In our world today, the obsession for success has eaten deep into the hearts of men that the last thing you want to do is make a mistake. People love to put labels and are the first ones to point out the moment you commit a mistake — intentionally or unintentionally.

My guy! Don’t be afraid to make mistakes. Making mistakes is an excellent approach to learn and unlearn new information. In reality, through committing some of the most silly mistakes, you get to acquire the best life lessons.

Also, just the word ‘mistake’ is capable of striking fear in a lot of people’s minds when it really shouldn’t. It makes them worried, confused, and at times, overwhelmed too. However, in reality, when something goes wrong or unexpected, you look for alternatives and new approaches than whining or complaining.

For all those who think that they don’t have any specific way of working, you have one — it’s just that you don’t know about it yet. I have realized that mistakes play an instrumental role in helping us discover our style. The majority of us are unable to move past our crippling fear of making mistakes and muster the guts to try. I advise making such mistakes despite shaking hands, a trembling voice, and hearing your heartbeat.

Even if you don’t succeed, you will emerge from it a more improved and evolved person. In fact, making mistakes is a great way to develop personally. Making a mistake proves that there is a proper method to do something. If you are determined to succeed, you will risk everything to make it happen.

Try to learn from your mistakes, but better it is to learn from other people’s mistakes.
