It is often said that the one who doesn’t learn from their mistakes is bound to repeat them, and in my few years in this earth, I can surely bare testimony to that. That is why it is important to be wrong sometimes so that you can learn important lessons that come with failure and eventually you will get it right. Many of us fear being wrong because we have been brain washed to believe that those who get things wrong are stupid and to be successful you have to know everything. Many might deny this fact but if one carefully studies how our education system works, they will come to this very conclusion as well. But that is a story for another day and if you want to understand more about this you can find a book online called “Weapons of mess instruction” by John Taylor Gatto.
What I can tell you from my own personal experience is that being wrong about something is the best thing that can happen to you because it gives you a new opportunity to learn something new. That is how I started a business from basically nothing, through trial and error. But if I was afraid to fail, then I would not have even got this far 3 years later. Look at those whom society would call successful people today, they all had their fair share of trial and error and some didn’t even finish school nor varsity but they still made it. Being wrong about things before you get them right is a blessing, you learn to be humbled, gain courage, confidence and wisdom. So don’t hide yourself in a shell while being afraid to share your opinion or to chase a new venture or a dream you have. If you fear the unknown, they will remain unknown.
