“Insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results”, one of the most brilliant quotes ever said by Einstein. As humans, unconsciously we sometimes make the same mistakes and hope for better consequences. Optimism is great, but learning from previous mistakes is greater!
“Optimism is great, but learning from previous mistakes is greater!”
Our brains sometimes trick us to use the same methods in relationships fights, family arguments, business meetings, driving routes and even in our diet plans and expect that things might change this time. The news is, this time will be like the previous one. Don’t be afraid from facing your mistake, take a deep breath and analyze why this slip-up took place. Search for other options so as not to commit it again. Having the same undesirable results over and over brings nothing but disappointment and despair.
“Forgiving other people’s mistakes is a sign of an open mind and not just a fluffy heart.”
Mistakes shouldn’t be counted as shameful acts and shouldn’t haunt us for the rest of our lives. Life is full of opportunities; there is always light at the end of each dim tunnel for a reason, which is how we basically learn from our mistakes; by welcoming opportunities that make us better and flexible people who are always eager to evolve.
Inflexible people who don’t work on themselves or opt for change are runaways who don’t want to admit that they were wrong about a decision or just lazy and don’t care about developing themselves. Forgiveness and tolerance are also signs of courage. Forgiving other people’s mistakes is a sign of an open mind and not just a fluffy heart.
“rollercoaster rides are sometimes insanely scary but always super fun!”
It takes a lot of courage to admit a mistake and it takes a lot of wisdom to know how to take other options or choices to provide better results.
It’s a very boring life if you always walk in straight lines; rollercoaster rides are sometimes insanely scary but always super fun!
