The freedom to live also includes the freedom to commit mistakes. In fact, if you are not committing mistakes, you are not moving in the right direction. But, some mistakes should happen in your life, or rather, you should do them knowingly or unknowingly before you turn out to be a fine human being.
Yes, that's the law!
Mistakes polish you, give you a chance to evolve and emerge a winner. Treat them as cherished possessions, assets and something dear to you. Because experiences that you gain from these mistakes are your real teachers. Books might enhance your knowledge, but mistakes will make you smart, confident and wise. That's something more important than all the acquired knowledge that you have in your head.
Today, let's read about these 13 mistakes that you should experience so that you turn out to be a loving and mature human being. Everyone wants that, no?
Because mistakes are a way to bring you on the right path. The path that you deserve. The path that's meant for you. So, you need to pause for a while, listen carefully to the messages that your mistakes are trying to give you. If you don't listen to the 'message' and correct them, they will keep coming back.
Choosing a wrong career line will eventually help you choose the right career, which may also be your passion or hobby. Because that's a trial and experiment phase which may help you introspect and pick up what is right for you.
During the teenage years, our hormones are on fire, and we may fall in love with a wrong person. Initially, it may look like real love, but with the passage of time you may feel that s/he is not the right person for you, and you will just feel better walking out. And then, you will choose with a wiser eye!.
That's where the lesson comes from. A tough boss can test your patience and show you the mirror. You will realize your worth with a tough boss. Don't forget what Bill Gates said - If you thought life was tough in school, wait till you get a tough boss.
Failing at an exam will teach you the 'real lessons' which are far more important than the lessons that are in your book. It will throw you into a make-or-break situation, and of course, you will have to work double hard to come out of it.
It's difficult to understand people. More so, when you are young. To identify people, you need some terrible experiences where you can filter your jealous friends and form real, meaningful friendships. Friends that last for a lifetime.
Now something to make you mentally tough. You need to go through some serious kind of mental breakdown or some complex mental condition, like extreme stress, that will eventually make you mentally tougher once you are out of it. Because in life, you need to experience it all.
We have lots of subject choices in school, college, etc. But it happens that sometimes we choose a wrong subject, and we have to study the complete syllabus, despite not liking it. And this is what is going to test your patience. Do what you don't like - this will make you tough, really tough.
When you trust a wrong person, you get a lesson for life. And now, you are not going to trust easily. A crucial lesson, indeed.
This will put you in a horrible situation. This will hurt you badly. No emotional pain is like the pang of one sided love. You need to put every ounce of you together to overcome it. But when you are out of it, you are a new, reinvented and evolved person.
Yes, and the addiction may be to your smartphone, alcohol, porn or whatever. This addiction will make your life topsy-turvy. But this is when you realize that you have to give up your addiction. That it can badly hamper with your life and relations. Again, that's when you understand the importance of life without addictions.
In a relationship, sometimes you choose the raunchy and the bad over the good. But nice men don't finish last, neither do nice girls. They end up CEOs of Google, Microsoft, and Pepsico. When you pick a nice person for a relationship, you get less stress and more fulfillment.
You earn money, and you spend it. You don't save it until you lose your job or get into a difficult financial situation. But you need to be a spendthrift once to understand the importance of saving money. Difficult times will teach you anyway.
Now that's going to be the most important part. Do you have a dream? Yes? So why should you work for someone else's dream? Start thinking about your dream from today itself and pursue it. Working for someone else's dream is futile and a waste of time.
Once you are through all these mistakes, you will become a gem of a person, a diamond.
A human being in the true sense. A complete human being and a success, shall I say?
