Making Mistakes is Better than Doing Nothing

Andy Core is an expert in Work-Life Balance, Wellbeing, and Peak Human Performance.

  Even if you’re not achieving as quickly as you’d like, making an attempt will get you further than being afraid to try

you further than being afraid to try

No matter what you do, doing something will most likely get you farther than doing nothing at all. Successful people get to be successful through action. When you’re working hard, you will likely make a lot of mistakes, but you will also achieve much more.

You can’t be afraid to take chances and do your best. Sometimes even your best efforts may fall short, but remember that you’re gaining experience. With that added experience and the knowledge you gain along the way, the next time may be the time you achieve what you were trying for.

You will gain nothing by sitting around waiting for happiness to come your way. You must get out and work at it, whether you’re trying for a relationship or a job promotion, or something else you hope to accomplish in your life.

It’s always preferable to make a strong effort and make an error, than it is to do nothing. Any strides you make, no matter how slow your progress, will take you further than never trying to take a step. So get out and do your best, even if you know you may mess up.

Strive to Be a Work in Progress

  Never stop construction on yourself


Never stop construction on yourself

The best thing you can do for yourself is to never be too satisfied. You can be proud of who you are, be happy in your job, and love your family with your whole heart, but never get so comfortable that you stop striving to be a better person. There is always room for improvement.

You may have a kind heart, be a great worker, a sweet and supportive spouse, and a caring and understanding parent. But you have your moments where you fall short. Everybody does, and they’re nothing to dwell on, but you can try to make those moments happen less.

If you’re lacking in any of these areas, and you know it, you are the only one who can work on it and make yourself better. Your goals are what you hope to accomplish in life, but once you reach one goal, you can’t stop there. Your personality, your brain, and your body should always be a work in progress.

Even if you feel happy, satisfied, and good about your life overall, you will get bored if you don’t keep working on making things better. Always be a work in progress, and never give up on making yourself and your life even more fulfilling.

The Road to Success Is Very Rocky

Andy Core is an expert in Work-Life Balance, Wellbeing, and Peak Human Performance.

The road of life has some obstacles. Just keep driving

The road of life has some obstacles.
Just keep driving

In case you haven’t yet realized, the road to success is always under construction. There will be roadblocks, delays, and traffic is slow in some places. But there will also be openings when you didn’t expect them, and sometimes a few miles of wide open road.

The most important thing you can do is to just keep driving. Whether your progress is slow or fast, even if you’re stuck somewhere for a while, at least you’re heading in the right direction. It may not be as soon as you hoped, but you’ll get there eventually.

And success is only temporary, so once you reach a goal in your life, you just have to get back on the road and keep heading toward the next one. You will find that if you get in the habit of thinking positively and doing what needs to be done, surviving the times when progress seems to have stopped will be a bit less frustrating.

Don’t sit and complain, because it will do no good. Turn on the radio and sing along, and ride it out until you get the next opportunity to take off and drive. And take advantage when you get a chance to drive freely for a while. Get in as much distance as you can.
