Everything happens for a reason we just have to focus on the good side of it We can only learn from a mistake after we admit that we made it As soon as someone starts blaming other people for their mistakes or the universe itself we distance our self from any possible lessons But if we courageously stood up and honestly say This is my mistake and I am responsible the possibilities for learning will move towards you Admitting a mistake even if only privately to our self makes learning possible by moving the focus away from blame assignment and towards understanding Wise people admit their mistakes easily They know progress accelerates when they do This advice runs counter to the cultural assumptions we have about mistakes and failure namely that they are shameful things Were taught in school in our families or at work to feel guilty about failure and to do whatever we can to avoid mistakes This sense of shame combined with the inevitability of setbacks when attempting difficult things explains why many people give up on their goals Theyre not prepared for the mistakes and failures theyll face on their way to what they want The most important life lessons we will ever learn will be from the bad decisions we make Time and experience can be excellent teachers when you actually learn a lesson from your poor decisions Experience comes from our way of living understanding and the adjustments we make It also comes from suffering agony and the ordeals we are afflicted by We need to learn from our mistakes so that we do not run the risk of repeating them We must develop the wisdom and sense to make good decisions and choices Good judgment will only develop if we truly learn
