Mistakes are part of who we are.
Nobody is perfect, and most of us came to terms with this fact a long time ago. Mistakes happen for a reason, and learning is one of them. If we don’t learn, we keep committing the same mistakes over and over again, and it becomes a cycle that may not be broken.
Therefore, we strive to learn from our mistakes, and when it comes to successful people, these are the things they never do twice:
Believing they can please everyone
Lesson learned, the first time. They may have made the mistake of thinking they can, but once they realize it is not possible, they never look back. They aim to be the best they can be instead.
Taking their eyes off the prize
Once burned by this action, they never do so again because the risk is too big and time too precious. They focus on getting things done instead and make great things happen in the process.
Attempting to change another person
This is an impossible task because one can only change when he so desires. Hence, attempting to change someone does not go well, and it does not work either. Successful people change for the better instead and hope others the best. It is the only thing they can do after all.
Being someone they are not
They tried but it was not worth it, and they have never thought about it again. They know that there is nothing more painful or pretentious than being someone others expect them to be rather than being who they ought to be.
Life is full of lessons and wisdom, and successful people take advantage of this. Things may not always end up in their favor, but they always end up learning and embracing each experience to enrich their lives and widen their horizons.
