When you view life as a continual learning journey, you change your perspective from a short term view to a long term view. It allows you to focus on the benefits of the experiences, regardless of the mistakes you do. Mistakes are integral part of the learning process and as being a human. Mistakes are part of the menu of building self esteem and having a successful life. It is a requirement for engaging and fulfilling life rather than life full of avoidance and fear. Having a constructive view about mistakes, leads you to face challenging situation and bring courage into your life which from you can grow and be fulfilled.
You can avoid mistakes, complaint about mistake or you can learn from it. If you want to learn from your mistake, do the following. When you make a mistake, ask yourself: “What could I have done differently?” and “What have I learned from this mistake/experience?” Learn from the answer and remember the lesson. Ask yourself what you might have done differently. Could you have taken a different approach? Could you have planned better? What outcome might have occurred in that case? Remember, planning is essential – an old cliche but true “failing to plan, is planning to fail.” Learn from where you have gone wrong – nothing is a mistake if you can learn something from it.
