Why do we give ourselves a hard time when we make mistakes? And why do we amplify the mistakes and forget the successes? This feels like such a huge area that needs to be unpicked – as Mahatma Gandhi said “Freedom is not worth having if it does not include the freedom to make mistakes.”
And if we do not allow ourselves to have that freedom, if we do not allow ourselves to make mistakes, it directly impacts on our dreams, aspirations and general wellbeing. Being at ease with our successes and our mistakes opens up such a huge door of opportunity and creativity, all possibilities there for the taking... Just take a moment and feel how this would impact on your life.
Another great man (Einstein) said “Anyone who has never made a mistake has never tried anything new.” It’s interesting to do an assessment of what you’ve learnt from mistakes you’ve made in life. And what you’ve learnt from your successes in life. For me, I feel I’ve learnt much more from the mistakes, but that the successes are the jewels that give me the confidence to pick myself back up again when things have gone pear-shaped. But the crucial thing is, both speak to freedom.
