Question: What have your learned from mistakes?
Answer: Everything. I have learned everything in my life through mistakes. Whatever I passed through successfully, I do not remember any longer. But I remember every failure, humiliation, defeat as those are etched into my egoistic, self-justifying memory.
Mistakes and their burning shame, unpleasant memory is the best educator!
Moreover since our Human purpose is completely mapping, understanding, attaining Nature’s complete, perfect system, our mistakes, failures are not negative at all. By touching, sorting out, mapping the dead ends, wrong directions we get closer to the straight, successful path that leads to the most optimal, final state.
If we aim at life in such a goal oriented fashion, everything becomes purposeful!
