I have learned throughout my life as a composer chiefly through my mistakes and pursuits of false assumptions, not by my exposure to founts of wisdom and knowledge.”―Igor Stravinsky

Learn from other people’s mistakes. Life is too short to make them all yourself.-Sam Levenson

My life is full of mistakes. They’re like pebbles that make a good road.-Beatrice Wood

don’t be afraid to make mistakes.

Life is not totally without fault nor is it totally perfect. There are faults and there is no individual who can live a perfect life or a life without mistakes. Life must have mistakes and faults. The key thing is not one’s inability to make mistakes but what does one do after committing an error or making a mistake. When mistakes are made, there are two ways of dealing with the mistakes. One of the ways is that of analyzing the mistakes and using such mistakes and its lessons to move forward. Another is that of analyzing the mistakes and using lesson from the mistakes as a shield against taking action or moving forward.

When an individual lives, he must be prepared to make mistakes. A life spent trying to make sure that everything is done right is not a fulfilled life. One needs to understand that mistakes can be a means towards helping a man to develop. It is important to note that it was a mistake that led to the development of penicillin that saved the lives of a lot of people. When one spends time making sure that nothing goes wrong, one may not be able to do anything.

The best thing however is to see within each mistake a seed for development. The individual must work towards exploring without being afraid of errors or mistakes. Mistakes or errors are like blocks; the decision to turn them into stumbling blocks or building blocks depends on each individual.
