn from mistakes, one has to admit one has done something wrong. Admitting a mistake requires a herculean courage as it is a sign of high self-esteem and self-confidence. Only fleeceable people defend their mistakes while wise people make a stepping stone out of their mistakes, thereby plunging a big leap towards success which even leads to innovation.
Learning from mistakes improves one’s chances to be successful. Wess Roberts says – “Anyone who doesn’t make mistakes isn’t trying hard enough”. If you’re afraid of making mistakes, you’ll be afraid of taking risks and without taking risks, one can’t achieve one’s heart’s desires.
One of the reasons many people give up on their goals instead of learning from their failures is that making mistakes or failing is considered shameful in human society. One should keep in mind that even successful people faced failure at some point of their lives, but they learned from it and that’s what makes them different from others. Learning from mistakes make them worthwhile.
It’s a person’s choice if he sees his failure as a drawback to cry on or an opportunity to learn from.
