Being the best = making mistakes

‘Anyone who has never made a mistake has never tried anything new.’  Albert Einstein

If you want to be the best, you have to allow yourself to make mistakes. Without making mistakes, you simply cannot develop your craft. You cannot experiment, which means you cannot allow ‘chance’ factors to help you in your quest.

 Without making mistakes, you only rely on what others can and are willing to teach you. This means you cannot be the best, because what they teach you has probably been done before. And you only do the tried and tested things that have been done before, you will soon become average and therefore invisible. Only the best are constantly seen.

 Allowing yourself to make mistakes is incredibly liberating. You stop second-guessing your every move and instead enjoy ‘being in the flow’. You are working with your best energy instead of constantly allowing your negative voice to stop you in your tracks and reconsider in case it’s a mistake. Allow yourself to make mistakes, and you will start seeing every day as a fresh new pool of opportunities and delights.

 Your mistakes are opportunities for others to learn; don’t take these opportunities away from them. Keep yourself ahead of the game by focusing on what you want to do instead of worrying about making mistakes.

 The time is now.
