Why do you always keep it safe? Why not try and have more mistakes in your life?
Along your way, you must experience a variety of a failure. Do you think “Failure” is negative? I believe there are a lot of positive aspects in it.
Don’t say “I am too old” “I am ashamed”…
When you look back at the track, it must be shining in the future.
As you get older, the risk that you have to take is heavier. So now, it is a better idea to make more mistakes because of the advantages below.
Failure stories attract your listener!
Your story can give your listener a big impact and you can catch the attention easily because of “Schadenfreude”.
This word is taken from German which literally means ‘Harm-Joy’. It is the feeling of joy or pleasure when one sees another fail or suffer from misfortune.
In other words, people love your stories of sufferings.
People feel close to you!
First of all, failure stories are more interesting and people feel close to you. They don’t want to listen to your boastful story otherwise you are prominently great. It is just like you are bragging…
Your friends evaluate you are a simple and sincere person. Though you made a mistake, you will be trusted automatically if you tell your mistakes.
More Failures, more sympathetic!
Nobody wants to make mistakes. You must get depressed and make your self-assessment lower. Basically, this feeling cannot be shared with others easily only if he/she makes a similar blunder.
Naturally, you can sympathize with those who are in the same boat.
This is very important for leaders.
Failures are opportunities!
As long as you don’t give up, you can develop yourself. There are 2 ways to learn something from your failure.
1：Realize the action leading your failure
You can realize “What to do” and “What not to do” like the pattern for making errors so that you won’t make the same mistakes.
2：Know how to recover from mistakes
When things don’t to go well, you have to compensate or fix the situation. This procedure is quite meaningful for your improvements.
However, you cannot correct the failure without understanding the reason of your mistakes. Along the way, you can absorb and recover something significant by just watching your boss fixing the matter.
The difference between amateurs and professionals is: whether they can correct the error by themselves or not.
Many of life’s failures are people who did not realize how close they were to success when they gave up.
