You are not your mistakes. And your mistakes are not you. If you want to grow your life, you can’t avoid making mistakes.

“The root of your growth is in your mistake.”

Your life is not about making mistakes. It is about learning from your mistakes. Your mistakes mean nothing. It is what you do with your mistakes, it is what you take away from them, it what you do with your mistakes, that really matters.

If you don’t learn anything from your mistakes, you are planning to fail. In life, to achieve greatness, you must discipline yourself to learn from your mistakes. Don’t just make mistakes. To make them work for you, you must learn from them.

Just because you have messed up doesn’t mean you are stupid. It means you are experimenting. It means you are trying to improve your life. It means you are no longer comfortable with the status quo. It means you are challenging yourself. It means you are becoming the real you. That is how we learn.

We learn by making mistakes. Every mistake you make brings you closer to your real life. The root of your growth is in your mistake. So if you want to grow your life, don’t be scared to make mistakes.
