Are you depressed because of the mistakes you have made in the past.I want you to know that you can’t seize your future while you’re obsessing over your past.Nobody starts out being good at everything.Tackling new ventures usually means learning by trial and error.It is not wrong to make a mistake in life.When you run away from mistakes you are simply making a mistake.Mistake is the path-way to perfection and is a way of living.Mistakes happen! Not only do they happen,they are quaranteed to happen. The only way you won’t make mistakes is if you don’t do anything and that itself is a mistake.Too many people are afraid to try something new because they feel they might make mistakes.They are both right and wrong.Yes,they will probably make mistakes but it is good to understand that errors are the raw materials for heroes.You never accomplish great or worth while things without risk and risk generally means great mistake potential.
To turn your mistakes to your advantage
1)Admit your mistakes.Why don’t we?
a)Pride:we’ve an image to uphold.
b)Insecurity:ourself-worth is based on our performance.
c)Stubborness:we’d rather flog a dead horse than bury it.
2)Accept mistakes as the price of progress.Learn to view failure as a healthy,inevitable part of succeeding.Nothing is perfect in life.
3)Insist on learning from your mistakes.when you try to avoid failure at all cost.You never learn and you end up repeating the same mistakes.
The way to avoid mistakes is experience.The way to get experience is by mistakes.Don;t feel bad because you messed up with something in your past.All great people did.While one person hesitates because he feels inferior another is busy making mistakes and becoming superior.(Henry C.Link).
