Have you ever wondered that what if you had more freedom to make mistakes and gave the people around to mess things up as well? This does not mean that you start rooting for things to go wrong; you simply need to have more compassion and understanding for them. By allowing our self and others to commit mistakes, you help to create an environment that is conducive to trust, risk-taking, forgiveness, creativity, and honest accomplishment.
It does seem a little risky to allow more freedom for making mistakes but it ironically creates conditions for fewer errors to occur and more productivity to take place. Following are ways to expand your capacity for making mistakes in a positive manner:
Let mistakes happen:
There is no perfect route to learn without stumbling in life. This means that you need to make mistakes in order to understand life patterns. Other people’s learning cannot be as much effective as your own because it lets you discover what works for you best. Instead of mourning for mistakes that happen, you have to become open to them. Learn how you can learn from them and grow.
Acknowledge the risks:
It is not possible for everyone to pursue goals and make efforts to achieving them. It involves a lot of courage to take the risks. This is the reason many people avoid challenging themselves with the fear that they might fail. This makes them remain stuck forever with the life they could change for better. Therefore, making mistakes means you are stronger than the rest. You need to appreciate yourself for coming forward and taking the risk. Do not focus on what you lost, pay attention to what you gained throughout the experience.
Everyone makes mistakes:
There is no single person on earth who became successful without making mistakes. Think about the people you admire today, read about their life, and learn what mistakes they made along the way. It will help you a lot to stay motivated and will remove your fear of failures.
Remain inattentive to groundless comments of others:
There are so many people who find it amusing to comment on others. a lot of childless couples make comments about other’s parenting styles, family members question about your decisions to travel the passport when they themselves don’t even have a passport, and colleagues who tell you that you made a bad decision when they do not have any business of their own. These are eh groundless comments you need to ignore because they know nothing about your situation and have no right to pass judgment.
