    Because although we learn from our mistakes, we don't enjoy the steps that must be taken to correct one.

    Because learning hurts, and often we can't afford to make a mistake in the first place.

    Here is a really good quotation....

    "It is a great mistake never to commit one."  written by Ivan Panin

    Who was Ivan Panin??  He was an avid athiest from the Soviet Union back in the 1800's.  He did something very interesting. You might want to google "Ivan Panin" if you are curious.

    You can lean and recover from some mistakes.
    However, there are mistakes that can have catastrophic consequences. We should be afraid to make such mistakes.

    People equate mistakes with failure and no one wants to be a failure. If we could shift our thinking from "failure" to learning from trial and error, we might be more willing to keep trying till we succeed. We think that a mistake means we should stop, when in actual fact all it has shown us is that the way we attempted to solve the problem didn't work and we need to move on to the next step toward a solution.

    On the one hand, I'm pretty comfortable with, and not afraid of, making mistakes.  On the other hand, some mistakes can have serious consequences.

    I'm not sure we all learn from our mistakes, and I'm not any of us always learns learns all our mistakes.  Even when we do learn from them, though, what we learn isn't always the best thing to have learned.

    Personally, I have to say that I've done things/made choices that are mistake-free, and I've done things/made choices that involved having made a mistake.  I like mistake-free better.

    afraid of being hurt, afraid of the change it will make in our lives. But from my point of view mistakes are lessons to be learned from and to grow from
