Dare to make mistake

Lots of people dare not to make mistakes. They fear they would be ridiculed or blamed by others. They fear they would loose their money and belongings or be under a lot of stress. But risks are unavoidable and they do pave the way you must tread upon towards success. Have you ever heard of someone who achieves success without making any mistake before?

So it is only natural that making mistakes in your effort to reach your dreams is considered a must, and you shouldn’t worry about that as you may get a lot of advantages out of your mistakes. By making mistakes at least you then can distinguish between the correct and the incorrect portions of what you did. Anthony D’Angelo said : “In order to succeed you must fail, so that you know what to do the next time.”, and Robert Louis Stevenson even went to the extreme as to say : “Our business in life is not to succeed, but to continue to fail in good spirits.”

You needn’t worry about anything as long as you keep on going by wisely learning from your mistakes and try even better. Problems occur when you stop trying after you did some mistakes. It would only justify the criticism coming from your family or friends such as : “There, so I told you before.” or “Come on, it is surely not for you.”.

So important is this courage to exercise making mistakes or failure that one successful businessman goes as far as saying that he is so worried about his successor-to-be (that is his own son) because so far his son has never made any disturbing mistake nor failure. As Abraham Lincoln said : “Success is going from failure to failure without losing your enthusiasm.”
