“Do not hold a grip on ”shaping” other people’s perceptions of you. Honor yourself of what you are at any given moment with authenticity and let people decide what they think about that. When you’re willing to be seen as someone who makes mistakes and has flaws, you’re essentially telling yourself being human isn’t something to be ashamed of.”
“Not everyone who makes a mistake gains useful knowledge from the experience. Most people explain away their failures, unwilling to stare into the light and see that their sacred cows were really just cows. Are you strong enough to see the truth and name it? Are you willing to identify the substance of your own mistakes? Are you willing to truly know freedom, contentment and love? The change begins with you.” ~ Ameet.
“If I had my life to live over… I’d dare to make more mistakes next time.”

“Mistakes are a part of being human. Appreciate your mistakes for what they are: precious life lessons that can only be learned the hard way. Unless it’s a fatal mistake, which, at least, others can learn from.”
– Al Franken
“It becomes apparent that everyone makes mistakes. This is one of life’s realities, and to admit it is already to have taken a great step forward. If we are to tread the narrow path of truth and keep our hold upon reality, we have to agree that all of us can err; otherwise we should all be perfect. So it is well to cultivate a friendly feeling toward error, to treat it as a companion inseparable from our lives, as something having a purpose which it truly has.”
~ Maria Montessori
“Learn to get in touch with the silence within yourself, and know that everything in life has purpose. There are no mistakes, no coincidences, All events are blessings given to us to learn from.”
~ Elizabeth Kubler-Ross
“A person who makes no mistakes usually does not make anything.”
So mistake or discovery? You decide? You’ll always be right – for you.
