How to come to terms with getting things wrong

Being wrong isn’t as terrible as people make it out to be.
Making mistakes does not end anyone’s world.
Mistakes, in fact, are an integral part of life, and are essential for our growth and advancement.

Some mistakes have graver consequences than others, that goes without saying.
But no matter the scale of the mistake, there’s always a silver lining.
Even if you can’t see it at the time.

Being wrong is a big part of the human experience.
We are where we are today because lots of people throughout history risked being wrong in their effort to come up with innovations and ideas which have transformed our lives.
Without their courage, we would probably still be living in caves.

The only way to never make any mistakes, the only way to never do anything wrong or get anything wrong, is to not do anything.
But if you want to do something, especially something of impact, you might as well come to terms with the fact that you will get things wrong.

Here’s the important thing to realise – getting things wrong does not make you weak or stupid or any less of a person.
It, in fact, points out that you are only human.
There’s really no progress without mistakes.

Mistakes can pave the way to progress.
But only if you let them.

There is no moving forward without stumbling now and then.
Our mistakes are just that, stumbles. They are momentary challenges. Ones, when overcome, lead to a better path.

Mistakes are rarely, if ever, life ending.
We can overcome them.
We can learn from them.
We can grow as a result of them.
But only if we don’t let them define us.

We can do things better, and be better, when we learn from our mistakes.
So treat mistakes as learning opportunities.
That’s really the best way to deal with them.
