Mistakes Are Proof That You Are Trying

I’ve made little mistakes. Big blunders. Sometimes I’ve outright failed. And that’s OK. 

Because the thing about getting something wrong is that learning how *not* to do things is just as important as getting them right.                       If you never mess up, how can you look back, learn and improve yourself? 

Sometimes when you make a mistake, you get a second chance to get it right. But you have to be willing to reflect on your missteps, no matter how scary that may be. It’s far worse to hold yourself back because you’re too afraid to fail. 

Remember that mistakes are proof that you’re trying. So go ahead and try, then try again in a better way. Whenever I’m faced with a new challenge I ask myself, “What’s the worst that could happen?” 

Ask yourself the same thing the next time you want to take a leap in life. I promise you won’t regret it.
