If I told you that making mistakes is a good thing, you won’t believe me. There are many stupid and serious mistakes every one of us can make, but you should avoid them. But, making some small mistakes is a good thing, actually they are necessary. You can listen to your friend’s mistakes the whole life, and you won’t learn anything. When you make a mistake, you will learn everything. Basically, if you want to improve your skill and knowledge, you must do something wrong to see what is right.
As already said, making serious mistakes should be avoided. Also, having unnecessary risk is something you should remove from your life. But, if you want to meet new people and to be a better employee, you must take some minor risks. For example, if you are a new employee, just listening to others ideas won’t make you some important person in your company. If you take a risk and suggest some new idea, there are high chances that it will be wrong. You will try again and it still may be wrong. But when you suggest something for the third or fourth time, it will be great. Beside colleagues will appreciate you because you have self-confidence and you don’t lose hope, your bosses will see you as someone who is trying to do something good.
The same thing is when you want to date somebody. Without making a mistake, you cannot tell what that person really wants or how he/she will react. The best and the most important benefit is that you will get knowledge and experience after each mistake. Eventually, you will get so much of experience that mistakes will be history.
