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!

    1. Oh that is tough. I have been there and this my learning.

      Save regularly. Give yourself a break and give the computer a break, both shut down for 20 -30 mins in between, both get a rest, and less opportunity for a tech and personal crash.



      1. Thank you, I am currently writing about exactly why I have these issues. I don’t own a laptop and do EVERYTHING from a crappy Android device. Stay tuned for my post. You are so right, rest and detach. That is where I’m at now😊

      3. Good suggestions, thank you! I do use Google Drive but bc I work in a busy hotel I like to stay away from places like that😉
        My son and I were website surfing today and I think we have a good one picked out for not too much. I haven’t had a working laptop since 2014 🤪
