Mistakes = more opportunities

American self-help writer Napoleon Hill (1883-...

Napoleon Hill (1883-1970)

“Opportunity often comes in disguised in the form of
misfortune, or temporary defeat.”

~ Napoleon Hill

“What is defeat? Nothing but education. Nothing but the first step to something better.”

~ Wendell Phillips

Make a mistake and consider yourself more educated. Smart people learn from making mistakes. Mistakes are nothing more than something not going exactly as you or someone else had planned. Since life and humans are not perfect, we must accept our imperfections in the form of errors, mistakes, sins, etc. Remember, if you’re not making mistakes in life, then you’re not trying hard enough. The biggest mistake in life is to not admit you made one.
