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!

Why Are You Afraid To Try Something New?

“Risk! Risk anything! care no more for the opinions of others, for those voices. Do the hardest thing on earth for you. Act for yourself. Face the truth.”

Katherine Mansfield

Don’t be afraid to try. Whatever it is that you want to do, don’t be afraid to try. If you don’t try, you won’t know how far you can go. Lots of people fail in life not because they cannot succeed or they are not smart enough, but because they are afraid to try.

“Don’t be afraid to try.”

If you want to excel in life, if you want to succeed, you must try. You must do the things you fear. You must embrace fear to move forward. Go for what you want and you will get it. Face the things that scare you, you will be free. It can be done if you believe it can be done.

“Act for yourself. Face the truth.”

Katherine Mansfield

Don’t listen to people. They will discourage you. If you really mean business, listen to yourself. Remember this: “When people tell you that something can’t be done, it means it can be done.” Just go ahead and make it happen.
