So how do we learn from our mistakes? Firstly, we have to accept that we make mistakes and that we’ll make future mistakes.
Our depth and wisdom is a direct consequence of our past mistakes and our learnings. Without mistakes there is no learning and without learning there will be no progress.
Without mistakes there is no learning and without learning there will be no progress.
Often we’ve been knocked to the ground, suffered deeply, had our hearts broken, experienced great disappointment or simply just not arrived at where we wanted to be. But, hellooooo, it’s precisely those mistakes, failings, and events, that we hadn’t planned for, those mistakes or failings which we had never anticipated, which created the person we are today!
Flexibility is important. If we expect that life’s experiences and events should conform strictly to plan we are setting ourselves up for hardships.
Having short-term as well as long-term goals that are flexible enables us to go with the flow and roll with the punches so we may recover quickly with “wow!! what did I learn from that?” This attitude allows us to move towards evolution and the next non-scripted life event. Remember, an attitude of learning keeps us in good stead with life.
Now that we’ve got that out of the way, let’s move ahead and look towards a future where mistakes or misfortunes are seen for what they are – learnings. Living with this attitude frees us up for a joyful life!
I Love You
