“Do not take yourself too seriously. You have to learn not to be dismayed at making mistakes. No human being can avoid failures.”- Lawrence G. Lovasik
And what are failures but feedback. Failure is not a stopping point on the road to success, it is only a pit stop. To evaluate and learn what didn’t work, so you can avoid the same mistake in the future. Then, continue down the road of success.
It is us who take ourselves to serious. That we should be perfect, and not make any mistakes, even when learning something new.
I wrote about learning like a child which you can read here. And you must learn like a child all your life, make mistakes or failures, and learn from them and continue on. Imagine kids stopping to learn something with one failure. Like falling down when they learn to walk. We would all be crawling.
