“Mistakes are the portals of discovery.”
Rather than focusing on avoiding mistakes, which are inevitable for anyone trying to push themselves to achieve their dreams, to challenge their capabilities, and to explore possibilities, the real value-add activity is to use mistakes to learn. When mistakes are a result of carelessness, the key learning is the need for intentional action. But when mistakes are the result of intentionally pushing boundaries, the discoveries can be profound – but only if you take the time to carefully reflect, learn and apply the learning to your actions ahead. Push yourself to discover the wisdom in your inevitable mistakes.
