SAMPLE TEXT FROM BOOK...
Successful people understand that to achieve their goals, they cannot
be afraid to make mistakes. Mistakes are part of the process of learning
and realizing your goals and objectives. If you do not make any
mistakes, chances are you are not pushing yourself to be better than
This is not to suggest you have to make all of the mistakes yourself.
You can also gain valuable insights and learn from others who have
made mistakes, thereby preventing you from having to repeat their
One of the contributing factors in people being afraid to make mistakes
is that throughout your life, at home, in school, or in the work
place, you are frequently warned against making mistakes. People
condition you to believe that as long as you are mindful, do tasks
slowly and carefully, and learn from the errors of others, there is no
need for you to make a mistake.
Therefore, when you do make a mistake you fear being criticized for
not being diligent enough, not thinking things through, or not listening.
As a result of what you have been constantly told you become
afraid of making even the smallest mistake, and in the process let
other people define for you what you are capable of achieving.
Baseball Hall of Famer Ted Williams holds the major-league baseball
record for the highest batting average over a complete season. Yet despite
his record .406 average, the man who some proclaim to be the
greatest baseball hitter who ever lived only got a hit in approximately
four out of every ten batting attempts during his record-setting year.
The truth is no matter how talented you are, no one has a perfect batting
average, or competes at a high level in any aspect of their life,
without making a mistake.
No matter how smart or talented a person may be, no one is perfect.
That is an impossible task, and to always strive for perfection, with the
fear of never making a mistake, is an unquestionable way to guarantee
failure. Also, all of the time, energy, and effort you put into trying
to avoid making mistakes limits your growth, and discourages you
from trying new and different things.
To be better than your best, you have to reprogram yourself to accept
the fact that a mistake is not a failure. A mistake is merely a learning
opportunity and a stepping-stone on your path to success.
