Create room for mistakes

Create room for mistakes. One would be surprised to see such a title and ask ” What message is this guy trying to convey? Does he mean that we should open ourselves to failures and mistakes “. Another might also ask “Why should I create a room for failure?, What’s wrong with giving success all available spaces? “.
Creating room for failures or mistakes doesn’t mean allowing failures or mistakes to take over rather it allows space for improvements.
I always tell my brother this “You can’t get the true feeling of success if you haven’t felt failure” and again, ” Success and failure are like identical twins in that you have to choose right to get your desire”.
Let’s take a research chemist who is researching on a new element for an example. His first three experiments may be failures due to mistakes made but the room he has  already made for failures/mistakes will cause him to forge ahead which may result him being successful in the proceeding experiment. The joy that he will feel will be so high that he won’t even remember that he had made mistakes in the past.
Again, in some titrations, it’s the sharp colour change that shows that the chemical reaction in the resulting solution is complete. This colour change is achieved when the titrant is in excess a bit. That’s a mistake (error) of which without it won’t be easy to know when the reaction is complete.
There is this article in “HANDBOOK OF THE LEGION OF MARY” titled “Failure is a postponed success”. The title alone always got me going, motivating me to push forward till I reach the desired target.
The watchwords are -Don’t give up. Go for that thing you have set up your mind to achieve even if you fall get up and keep going. Just as a friend will say to me “never allow the fear of losing stop you from playing the game”.
Mary Tyler Moore got this to advise “take chances, make mistakes. That’s how you grow. Pain nourishes your courage. You have to fail in order to practice being brave”. Also Steve Harvey made a similar remark “failure is a great teacher, and I think when you make mistakes and you recover from them and you treat as valuable learning experience, then you have got something to share”.
#You don’t be the number one by playing safe.
Live right 👉.
