What unintentional mistake are you going to make today? Are you going to give an incorrect answer, take a wrong turn, or break something you’re working on?

Many life changing innovations are the results of mistakes people have made. They attempted to do one thing and as a result of an error in the process they ended up with something totally different.  Studies show that successful people actually tend to be more accepting of mistakes because they know it takes many different approaches to eventually succeed at any endeavor.

Allowing yourself to be more tolerant with your mistakes will give you the courage over time to try different approaches to challenges and problems. So don’t beat yourself up when you make a mistake but take the opportunity to learn from it. At least you know what not to do next time you’re in the same situation.

“A person who never made a mistake never tried anything new.” – Albert Einstein
