“The sages do not consider that making no mistakes is a blessing. They believe, rather, that the great virtue of man lies in his ability to correct his mistakes and continually make a new man of himself.”
~ Wang Yang-Ming (1472-1529) Chinese Philosopher
Making mistakes is a part of life but correcting them isn’t something we work hard enough at doing. A surefire way to improve yourself is to always be looking for ways to do things better than the way you did when you failed. Since we are not born with a life manual and instruction booklet, we must use our experiences to get us through life which sometimes have favorable outcomes and not so favorable outcomes. So, next time you make a mistake – big or small – carry on and virtue will come to you.
