As George Bernard Shaw writes, “A life spent making mistakes is not only more honorable, but more useful than a life spent doing nothing”.
Mistakes are something everybody makes and no man no matter how virtuous, principled or great he might seem, could cross the journey in this planet without making mistakes.
Life teaches everyone that mistakes can be expensive in your life and no man can ever travel on this planet without a learning experience of making mistakes. No matter what people label for having done so and so blunder, it is definitely a blessing in disguise provided we are cautious enough not to make that mistake again. It’s only through mistakes we gain wisdom, we mature and learn to take the right steps in the future coming years thus avoid such mistakes again. So, committing mistakes implies progress and growth.
A good example of a great personality who had done 9,999 mistakes in his life before inventing the electric bulb is Thomas Alva Edison. Had he feared to make mistakes, he would have settled for a mediocre life and seldom have invented the electric bulb and thus we still might have had to go on in or life with oil lamps at night. Thomas Alva Edison was wise enough each time not to repeat the same mistake again and so went on rectifying his thinking thus finally when he invented the Electric Bulb.
So, guys don’t worry about what people might think about but go ahead and discover your destiny and pursue your life focused on your goals by learning from your mistakes.
I think you would agree with me that we all have made a fair share of committing mistakes ourselves and need to take the blame for it. Though most of the mistakes might have been with the desire to please your superiors, relatives or parents or for have unwisely agreed to their decision. The other mistakes could have been made by you for being naïve, innocent and immature.
Now, the greatest lesson is to learn from the mistakes and never ever repeat. This attitude of rectifying our mental attitude and looking life in a matured way will enhance the quality of our life. We should also be grateful for getting wiser each passing day compared to others who claim to have made much fewer mistakes than you.
I finally state that mistakes are important and we must learn a lesson from each of the mistakes by ensuring that we do not repeat it again. Moreover, mistakes must be treated as a blessing in disguise just as adversities in life come as blessing in disguise for all of us.
