Your first choice is rarely the optimal choice: 5 lessons on being wrong

Summy Transcript

We as humans tend to be very self critical, especially when it comes to the important choices in life. If we make a mistake, or think we're wrong, what do we do? We beat ourselves up about it, right? However, making mistakes is ok, its to be expected. Believe it or not, it's a sign that we're headed down the right path and it can be seen in the first choices we make versus the best choices we make. We often tend to think that our first choice is the best choice. But rarely is that the case. For example, although it does happen, rarely is the first person we ever date the best person to marry. Another is a recent college grad thinking he or she knows what the optimal career path is. The difference between being 20 versus being 30 versus 40 is HUGE. At age 20, one cant possibly KNOW where life will ultimately take you. Say youre an entrepreneur. Theres a slim chance that your first idea will be a successfull one.  If it's not, the things you will have learned from taking that chance and having that experience will be some of life's most valuable lessons. Lessons that you will take with you and use on your next endeavor. Being wrong and making mistakes is something every human being on the Planet has done, and will continue to do. Its part of the process of being human. Its those instances that you will reap the most benefits from because, in life, learning is a never-ending process and there is a lot to be learned.  Lets take a quick look at 5 things you can learn fromm your own mistakes.  1. Previous decisions that you made that might seem poor to you now are not an indication of failure, but one of personal growth;  2. The likelihood that your first major decisions will wind up being wrong are quite high.  Only by practice do we get better;  3. Nobody is a master of everything. Instead, focus on being really good at many smaller things. It makes you more well-rounded;  4. Trust your decisions if you maintain the knowledge youve gained from your mistakes. With regard to areas that you're not familiar with, experiment intelligently;  5. When you fail at something, NEVER give up. Remember, it is only by failing that you're able to learn.
