A Mistake, A Failure. Or A Success, A learning opportunity?

A Mistake, A Failure. Or  A Success, A learning opportunity?

I have not failed. I’ve just found 10,000 ways that won’t work.

Thomas Edison

What is a mistake?

A mistake is a lost learning opportunity. If we learn from the mistake it is no longer a mistake. It has turned into a learning opportunity. It has become experience.

I value all my mistakes,for I would not have learnt what I needed to learn.

But, there are times that I feel I wish I hadn’t made that mistake, and had the sense and foresight.

Life is a balance, sometimes we can see before getting our hands burnt, and sometimes we have to get them burnt to learn the lesson.

Either way what matters is that we have learnt.

What is Success?

Our greatest weakness lies in giving up. The most certain way to succeed is always to try just one more time.

Thomas Edison


A failure or a mistake are only that, when we don’t learn. Or when we give up before learning the lesson, or achieving success.

None of us know how close we are to success. We should be wise to keep trying, but at the same time we must not be foolish!
