Mistakes are amazing. They’re so amazing, in fact, they’re *essential* to do anything worthwhile, so long as you won’t presume it’ll be persistent or fatal.
There is nothing you’ll do and accomplish that doesn’t risk your making mistakes. In fact, you can’t achieve ANYTHING new without risking not being able to do it.
In other words, you can’t achieve any sort of success without risking failure.
Yet, it’s more than that. ALL of confidence is because of experience. There is no confidence without experience.
“Confidence without experience” is arrogance. It’s actually not confidence but estimation.
SINCE confidence can only be because of experience, all the confidence you have, you have, because you’ve risked making mistakes, and have made mistakes.
Here’s a wondrous perspective also… all mistakes afford you one of two things:
1, that you learn from it… or
2, you die from it.
So with proper expectation management and basic planning, you can lower the risk of anything being fatal… and always increase the certainty – all the way to absolute certainty – that you’ll learn from every mistake!
