Lessons on Being Wrong

It is next to impossible to find a person who never did any mistakes in his/her life. That’s why the ability to learn from your mistakes is irreplaceable. Many people who want to succeed, but are afraid of making mistakes that there are some people who learn from their mistakes and move forwards towards their success. If you have not committed any mistakes during your work then you must not have done it correctly. Do not be overwhelmed by feelings of guilt and regret, but analyze how you can learn from the mistakes.


1- Forgiving yourself

Your inability to forgive yourself and others creates a path to spiritual and intellectual growth. That’s why you should forgive yourself for your mistakes and look at it only as an opportunity to develop yourself as an individual and succeed.

2- You cannot be perfect all the time

If you live with a constant fear of making a mistake, then you will spend most of your life doing absolutely nothing. There is nothing wrong in making mistakes; it is an integral part of moving forward. The more responsibility you take on yourself, the more likely you are to make mistakes.

If you want everything to be perfect then it will be a psychological barrier to taking risks.

3- Don’t justify your mistakes

It is human’s natural instinct to explain our mistakes. We explain our mistakes in ego; we don’t want others to think that you really made a mistake. Be honest and accept that it was a wrong move. It is a good habit to accept the truth, it helps in self-development, and after accepting the mistake you won’t feel shame or embarrassment anymore.

4- See your chances

Sometimes it happens that we are so busy in doing other work that we ignore what can really make you happy and successful. And there was another option when you lost your business, but you just ignored it. However, this can only be understood after many years that you had the option but you did not go for it.

5- Believe in yourself

Never give up on yourself is the key lesson. You can always start with the new thing if you did not succeed in one thing.  Take the example of Thomas Edison, he failed so many times but he never stopped trying. He knew that he can do it. He believed that unlucky people do not exist. We just have to try and never stop moving forward.

Recognize your mistake and learn something good from it. Never repeat the same mistake again. It is important to know why it happened? What you did wrong? Determine that step and replace it with something new and more advanced.
