If you don't learn from your mistakes, then inevitably you make the same mistakes again.
People simply ignore the thinking work.
They say that thinking is not 'work', at all.
Then in that case, what explanation do you give for the existence of think-tanks ?
Then that means, think-tanks never work at all or contribute anything to the society ??
Does that even make sense ?
To learn from your mistakes, you have to analyse where you went wrong, what you did wrong and then make conscious mental effort and use force of will never to let that situation / condition repeat again....never ever !!
Commit new mistakes but never the same ones...
Never repeat the same mistakes ever again.
Cause you are an intelligent being...
You are not an ass. You are not a donkey.
Life is a trainer. It's training you non-stop. 24 hrs a day.
A novice beginner / student always wonders and asks, "Why so brutal training ?"
Master replies, "Because you don't know who and what your opponents are, what you are pitted against and what you are gonna face tomorrow....."
Face all the hell in your trainings and practices before all hell is unleashed on you unprepared....
You never know what tomorrow may bring....
Tomorrow may be the worst day of your entire life.
Fight as if your life depends on it cause some day, it will.
When life delivers you it's last knock-out blow / punch, show life that it's not the last, it has just got started.
You are in the boxing ring with life!
So jab, jab, jab.....
Never be done with your blows! And repeat.
It's not the size of your muscles, it's the size of your fight that matters.
The glory is not in the victory, the glory is in the fight and a few battle scars on your face, to be proud of!
Man, this is my best quote ever. Can't believe I wrote this !! :)
If it inspires you, forward it.
