A Life without Mistakes or Failures

Updated on May 14, 2012

What if we went through life without making any mistakes?

What if we never fell when trying to learn to walk?

What if we never fell while trying to learn to ride a bike?

What if you never touched that stove with you were told not too?

What if we never did anything wrong?

What if we never broke a rule, stayed out past our curfew,

Or dated the wrong guy?

What if as we got older, we never asked the question why?

What if we actually did know it all?

What if we never failed at anything?

The point of all this is to say that life does come with mistakes, mistakes are things that we do unintentionally. Many times people get so upset with themselves when they make a mistake but that is how we learn. The only person that does not make mistakes is God and even He knows when we will make a mistake. Life is about growing and learning and when we make a mistake, we learn and grow from it. So don’t be so hard on yourself when you mistake or fail at something. Just keep trying. Each time will be different. Now this is not to say that you continue to make the same mistakes because if that happens, that simply means that WE have not learned from them. In the words of Fredrick Douglas “No struggle, no progress”, things are not suppose to be easy but they do become easier they more that you work at them. Be encouraged.
