A Quick Note on Mistakes

It’s easy to feel like a failure when you make a big mistake. Any time a blunder results in a significant setback, it’s easy to want to kick yourself.

However, no mistake, no matter how huge, justifies self-loathing. There’s a mantra I often tell myself: You only fail when you quit. A mistake is no big deal in the grand scheme of things; it simply represents a plan that didn’t go as expected.

We shouldn’t be quick to reject the notion of failure. The most successful people I know would say to expect many failures on the path to your dream.

This advice isn’t always easy to take, but the more you fail, the more you learn. And the closer you get to your next major milestone.
