The Bible says that man is not perfect. Knowing in your heart that being human is being imperfect and that you cannot expect more of yourself than you are capable of, you can begin to let go of the fear of failure and open your mind to wanting to take chances and make mistakes in order to grow. The challenge is in not looking at the times you fell, but in sharpening your focus on how many times you've gotten back up. Every mistake you make is an opportunity to learn and grow as a person.
Fear not failing.
Fear not taking chances.
Fear not learning.
Think of the three biggest mistakes you've made in the past -- the words you most wish you could take back, the deeds you are ashamed of, and the most pain you may have caused another, intentionally or not. Relive the feelings of the time -- the hurt, frustration, and embarrassment. Take this psychic pain and let it go. Forgive yourself. Ask for forgiveness from those you hurt. Recognize that you are not a bad person. You are human. You may have done bad things and caused pain to others, but it is your actions that are bad, not you.
The most important lesson in life is to learn from your mistakes and not repeat them over and over. In learning how to not repeat the errors of your past, you also learn to ask for forgiveness. If you are fortunate enough to still have the people in your life, try asking for their forgiveness today for the mistakes you may have made in the past. Think about how good you would feel if someone did this to you, if you received a call or letter asking for forgiveness from someone who hurt you and caused you pain.
Being able to admit a mistake builds bridges. After that, the challenge is to not repeat the same ones over and over and learn from the mistakes you make today.
Understanding about mistakes help us to forgive the people around us, who have made mistakes and caused hurt, anger and disappointments in us. By understanding these, it helps us to feel better and for easier to forgive people who bring us hurt.
If you have made mistakes... there is always another chance for you ... you may have a fresh start any moment you choose, for this thing we call 'failure' is not the falling down, but the staying down. ~ Mary Pickford
