Mistakes are valuable if you do four things with it: recognize it, admit it, learn from it, and forget it.”- John Wooden

If you want to be a happy person, stop thinking about your past mistakes. It is okay to make mistakes. People who have made it in life have made significant mistakes. They are not afraid to tell you about their mistakes. They are proud of them. Let us be honest here. If you really want to do what you want to do in your life, you must learn to be VERY comfortable with mistakes.

If you are not making mistakes, you are not trying enough. You are not risking enough to make it in life. You are not risking enough to move out of your comfort zone. It is not your comfort zone; it is your dream-killing zone.

In your comfort zone, you are comfortable, but you are not growing. If you want to make yourself happy, you must get yourself in the game of life. You must learn how to take risks. If not, you are only wasting your precious time. Don’t waste your time. As the old saying goes, “If you waste your time, you waste your life.” Don’t let that happen to you!

People don’t want to make mistakes. As a result, they don’t try anything. My question for you is, “If you don’t try something new, something exciting and educative, something challenging, how do you expect to grow?” If you think you can grow without work, if you think you can grow without taking calculated risks, if you think you can grow without leaving your comfort zone, you are just kidding yourself!

When you make a mistake, be happy. It is the ONLY way forward. If you want to move forward, you must separate yourself from your past mistakes. Can you do that for yourself?

You are here to express yourself, not to suppress yourself. Life is about expressing it. If you are not expressing your life, if you are not living your life to the fullest, it means you are suppressing your life.

Are you expressing yourself? If not, why not?

To do that, to express yourself, to live your life, to do your things, to take charge of your life, according to Shunryu Suzuki, “It is a big mistake to think that the best way to express yourself is to do whatever you want, acting as you please. This is not expressing yourself. If you know what to do exactly, and you do it, then you can express yourself fully.”

You can’t live your life if you don’t know how to play your own game. As the old saying goes, “Life is a game.” If you want to win the game of life, you must know how to play it. You must know when to rest. Because in the game of life, resting is important. If you don’t rest, you will lose your game.

Success starts with knowing what you want. You can only pursue what you know. You can’t win the race of life if you don’t know what you are chasing. To win, to win big, you must know what you want, what to do, how to do it, and when to rest. Go for it!
