Mastering your Mistakes
Everyone fears mistakes and the main reason is judgement.
Especially the fears of being judged by those superior to and nearest to us.
The truth is, it’s okay to be judged on the condition that you
believe in yourself. You made a mistake and you can attain for it,
accept it and admit to it. Your decisions are yours to make and definitely makes you who you are.
If you don’t make your choices and own decisions, you’ll never truly be your own person. Other people will manipulate, encourage and influence you but it’s the decision you take afterwards that makes
you a person.
If this seems too inspiring, think of baby steps. If an infant were
never to fall over while trying to walk, he would never discover the
fear of falling and the love of standing upright without dropping.
Falling shows them what happens if one walks without balance and they seek to conquer that in order to walk confidently. No matter how old you are, motivation drives our impulses to grow and
mistakes are the stepping stones to success along the way.
Change in Every Step
With every choice you make, there’s going to be change and change
will bring along mistakes. Just as well, mistakes can bring along
change. To clear it up, a great example would be to walk down a
new path. Rather than going down the same path every day which by the way, can get a little boring. Try a new one! It may be longer, it may be shorter. It’s up to you to figure out how best to navigate., at least you have access to it.
Sometimes, the act of motivation to navigate and discover may your way may involve change! Embrace change. It can bring with it experience, knowledge, and development. The changes should never be feared. Change helps you look at things differently. You may see new things while you walk, notice the environment, familiarize with it, notice the trees and the new faces along the way.
One thing to understand is that change is like a back
alley in the dead of night, you don’t know what awaits at the end.
So what if you make mistakes?
Mistakes are inevitable and nothing to be ashamed of. Innocent mistakes are like tripping on a crack on the alley you didn’t know was there. Locals in the neighbourhood may not make this mistake because they knew, but you didn’t and so it came to be your oversight. This can definitely make change seem intimidating. Fear not! How about walking down a new road in a new world in a different country?. It’s a completely different group
of people around you, with different expectations, different
surroundings and different mentalities. You definitely don’t want
to trip over any cracks here. But you may, and who cares?
Now you know and understand that, when you walked down that new path and stumbled over the crack, you learnt something. That is, you know that there is a crack in the sidewalk and the next round, you’ll cautiously watch out for it. Meaning? You developed an awareness. Tripping over a crack may be such an insignificant thing to do, but there’s a lot behind the action. That’s why you can never overlook your mistakes. They are lessons in disguise.
