I’m selfish, impatient and a little insecure. I make mistakes, I am out of control and at times hard to handle. But if you can’t handle me at my worst, then you sure as hell don’t deserve me at my best.
Anyone who has never made a mistake has never tried anything new.
Isn’t it nice to think that tomorrow is a new day with no mistakes in it yet?
I hope that in this year to come, you make mistakes. Because if you are making mistakes…you’re Doing Something.
A life spent making mistakes is not only more honorable, but more useful than a life spent doing nothing.
-George Bernard Shaw
Experience is merely the name men gave to their mistakes.
Freedom is not worth having if it does not include the freedom to make mistakes.
Everything tells me that I am about to make a wrong decision, but making mistakes is just part of life. What does the world want of me? Does it want me to take no risks, to go back to where I came from because I didn’t have the courage to say “yes” to life?
Have no fear of perfection – you’ll never reach it.
When you find your path, you must not be afraid. You need to have sufficient courage to make mistakes. Disappointment, defeat, and despair are the tools God uses to show us the way.
If people refuse to look at you in a new light and they can only see you for what you were, only see you for the mistakes you’ve made, if they don’t realize that you are not your mistakes, then they have to go.
Make your mistakes, take your chances, look silly, but keep on going. Donât freeze up.
Never interrupt your enemy when he is making a mistake.
Learn from the mistakes of others. You can never live long enough to make them all yourself.
To err is human, to forgive, divine.
It’s only those who do nothing that make no mistakes, I suppose.
I hope that in this year to come, you make mistakes.
Because if you are making mistakes, then you are making new things, trying new things, learning, living, pushing yourself, changing yourself, changing your world. You’re doing things you’ve never done before, and more importantly, you’re Doing Something.
So that’s my wish for you, and all of us, and my wish for myself. Make New Mistakes. Make glorious, amazing mistakes. Make mistakes nobody’s ever made before. Don’t freeze, don’t stop, don’t worry that it isn’t good enough, or it isn’t perfect, whatever it is: art, or love, or work or family or life.
Whatever it is you’re scared of doing, Do it.
Make your mistakes, next year and forever.
Even when you have doubts, take that step. Take chances. Mistakes are never a failureâthey can be turned into wisdom.
