I’m Comfortable Making Mistakes

May 2nd 2006

I once heard that one of the fastest ways to success is failing often.

Well, I’ve made a lot of mistakes over the years, so I just might be nearing my success years!

I haven’t always been comfortable being wrong, making mistakes, or failing. Actually, I used to be very uncomfortable with all three of these areas…afraid to fail; not wanting to make a mistake; and having the desire to be right.

In other words, quite the competitor, perfectionist, and know it all.

I’m still quite competitive, I strive for excellence versus perfection, and I’ve learned my wife is right much more often than I am!

I can’t say I’m comfortable making mistakes or failing, but I don’t take each as hard, knowing there’s a lesson to be learned, much to be gained, and much more to lose if you always try to be right.
