Learning the hard way
Sometimes we have to learn the hard way, even though it’s difficult at times. We have to make mistakes in life in order to learn from those mistakes. I think this is quintessential in any learning process and, what learning process has more of a learning curve than life?
I know many successful people have had more failures than they can count and I realize that they not only have a drive to succeed within them but have the ability to mistakes and then learn from them. I think, in order to succeed, you need to have those moments of failure. The real question is whether you will give in to failure or will you overcome and try harder the next time. I believe this is what differentiates successful people from the unsuccessful.
The bottom line is, learning things the hard way, although messy at times, can have a more meaningful impact on a persons life, career, or both. Learn from your mistakes but, try to make as few mistakes as possible along the way.
