To Err is Human. To Continue, Sublime.

Trying something new is good for us. It brings variety to our life and makes us stronger. At the beginning, there is a propensity to err, to make mistakes, to get it wrong. This is not only very frustating, but it puts us in the wrong frame of mind.

As the mistakes pile up, there is a tendency to adopt the strong feeling that we are failing. This feeling will slow us down and inhibit our progress. We may even quit this new venture before it has barely begun, all because of the perception of failure.


The superior attitude in any new undertaking is to view each mistake as a correction or improvement. We truly do learn from our mistakes. This learning is slow enough already, why make it harder just because of the wrong attitude or outlook?

The road to success has failures for mile markers.
