Our life is a constant learning . Sometimes we believe that only young children can learn new things , but we must be aware that each of the things that happen to us in our day to day can have a direct impact on us , causing other types of events to be triggered, which may or may not be planned.

On many occasions, what we had planned to do does not go the way we wanted and this can generate some frustration . We say then that we have made a mistake , since we have carried out an activity waiting for an end that has not been the one that happened at the end. However, we cannot always control everything around us and it depends on many factors that we obtain the desired results at all times.

It may be that we ourselves have not calculated the scale of this fact well, which may have led to the bad result , regardless of the other factors. We call this failure then error , considering that it has been our fault that it did not work as we had in mind. Many may become frustrated in this situation and block themselves, without realizing that the mistakes made are always an opportunity to learn and apply this knowledge in the future , so that we can avoid these mistakes and we can achieve, with patience and effort , the desired results in the first instance.

The importance of believing in yourself

The majority of people who get frustrated with mistakes are usually those who have little self-confidence . People whose self-esteem may have been damaged and have very low vision of their own person . Therefore, it is essential to understand that everyone makes mistakes and that not having made them means not having tried. Sometimes it is better to jump in and see what happens , as long as it does not harm the person committing the action or those around them. Otherwise, one would be left wanting to know what would have happened. In the event that the result is an error, that person will know that this action may not be the most appropriate, but at least you will have proof of it for having tried it and, in the future, you could try again in another way, knowing that this does not work .

On the other hand, insecurity can lead to fear of failure. There are people who want to control everything at every moment . This causes them to live with great anxiety and that when things do not happen as they would like their world to shake. For this reason, they may not dare to take new actions in their day to day , for fear of making mistakes. But in this way they are not living one hundred percent and they are not enjoying life as they deserve. The moment they understand that making mistakes is vital to learning new things and moving forward in life, they will be able to lose this fear and anxiety that may travel with them at all times.

The theory of trial and error

Most of the things that we learn in life , since we are little, we do it through the theory of trial and error , that is, we try to do something and if it comes out well we know that it is beneficial or that we will be successful if we do it. this action in this way, but if it goes wrong we learn that this is not the best way to do it . When we are young, as well as as adults, people who love us may give us advice and tell us what to do, but in most cases, it is not until we make the mistake ourselves that we see why it was advisable. do it or not in the way indicated by others.

So, on many occasions it is important that we try something ourselves , take a risk , just to see if it works or not. In case the result is a mistake, we should not take it as a defeat , but thanks to the theory of trial and error sometimes we will achieve the desired results and at other times we will learn from our own failure. The essential thing is to understand that the error is simply a fact that has not gone as expected, but never a failure .

Nobody has a perfect life and we have all had to carry out many actions that have not turned out as we wanted the first time, but thanks to these mistakes we have been able to keep trying , looking for new ways to achieve the desired goals and, with patience and perseverance , achieving them. the large one. Because the path of success is not a straight line, but it has many curves and it is necessary to know that mistakes will help you to be better , find new paths, and learn what does not work and what you should not do again in the future to be happy as you deserve .
