How willing are you to make mistakes? Mistakes are a resource. It helps you find the edge of your capacities. Big achievements demand a willingness to make mistakes.
Are you someone who knows the most or is willing to learn the most? The edge usually goes to the curious professional that executes, not the one who is simply protecting what’s already known.
What are you truly capable of? You can’t just hang out in the safe zone of behavior where you believe you have beaten the odds of failing. Unless you allow yourself to make mistakes, you will never have the opportunity to test the limits of what you are capable of accomplishing.
How far away are you from truly reaching your limits? If you’re experiencing no difficulties, problems, or pain, you’ve most likely leveled off in your growth.
When we send a rocket towards the moon, about 90% of the time it’s off course - it fails its way to the moon by continually making mistakes and correcting them.
Mistakes and failure do not mean defeat. The difficulties are just evidence that you’re learning and progressing.
Cheers to staying curious and making progress.
