The term mistake/goof ups imparts really a negative atmosphere in today’s world. We all commit mistakes, but no one say it with pride that they have done it. People made the term itself protray in such a inferior manner, that people hardly talks about it.
So the question arise- What is this mistake or goof ups really mean?
Technically going by dictionary it quotes as follow- “Something that doesn’t work out in search for a solution. Often used interchangeably with error.” So what do you think is the negative in it? Or have you thought ever that what is the real truth hiding behind this word?
The definition itself says it - when you are working and then something goes wrong. The mistakes are rather an indicator that tells us we are working. When you are doing something mistake will happen. The deeper meaning is “you have taken something but you have mistaken it”.
In every education societal culture they have given an inferior door to Goof Ups, marks are deducted, punishments are given, you knowledge goes for a toss, you are mocked around and you get register in the bad books as well. But don’t you think that you learn a lot from mistake
Unless your are working, how will you learn, how will you know that you are doing right or wrong, how will you connect things of what you have learned and DON’T YOU THINK THAT IN THIS ALL PROCESS GOOF UPS PLAY A MAJOR ROLE IN IT
Shall we change thinking of ours? Or shall we constrict ourselves in the nutshell of previously burden practices… What do you all think?
I would like to end this with a piece I wrote
Mistake after mistake.
That’s all I seem to make.
I take one step just to fall.
Take another and hit a wall.
I close my eyes, for I’m afraid,
Another mistake I know I made.
Yell at me, I know I did it wrong.
Try again? Am I that strong?
Can I take another step without fear?
What if another mistake is near?
Falling and tripping along the way.
I know I will get better at this one day.
I’ll keep trying no matter how long it takes.
One day I will learn from these mistakes.
They say practice makes perfection.
I want to learn from reflection,
And hold my head up high,
Looking up into the sky.
Able to walk without stalling.
Not worrying about falling.
Because at the end of this- it is me- I AM LEARNING
