By seeking and blundering we learn.
Many times what we perceive as an error or failure is actually a gift. And eventually we find that lessons learned from that discouraging experience prove to be of great worth. Fools say that they learn by experience. I prefer to profit by others experience. Great losses are great lessons. A teachable spirit and a humbleness to admit your ignorance or your mistake will save you a lot of pain. However, if you’re a person who knows it all, then you’ve got a lot of heavy hearted experiences coming your way. Criticsim is part of learning and growth. It means that you are taking initiatives to learn something new and grow over from your current state. If you are not getting criticised, it means you are not taking enough risk to learn something new and to grow. Nothing is ever wrong if you learn out of it and nothing is right if it makes you arrogant. It takes the lessons to learn and grow. It takes the growth to pass the tests. You can learn a lot from your mistakes when you aren’t busy denying them.
Mistakes have the power to turn you into something better than you were before. If you learned a lesson from a failure, you lessen the loss from a failure. We are products of our past, but we don’t have to be prisoners of it. One thing is for sure you will make mistakes. Learn to learn from them. Learn to forgive yourself. Learn to laugh when everything falls apart because, sometimes, it will. When you realize your life isn’t heading in the direction you wish, rather than wasting time complaining about the situation, just focus on the direction you wish to proceed with determination. I gained my wings when I believed they were there all along. It wasn’t in the fixing or the healing of my personality that I recognized my worth it was when I opened to the truth that I am whole right now, exactly as I am. Flaws, mistakes, fears. The worst thing that can happen to you today is “nothing” because anything else, either good or bad, can help you learn to live life to the fullest. Smart people do stupid things. Stupid people don’t learn from them.
Always take failure as an opinion; never as an option. There is more than one road to spiritual salvation. We discover a philosophical way of living by encountering the world, culling knowledge from all available resources, and thinking reverently about life. A mistake is an experience, choice or concept it is necessary for us to have or make in order to evolve beyond it. Errors can be and are the launchpad of great ideas. The hardest lesson are the ones that from ourselves we don’t learn.The everlasting ones are those we are not able to forget. Look, the easiest thing in the world is to cut and run. From anything, not just relationships. It neatly avoids taking responsibility for things, learning lessons that have to be learned at some point, reinforces blame, and, in my case at least, ensured I would simply repeat the same shit with someone else.With every defeat there is an opportunity to learn.
Mistakes and slips are a necessary evil part of our daily living. We learn through them all the time. Life is too broad for us to do everything so perfectly, but we must not justify our mistakes and slips when we know that we are far better than our mistakes! The best regret is to take a robust action in the right direction to prove how far better we are than our mistakes and slips. What ultimately got me through was my single minded determination, voiced aloud to myself and recorded in my diary, to discover the causes of my blindness and never to repeat them. Fearlessly pursuing insight was my badge of honor, my route back to self respect. We are often let down by the most trusted people and loved by the most unexpected ones. Some make us cry for things that we haven’t done, while others ignore our faults and just see our smile. Some leave us when we need them the most, while some stay with us even when ask them to leave. The world is a mixture of people. We just need to know which hand to shake and which hand to hold! After all that’s life, learning to hold on and learning to let go.
Every person fails, nobody achieves everything that he or she set out to achieve. Nobody, regardless of how many personal triumphs they enjoy, no matter how rich or powerful they become, goes through life without encountering failure. You cannot fail unless a person valiantly tries to accomplish a task. The most audacious person readily attempts difficult projects, despite feeling uncertain if they can prevail. Successful people exhibit the character to respond positively to failure. Some failures prove instrumental in altering a person’s outlook, and their revised perspective leads to brilliant successes. We can learn personal humility from episodes that generate shame and guilt. After retiring from worldly affairs and drawing useful lessons from personal disgrace, we must resume living an expedient life devoted to appreciating truth, beauty, and love. A man’s weakest spots are almost always closest to his passions.
For every choice you make, there is a consequence to face. Choose wisely!
