If You Don’t Make Mistakes, You Aren’t Really Trying
Businesses have their ups and downs; just like life. There will be times when us, as entrepreneurs will make a mistake and encounter challenges.
But you must not be discouraged by these mistakes. Instead, we must view them as proofs that we are on our way to become successful. Coleman Hawkins said, “If you don’t make mistakes, you aren’t really trying.”
Trying is a big part of being successful. It is when we go and take the risk for the sake of our goals and our dreams. There will be times when we fail and succeed in certain tasks; either way each act brings us closer to our goals.
Successful entrepreneurs don’t discount their mistakes. They use them to learn and improve. For them, it is a sure sign that you are actually doing something about your dreams. Trying is better than sitting around wishing about something. Trying things out and making mistakes might not get us to our goals tomorrow, but it would sure bring us closer to it.
There is no fullproof way to success. The road to success will be bumpy. Often, it will take a toll on you. But you must never give up. You must keep trying; only then will you succeed.
Nobody ever became successful when they stopped trying. So continue to learn from your mistakes and reach your goal.
