If you are not making mistakes in your life, it is time to check what you are doing. If you want to grow, you must be comfortable with mistakes. Yes, mistakes. That is how we grow. That is how we learn.

People don’t grow because they don’t want to make mistakes. If you are one of them, it is time to stop thinking like that. Ask yourself: Why am I afraid of mistakes?

Nobody wants to hear anything about mistakes. But, look, if we don’t make mistakes, if we are afraid of making mistakes, how can we learn new things? Impossible.

“It is not our mistakes that define who we are; it is how we recover from those mistakes.”

Bo Bennett

The only way forward is through mistakes. If you want to grow, embrace the art of making mistakes. Don’t let your mistakes define the real you, let your mistakes be your way forward. Don’t let it stop you from doing what you were created to do.

“You are not your mistakes. You are you.”

Don’t let your mistakes turn you into a different human being. You are who you are. You are not your mistakes. Your mistakes are not you. You make mistakes, mistakes don’t make you. Why worry?

Instead of worrying about your mistakes, use them to create a better you. As I said before, you are not your mistakes. You are you. You are a learner. Stop thinking about it!
