Chapter 7, Page 20, Book 20


If you are not making mistakes, then youre not doing anything.

John Wooden


July 20th  - mistakes are a part of life


There are no mistakes or failures, only lessons.

Dennis Waitley

Don’t be afraid of making mistakes, for there is no other way of learning how to live. Making mistakes is part of being human.  We won’t know if we can do anything until we try.  The important thing is to try and don’t our fear of making a mistake hold us back.  We need to learn and grow.  

There are lot of lessons in life to be learned, and I’ve found that I’ve made the same mistake more than once.  Until I get it right I’ll get the same lesson over and over again.  We have to learn from our mistakes if we want to avoid them happening again.

We have to face up to our mistakes and not blame them on other people and take responsibility for what we’ve done  We don’t want to dwell on our mistakes, but let it go and move on.  Make a plan to that will help you avoid making a similar mistake.  What works for one will not always work for another, so we have to find what works for us.

Each mistake can be an opportunity to get stronger and become better. 


No matter how many mistakes you make or how slow you progress, youre still way ahead of everyone who isnt trying.

Tony Robbins

Mistakes are an opportunity to grow and learn.

Can't help but think that I wish our elected officials would realize and correct some of their recent mistakes!

So true that we can learn from our mistakes. I think owning up to them is a sign of maturity.

Reassuring to know it's normal to make the same mistake more than once! Owning up to our own shortcomings is a hard lesson ... but a sign of maturity, too. This morning in Bible study our facilitator was telling a cute story of explaining "Pride" (goeth before a fall) to her 5 and 3 y/o nephews. You know, sometimes lessons meant for the very young pack the biggest punch.

YEP, mistakes are a big part of life, like sticking your hand into ivy and not knowing that a copperhead is in there waiting. LOL
just catching up,
