"If you can't make a mistake, you can't make anything."
I don't know about you, but I wish I'd stumbled across this quote a lot sooner in my life. For me, mistakes were all about wrong, wrong, wrong--not a chance to try again and get it right.
I like Marva Collins' attitude. It's the whole "If at first you don't succeed, try, try again!" approach to life, instead of the "If at first you don't succeed, you're wrong! So, sit on the bench and let somebody else do it right!" approach.
Mistakes happen. If nothing else, it means we're in the game. We're trying. We're living.
Made any mistakes today? Good for you. You're in the game!
