When You Make a Mistake with Women

Mistakes Are the Price of Success

by Sting

"Today is the first day of the rest of your life."

I'm sure you've heard or read the foregoing phrase numerous times, but I bet you've never really understood it.

Essentially, you need to forget about your past mistakes, or rather, forget about the disappointment and pain they've caused you, while retaining the lessons you learned from those experiences.

You must tell yourself that every mistake you have made in your life is one less mistake you'll make in the future — provided you've learned the lesson it was meant to teach you.

While it may seem contradictory, every time you make a mistake you come closer to your goal. Your mistakes are actually a measure of your strength, not your weakness. They are indicia of future success. Mistakes are merely the price you must pay to succeed.

You must persevere in your desire to succeed in whatever you do — provided you are passionate about what you are doing. If you are truly passionate about what you are doing, you will never look upon your mistakes as failures.

Remember, EVERYTHING that happens to you is intended to teach you something. There is no shame in making mistakes. The only true failures are when you don't learn anything from your mistakes.
