Why People Who Make Mistakes Succeed Faster
A huge mistake people make is trying to learn everything before applying anything.
In other words, they seek an abundance of education before taking any action.
The most common reason is to avoid failure.
While some people are just lazy, others are simply scared of failure.
And I get it.
Who the hell likes to make mistakes and fail?
Who doesn’t want to get everything right on the FIRST attempt?
The reality is that in order to be successful, you must be willing to make mistakes.
…And MANY of them.
1) They are inevitably going to happen (You won’t succeed without making mistakes. It simply will not happen)
2) Mistakes are how you learn and gain experience
The more mistakes you make, the faster you’ll get the answers you’re seeking.
I know it probably doesn’t make sense, but take my word for it.
Making a mistake gives you proof that something does or doesn’t work.
For example, you can read all the information you want on a particular subject.
…But it’s meaningless until you apply it and know for a fact that it works.
If I make a 100% guarantee that my book Mr. $100 will show you how to earn $100 per day online, you can’t bet your life until you buy it and start earning money.
If you study successful people, you’ll see how they failed many times before getting things right.
Since the time I started blogging in 2014, I’ve made many mistakes.
However, I learned so much that I would’ve been willing to make many more in exchange for the same knowledge.
Experience is the best teacher.
You can’t get experience by reading a book.
You also can’t get it without making mistakes.
See how it works?
You need to physically do whatever you’re trying to get better at.
I can read countless books on writing.
But if I never sit down and write, my articles will lack quality.
My level of experience will be obvious.
This is why in just a year and a half, I’ve published over 260 articles.
Practice. Practice. Practice.
You can read a book on surfing, but you won’t be riding the waves perfectly the first time you surf.
But by making mistakes and falling off your board, you’ll learn how to balance your weight better and move effectively.
So what’s the moral of the story?
Learn something and apply it immediately.
This is referred to as speed of implementation.
The faster you apply ideas and knowledge, the faster you find what works, and the faster you succeed.
Hurry up and fail.
Repeat until successful.
