“Failure is just another word for growing and it’s only failure if you don’t get back up,” said Suzi LeVine, the United States Ambassador to Switzerland and Liechtenstein at the TEDx Talks.
The most important lessons in life are coming from the worst decisions you make. Time and experience are the best teachers that could teach you with the proofs. As people make mistakes every single day, from a scratch worth of error to a marvelous ones, there is no way for you to turn back time and undo everything, all you can do about it is swallow them up and learn from them. Hence, instead of avoiding making mistakes, here are the reasons why you need to learn from your mistakes.
-Good judgment comes from experience which comes from poor decision
We all make bad decisions from time to time, there will always be the consequences that you have to take. Through all the consequences that is served on the table for you—you will subconsciously make a better judgment because you do not want to repeat the same cycle.
-Mistakes makes you try something new
You are always one decision away from a totally different life. Through mistakes, you will get to experience things that you wouldn’t have if you didn’t fail.
-Do not put your mistakes behind your back, instead stick them close to your heart
Everyone makes mistakes and it’s totally normal, but as soon as you realize you’re making a mess, you have to observe what you did wrong and took it as an error free trial, and get better at the real game.
-Mistakes reinstall your motivation
Everybody wants a successful life, but it requires improvement. Through mistakes, you know how to start your game to be more creative and more eager for the bigger picture, hence it will slap you with another motivation to keep moving forward.
