Making mistakes is part of being human and instead of being hard on yourself you should see each mistake as an opportunity for growth.
It’s OK to make mistakes. Everybody does, although no one admits it. I have made enough and seen enough to know that it is a regular occurrence for everyone, and it is nothing to be embarrassed or ashamed about.
Actually, it is vital to make mistakes. There is no better way to learn. When you go wrong, your brain reacts, and creates solutions. In this process, you learn. You learn what went wrong, why it went wrong, and how to solve it when it goes wrong. And that, is the reason your future work will contain less mistakes, and improve in quality. As long as you take away lessons from your mistakes, make as many as you need to.
Try not to repeat your mistakes – Every mistake holds a lesson to learn. But one thing is essential; you should avoid making the same mistake over and over again. Because in that case, you’re not evolving or learning anything new. Every time you face a situation similar to one from your past, one in which you made a mistake, it’s advisable to look within and ask yourself:
When Thomas Edison let the world know how he had created the high resistance light bulb, after many trials and errors, he said: “It was not a thousand unsuccessful attempts. It was an invention with a thousand steps.” What the words of Edison teach us is very significant: we can fall many many times, and make many mistakes, but the important thing is to always learn from them. Between the years 1878 and 1880, Edison worked on at least 300 theories in order to develop an efficient incandescent light bulb. This shows the importance of perseverance and having the willpower to not give up. As well as the will to get back up after stumbling and falling down.
Making mistakes is human, but every mistake should teach us how to get back up and learn from what happened. It’s of no use to lament or look for explanations from other people, when the only effective thing to do is to reflect and learn your lesson. From a young age we’re taught that the best people are the ones who don’t mess up. Grown ups hide the fact that in order to reach the level of performance they have now, they had to make countless mistakes along the way. One after another, over and over again.
Certain people are not capable of admitting their mistakes. They are so demanding of themselves and others that any mistake is seen as a failure and a defeat. Perfectionism can be a virtue to a certain extent, especially in more important tasks. But it can be harmful if every single identification of a mistake leads to a huge internal struggle.
The next time you feel like you have messed up, remember these 4 reasons why it’s okay to make mistakes:
1. You can learn from your mistakes – In every mistake we make there is an opportunity to learn something new. Practicing is a part of learning any new skill and not getting it right the first time is all part of that learning process.
2. You can try again – The greatest advantage of making a mistake is the opportunity to fix it. If you hurt someone, you can apologize and make amends. If you failed an exam, it does not mean your career is over, you can try to do better the next time. If you make the same mistake next time apply what you learned the first time you made the mistake. (Don’t worry; most of us have made the same mistake more than once!)
3. Growth – Mistakes are essential for growth and enable us to understand ourselves better. From each mistake, we can learn and make better choices.
4. Mistakes create compassion – Next time a friend or family member makes a mistake, you’re much more likely to be kinder and understand as a result of your experiences.
• Mistakes do not dictate your life
• You are not your mistakes
• Everyone makes mistakes
• They are inevitable
Mistakes are a normal part of life, they help shape who we are and make us better!
