Make Mistakes

March 24, 2009

One thing that I have come to learn is that mistakes are a good thing. You need to make mistakes in order to learn from them.

Think about it, how many times has someone told you not to do something, you ignored them, did it anyways and realized they were right all along?  It’s possible for someone to take that advice without committing the same mistake, but it’s not likely. I’ve come to the conclusion that it’s perfectly alright for people to make mistakes and make them often, as long as they are not making the same repetitive ones. Those are the people who have no business breathing the same air as you and me.

No one ever comes up with a brilliant idea right off the bat. Every person you see who is successful has probably had more failure along the way than their successes. This idea was brought to light by a blog entry by Mark Cuban on his own success story. Many who seem as if “luck” is on their side is actually blessed by their determination and hard work. You don’t ace an exam by not doing your homework.

So citizens of the world, children of capitalism, make mistakes and make them often but never repeat them. You’ll be a stronger person in the end.
